Subject: 16.11.10 Postdoctoral Position: Drug Design Data Resource (D3R) at UC San Diego
A postdoctoral position is available working on the NIH-funded Drug 
Design Data (D3R) project (drugdesigndata.org). D3R collects hitherto 
unpublished protein-ligand structure and affinity datasets and uses them 
in blinded community prediction challenges, as a basis for validating 
and improving methods in computer-aided drug design. The work will 
include interacting with companies, institutes and laboratories in order 
to identify and collect optimal datasets; working with the data to 
prepare for prediction exercises; and developing approaches and software 
to score and process large numbers of predictions.  Some travel may be 
required to work directly on-site with companies wishing to contribute 
data. The work will also involve interactions with the projects IT 
team and the two principal investigators, Drs. Rommie Amaro and 
Michael Gilson.

UC San Diego provides a superb environment for integrative scientific 
research, as the health sciences, chemistry, physics, engineering, 
supercomputing, and other departments and resources are all located 
within walking distance on a single campus.  UC San Diego is a major 
center for research and training in molecular modeling, with multiple 
leading modeling and computational chemistry laboratories on campus.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in computational chemistry or a related 
field, be willing and able to work effectively as part of collaborative
team, have strong knowledge of methods and issues in structure-based 
drug design, and have strong programming or scripting experience and 
excellent spoken and written communication skills.  Compensation will 
be based on experience, following the NIH NRSA Salary Scale. 

To apply, please send a current CV and a brief statement of research 
interests and career goals, which may be incorporated into a cover 
letter, to d3r-apply:_:scicrunch.org. Please use the email subject line 
D3R postdoc application. UC San Diego is an EO/AA employer.  Position
is open immediately, and applications will be accepted until it is 
filled.
