Subject: 16.11.23 Postdoc & Ph.D. Training Opportunities in Computer-Aided Drug Design, Washington State University, Spokane, WA
A postdoctoral research associate position is available immediately in the Section of Experimental & Systems Pharmacology at Washington State University, Health Sciences in Spokane with Dr. Senthil Natesan. The computational research will focus on dynamic phenomena at the membrane interface: membrane-drug interactions, and membrane-protein- drug interactions. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to work on additional drug discovery projects in close collaboration with experimental pharmacologists, pharmacokineticists, and cancer biologists. More information on our current research interests can be found here: http://www.pharmacy.wsu.edu/facultystaff/bios/natesan.s.html Required Qualifications The ideal candidate will have: A recent PhD in theoretical biophysics or biochemistry, computational chemistry/cheminformatics or closely related field. Strong background in biophysics, statistical mechanics, medicinal chemistry, computation and biomolecular modeling (protein-peptide, protein-ligand, and membrane-drug interactions). Extensive experience with at least one of the major biomolecular modeling packages (MOE, Schrodinger, and SYBYL-X), expertise in using one or more of the MD simulation packages (NAMD, GROMACS, AMBER, and CHARMM). Excellent computational skills including, working in Linux OS environment, strong programming (C, C++, or Java) and scripting ability (Python or Perl); Experience in R and/or MATLAB is a plus. Research publications in modeling and simulation. Strong motivation with a passion for science, and the ability and desire to work both independently and as part of a team. Good oral and written communication skills are essential. Preferred Qualifications Strong expertise in the field of atomistic and coarse-grained MD simulations; experience in modeling CYP450s and membrane simulations is a plus. Knowledge about force field parameterization.
