Subject: 17.01.26 Postdoctoral Position in Molecular Solvation Theory, California State University, Northridge, CA
A postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Physics and Astronomy
at the California State University, Northridge (CSUN) with Dr. Tyler Luchko. The
position is in the field of computational chemistry and biophysics. The work
will primarily involve improving the numerical implementation and theoretical
basis of existing implicit molecular solvent models. In addition, the successful
candidate will also apply molecular modeling methods to perform free energy,
pKa, and enhanced sampling calculations related to molecular recognition.

The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in physics, chemistry, biophysics,
theoretical or computational chemistry, or related fields. Candidates should
also have

* a strong background in statistical physics, computational science, and
  molecular modeling;
* exceptional computational skills, including parallel programming (MPI and
  Fortran) and scripting (Python); and
* good spoken and written communication skills.

An ideal candidate will also have

* a general understanding of biophysics;
* experience with implicit solvent models, free energy calculations, constant pH
  calculations, and the AmberTools molecular modeling suite; and
* familiarity with C and C++.

The position is available immediately and applications will be reviewed until
the position is filled. The initial appointment will be for one year and will be
renewable upon mutual agreement. Please direct questions to To
