Subject: 17.05.29 Postdoc and Ph.D Positions in Computational Chemistry/Biophysics in U of California, Riverside
Postdoctoral position in Computational Chemistry/Biophysics

A postdoctoral researcher position is available in computational chemistry/biophysics 
in the chemistry department at the University of California, Riverside. The 
position will focus on developing and applying molecular simulations, theories and 
modeling tools to work on research projects related to non-covalent ligand-protein 
binding kinetics and thermodynamics. 

Required qualification: 
- Ph.D. in computational chemistry, physics, biophysics or a related discipline. 
- Good at molecular dynamics simulations and familiar with enhanced sampling techniques.
- Scripting and simple coding experience
- Published articles in biomolecular modeling and simulations, and easily communicating with people. 

Desired qualification:
- Strong background in statistical mechanics and thermodynamics
- Experience with ligand-protein binding calculations
- Programming in C and/or Fortran

To be considered, please send a cover letter with a summary of research interests 
and a CV together with names and contact details of three referees to: 
Prof. Chia-en Chang (

Positions will be initially for one year but successful postdocs are expected 
to have their appointment renewed. After reviewing applications, competitive 
candidates will be requested to provide three letters of references. For more information, 
please contact Prof. Chang. The position is open immediately.

Opportunities for Graduate Students

Our group has openings for prospective Ph.D. students in computational 
chemistry and biophysics. We are looking for highly motivated students to 
perform research in molecular modeling, e.g. molecular dynamics simulations 
and Brownian dynamics simulations, and statistical mechanics theory to deepen 
our understanding in molecular binding and answer questions for chemical 
and biological systems. The research can be applied to practical applications 
such as drug development and our work also collaborates closely with 
experimental groups.  or    

Interested candidates are welcome to contact Prof. Chang directly by email: and should also apply to the UCR chemistry graduate program.
