Subject: 17.11.20 POSTDOC and PHD STUDENT positions in Computational Drug Discovery
Professor Xiaolin Cheng's group in the College of Pharmacy at The Ohio State University is seeking talented young scientists interested in Computational Drug Discovery to join his team. There are 1 immediate Postdoctoral and 1-2 PhD Student (2018 Fall) positions available in the group. POSTDOCTORAL POSITION: A postdoctoral scholar position is immediately available in Dr. Cheng's lab. Candidates should have a PhD degree in chemistry, biophysics, chemical engineering, or related discipline. They are expected to have a strong background and training in biomolecular simulation and modeling. Experience in the following areas is particularly desired * Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, enhanced sampling methods, and free energy calculations * Electronic structure methods, QM/MM methods for modeling enzyme reactions The selected candidate will participate in an NIH funded project to develop new oxime reactivators of organophosphate(OP)-inhibited human acetylcholinesterase (hAChE). Specific computational task will involve identifying key structural factors that limit the reactivation of OP-inhibited enzyme by oximes. Interested applicants should contact Dr. Cheng by e-mail at cheng.1302:-:osu.edu with current CV and a cover letter. Ohio State is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, or protected veteran status. PHD STUDENTS POSITIONS: 1-2 PhD student positions for Fall Semester 2018 are available in Dr. Cheng's lab. The PhD research will be focused on computational medicinal chemistry, involving applying Quantum Mechanics (QM), Molecular Dynamics (MD), Molecular Docking and Data Analytics methods to drug design and discovery. The research is expected to cross-cut several disciplines, including medicinal chemistry, computational chemistry, biochemistry & biophysics, molecular structural biology and systems biology. It will also be strongly tied to OSUs Translational Data Analytics Institute (https://discovery.osu.edu/tda/). Qualifications Required * BS in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Pharmaceutical Sciences or related disciplines * Strong interest in computational chemistry, biomolecular modeling and drug discovery * Some experience in Linux, programming and shell scripting is desired but not required More details about the graduate program tracks in OSUs College of Pharmacy can be found at: http://pharmacy.osu.edu/about/medicinal-chemistry-pharmacognosy Interested applicants should contact Dr. Cheng by e-mail at cheng.1302:-:osu.edu, or apply to the graduate program at: http://pharmacy.osu.edu/future-students/apply-graduate-program. Indicate the Area of Specialization as Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmacognosy at the bottom of the "Program Data" tab. The College of Pharmacy deadline for completed applications with financial assistance (Graduate Teaching Associateships and Graduate Research Associateships) for the Fall Term is December 15.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
