Subject: 18.02.22 Postdoctoral Position in Computational Biophysics/Chemistry, UCR, Los Angeles area
A postdoctoral researcher position is available in computational and 
theoretical biophysics/chemistry in the chemistry department at the 
University of California, Riverside. The position will focus on 
1) carrying out molecular simulations and developing analysis and modeling 
tools to investigate non-covalent ligand-protein binding kinetics and 
thermodynamics; 2) developing and applying theory and new analysis 
methods from physics and chemistry to understand molecular diffusion. 
Candidates will have the opportunity to learn state-of-the-art simulation 
methodology and work with experimental collaborators. 

This position requires a Ph.D. in computational/theoretical chemistry, 
physics, chemical engineering or a related field. It requires very strong 
background in statistical mechanics, thermodynamics and theoretical 
skills, as well as experience and ability in molecular simulation. 
Experience in coding in C/C++, enhanced sampling techniques and/or 
data analysis is preferred. Competitive candidates are expected to have 
a strong publication record in molecular modeling and computational 

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. The position is open immediately.
