Subject: 18.03.12 Postdoctoral Position in Computational Biophysics, Chicago IL
A postdoctoral position is available in the Wereszczynski group in the Physics Department at the 
Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Illinois.  Our interdisciplinary research focuses on 
understanding the physical basis of biomolecular mechanisms through the use and development of 
atomic-scale simulations in collaboration with experimentalists.  The group has strong computational 
resources, including access to national supercomputing sites and state of the art local facilities, and 
is supported by federal funding from both the NIH and NSF.  We are located in the Center for 
Molecular Study of Condensed Soft Matter, a transdisciplinary center in the Pritzker Institute of 
Biomedical Science and Engineering.  Additional details are available at:

Postdoctoral fellows will perform cutting-edge molecular dynamics simulations of protein-nucleic acid 
complexes, travel to national scientific conferences, and mentor students in the lab.  The successful 
candidate will be enthusiastic, hard working, and have good communication skills.  The ability to work 
with and train others is essential, as is a strong publication history.  Experience with computational 
simulations, including, but not limited to, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, and quantum mechanical 
methods, is required, as is a Ph.D. in physics, chemistry, or a related field.  Experience with enhanced 
sampling, free energy calculations, or coarse-grain simulations is highly desirable.  

The start date for this position is flexible but would ideally be between the summer and fall of 2018.  
The contract is for one year and is renewable for a second year, pending a performance evaluation.
Applicants should apply at:  

A complete application includes a curriculum vitae, a cover letter, and contact information for three 
references.  The cover letter should describe past and current research, future research interests, 
and applicable skills.  Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position 
is filled.
