Subject: 18.05.03 Open Positions in Computational Biophysics at the University of Chicago
Two full-time positions for postdoctoral researchers are available immediately in the group of Prof Benoit Roux in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Chicago to pursue computational studies using molecular dynamics simulations techniques. SCOPE: The projects are focused on kinase inhibitor binding specificity [1-2] and protein-protein recognition [3-5]. See the references below or our web site for more details (http://thallium.bsd.uchicago.edu/RouxLab). REQUESTED SKILLS: The ideal candidates will be independent and highly motivated researchers with a strong PhD background in computational biophysics or chemistry. Familiarity with computational techniques, such as umbrella sampling and alchemical free energy perturbation, Markov State Models, QM/MM is desirable. Any candidate should have excellent programming skills. DETAILS: Funding for the position is secured for at least 3-4 years, with opportunities for extension. The salary level follows the NIH scale. APPLICATION: Submit cover letter, personal statement, CV and one letter of recommendation directly to Prof Benoit Roux by email (roux at uchicago.edu). References: 1. Meng Y, Pond MP, Roux B.
