Subject: 18.05.08 Postdoc in Computational Biophysics/Chemistry, UCR, Los Angeles area
One postdoctoral researcher position is available in computational and 
theoretical biophysics/chemistry in the chemistry department at the 
University of California, Riverside. The position requires background in 
statistical mechanics and thermodynamics, and will focus on 
1) carrying out molecular simulations and developing analysis and modeling 
tools to investigate non-covalent ligand-receptor 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 and programming. 
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 
biophysics/chemistry.  


To be considered, please send a cover letter with a summary of research 
experience and a CV together with names and contact details of three 
referees to: Prof. Chia-en Chang (chiaenc.@.ucr.edu)  
http://chemcha-gpu0.ucr.edu/  or http://chem.ucr.edu/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. The position is open immediately. . Salary scale is based on 
the UC postdoc salary scale:
