Subject: 18.08.23 Postdoc Position in Computer-Aided Drug Design, Washington State University, Spokane, WA
A NIH-funded Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available immediately in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Washington State University College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, in Spokane with Dr. Senthil Natesan. The computational research will focus on dynamic phenomena at the membrane interface: membrane-protein-drug interactions with special emphasis on allosteric modulation of GPCRs and ligand-gated ion-channels. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to work on several drug discovery projects in close collaboration with experimental pharmacologists, immunologists, and cancer biologists. More information on our current research interests can be found here: https://pharmacy.wsu.edu/directory/senthil-natesan/ Required Qualifications: Recent PhD in theoretical biophysics or biochemistry, computational chemistry/cheminformatics or closely related field. Strong background in biophysics, statistical mechanics, medicinal chemistry, computation and biomolecular modeling (protein-peptide, protein-ligand, and membrane-drug interactions). Demonstrated experience with at least one of the major biomolecular modeling packages (MOE, Schrodinger, and/or SYBYL-X), expertise in using one or more of the MD simulation packages (NAMD, GROMACS, AMBER, & CHARMM). Demonstrated computational skills including, working in Linux OS environment, strong programming (C, C++, or Java) and scripting ability (Python or Perl). Research publications in modeling and simulation. Strong motivation with a passion for science, and the ability and desire to work both independently and as part of a team. Good oral and written communication skills are essential. Preferred Qualifications: Strong expertise in the field of atomistic and coarse-grained MD simulations; experience in modeling GPCRs and ligand-gated ion channels and membrane simulations is a plus.
