Subject: 18.10.16 Post-Doctoral Associate Position at the Centre for Molecular Simulation, University of Calgary, Canada
Eyes-High Postdoctoral Position is available immediately in the groups of Sergei Noskov and Peter Tieleman to work on the lipophilic regulation of ion channels with particular emphasis on the development of accurate models of myocyte membranes and development of in-silico approach for studying cardio-toxicity and mechanisms of drug-induced arrhythmias. The project, in collaboration with several world-leading groups in heart physiology and IBM as an industrial partner is focused on extending all-atom and coarse-grained MD simulations of ion channels in multi-component membranes as an element of a platform for chemistry-to-heart rhythms paradigm combining protein simulations to cell- and tissue-level signal propagation. Working at the CMS will provide access to unique computational resources, world-class in-house expertise in molecular simulation, free energy protocols and development of novel simulation techniques (coarse-grained models, polarizable force-fields) aiming at improved understanding of membrane protein/lipid interactions. Relevant areas of experience might include material sciences, chemical and biological engineering, physical chemistry or statistical physics, bio-moiecular simulation, method development, condensed phase simulations, free energy and enhanced sampling simulations, analysis of Cryo-EM maps and machine learning techniques applied to bio-molecular systems. We are not looking for the expertise in QSAR, drug design or applications of quantum-chemistry to organic molecules. A highly competitive salary will provided as part of this award for two (2) years from the Vice-President (Research). Eyes-High Postdoctoral Scholars (EHPDS) are recruited as Postdoctoral Associates. Extended health benefit plan will be provided for the trainee and his/her family (dental, vision, health and prescription benefits) in addition to mandatory basic health coverage (doctor's visits, hospital stays, etc) Other benefits such as relocation expenses, computer, travel/conference expenses, etc. are negotiable. Postdoctoral scholars will have access to the services of the Staff Wellness Centre and the Employee Family Assistance Program (EFAP) offered through LifeWorks. There are no citizenship restrictions. The Eyes High Postdoctoral Scholarship is offered to NEW postdoctoral scholars who are external to the University of Calgary. PDS currently working or whose latest degree was completed, or is in progress, at the University of Calgary, are not eligible. Applicants must hold a PhD awarded within the last 5 years. The date of degree completion is used to determine the eligibility of applicants. In accordance with the University's regulations this is the date when the applicant has completed all the steps required to obtain their degree, including successful defense and submission of the corrected final thesis. An EHPDS must commence the appointment within five years of being awarded a PhD degree. Salary Incentive: The University of Calgary encourages all EHPDS to apply for external awards, which can be used as a top-up to the guaranteed salary through Eyes High Award.
