Subject: 19.03.21 Research associate scientist , postdoc, PhD and master students positions for computational drug discovery

Position descriptions
Several positions for research associate scientists, postdoc, PhD and master students are available in Prof. Yuan's group at the Shenzhen
Institute of Advanced Technology (SIAT), Chinese Academy of Sciences. The working place is located in Shenzhen, a modern and
international city next to Hong Kong. SIAT focuses on highly interdisciplinary research with strong financial support from the local government.
The open positions focus on computational biology and modern drug discovery, covering AI tool development, using molecular simulations
to understand biological mechanisms, rational protein design, computer-aided drug discovery and many others.
A new modern drug discovery center will be led by Prof. Yuan. Multidisciplinary subjects will be combined with other leading scientists in the
world. Candidates with biology, chemistry, biotechnology or computer science background are strongly welcome.
This is a multi-culture research group and we warmly welcome qualified scientists from all over the world with different backgrounds to join us.

1. Ideally, postdoc candidates should be no older than 35 years old. Candidates should have good English skills for communications.
2. For computational biology, candidates should have experience in molecular simulations, computational drug discovery,
rational protein design or system biology. Experiences in organic synthesis or structural biology are also welcome. Experience in Kinme workflow is a plus.
3. For the computational tool development, programming experience in Python, C/C++ or Java is compulsory.
4. We also hire experimental scientists in biochemistry or structural biology. Experience in membrane proteins (such as GPCR or ion channel) or enzyme catalysis would be ideal.
5. For the PhD/Master students, it would be compulsory to apply for the Chinese government scholarship successfully first. More detailed information can be found here
Please choose "236 University of Chinese Academy of Sciences" as your targeted university when you fill in the online application system.
