Subject: 19.12.03 Postdoctoral position in biomolecular modeling and computer-aided drug discovery
The Miao Lab at the Center for Computational Biology, University of Kansas 
( is looking for a highly motivated Postdoctoral Researcher to work on 
biomolecular modeling and computer-aided drug discovery. Projects in the lab involve 
computer-aided drug discovery, method developments for enhanced simulations of 
biomolecular recognition (such as protein-ligand binding and protein-protein interactions), 
and multiscale modeling of cellular signaling processes ( 
In collaboration with world-leading experimentalists in medicinal chemistry and pharmacology, 
the new postdoc will have the opportunity to work on unprecedented simulations and drug design of 
functionally important proteins that are critical targets for treating Alzheimers disease 
and human cancers.

The ideal candidate is expected to have strong publication record in biomolecular modeling and 
computational biophysics/chemistry. Programming skills (e.g., bash scripting, python 
and Fortran/C++), expertise in computational modeling (such as molecular dynamics simulations, 
virtual screening and free energy calculations), and successful experimental collaboration experience 
are preferred.

Applications are accepted until the position is filled. The initial appointment is for one year 
and the contract is renewable upon satisfactory research progress. Salary and benefits will be 
based on experience, in compliance with KU and NIH standards. 

The University of Kansas (KU) is located in Lawrence, KS, which is a vibrant college town 
with plenty of attractions, outdoor activities, great restaurants and cultural events. 
Lawrence is also only ~35-minute drive from the Kansas City. 
KU is an EO/AAE, full policy
