Postdoctoral positions in molecular modeling/computational biophysics

Postdoctoral positions are available in the chemistry department at Georgia
State University in Atlanta, GA, USA. The positions will focus on building 
structural models of protein complexes involved in gene expression and 
investigating their dynamics by large-scale molecular dynamics simulations. 
Projects involve application of advanced modeling techniques to incorporate
experimental data, specifically from cryo-electron microscopy, into models 
of biological assemblies. Candidates will have the opportunity to learn
state-of-the-art molecular modeling methods and collaborate with leading 
experimental groups. Significant supercomputing resources will be made 
available. For an additional perspective on this research, candidates are
encouraged to visit our group website ( 
The positions are supported by federal funding from the National Institutes
of Health and the National Science Foundation.

Required qualifications:
- PhD in computational chemistry, biophysics, computational biology 
  or a related discipline
- A strong background (and publication record) in molecular modeling,
  structural bioinformatics and data analysis
- Coding and scripting experience (e.g. Python or C/C++)
Desired qualifications:
- Familiarity with molecular modeling and visualization packages 
 (e.g. NAMD, AMBER, Rosetta, PyEmma, UCSF Chimera), good analytical 
  and communication skills
- ability to work independently

To be considered, please send a cover letter with a summary of research 
experience and a CV with a full list of publications together with names 
and contact details of three references to Prof. Ivaylo Ivanov 
(iivanov* After initial screening of applications, letters of 
reference will be requested on behalf of competitive candidates.
Initial appointment is for one year, renewable upon mutual agreement. 
Georgia State University is located in Atlanta - a multicultural city 
and one of the major metropolitan areas in the USA.
