Subject: 22.04.18 Postdoc position in Computational Photobiology, Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas
Postdoc position in Computational Photobiology,
Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas
The Liang Group is seeking a motivated and independent postdoc to work on the multiscale
simulation of photoactive proteins.
- Ph.D. degree in Physics, Chemistry, Biology or related field
- Research experience in at least two of the following areas:
- Biomolecular simulation
- Excited-state electronic structure calculation
- Quantum dynamics and mixed quantum-classical dynamics simulation
- Enhanced sampling method and free energy calculation
- Software development
- Good publication record
- Effective verbal and written communication skills
Possible research topics involve studying photochemical reactions in biomolecules using the
advanced electronic structure and quantum dynamics methods, and developing enhanced sampling
methods for studying chemical reactions in biomolecules. The successful candidate is expected
to have strong problem-solving skills in molecular simulations, and work independently
without much reliance on the PI's hands-on guidance. In this regard, some coding experience
is preferred but not necessary. The candidate is also expected to actively discuss research
progress with the PI, attend conferences to present research, and publish high-quality
results. Other responsibilities may include mentoring new students.
The initial employment is one year, with the possibility of extension.
