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.
