Subject: 22.05.06 Postdoc in computational biophysics at UMass Amherst
At least one postdoctoral Research Associate position in the general area of Computational Biophysics 
is available in the University of Massachusetts Amherst Institute of Applied Life Sciences (IALS), 
a fast-growing enterprise dedicated to developing the next generation of life science products and 
technologies to improve human health. 

The candidate will be able to work on a range of areas including: 

* computational method development (e.g., coarse graining, implicit solvent, enhanced sampling)
* intrinsically disordered proteins (e.g., binding, liquid-liquid phase transition, drug interaction)
* transmembrane ion channels (e.g., gating and regulation, BK, TRV4)
* physics-inspired machine-learning methods (e.g., protein function prediction, polymer design)

For more information on our current research interests and topics, please refer to our group 

The candidate should have a Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, or a related field, withe extensive 
experience and strong publication record in biomolecular modeling and simulation. Successful 
applicants should also have strong background in scientific computing and statistical mechanics 
and display excellent general knowledge and understanding of biophysics, computation and 
biomolecular modeling. An ideal candidate would also display a strong passion for science, 
and the ability and desire to work both independently and as part of a team. We work closely 
with experimental collaborators in many projects and good communication skills will be a 
strong plus.

Initial appointments will be for one year with the possibility of renewal for at least three years. 
The salary will be competitive and follow NIH and UMass guidelines. Application materials 
should be sent by email to Dr. Jianhan Chen at: Please use 
"Computational Biophysicist 2022" as the subject line. The application materials should include: 
a cover letter stating interests and long-term goals, CV, and list of at least three references.
