Subject: 24.02.01 Postdoctoral position in machine learning for biomolecular simulation and modeling, Dallas, TX, USA
We are seeking a highly motivated and talented Postdoctoral Research Fellow 
to join the Tao research group in the Theoretical and Computational Chemistry 
program at Southern Methodist University. The successful candidate will be at 
the forefront of integrating advanced machine learning techniques with 
biomolecular simulation and modeling to address complex biological problems. 
This position offers a unique opportunity to contribute to cutting-edge research 
in a vibrant scientific environment.

Key Responsibilities:
1. Develop and apply machine learning algorithms to enhance the accuracy and 
   efficiency of biomolecular simulations.

2. Collaborate with an interdisciplinary team of scientists to design and implement 
   computational models for predicting biomolecular dynamics and interactions.

3. Analyze large datasets derived from simulations and experimental results 
   to uncover novel insights into biomolecular mechanisms.

4. Contribute to the development of new methodologies for integrating experimental 
   data with computational models.

5. Publish research findings in high-impact peer-reviewed journals and present 
   at conferences.

1. Ph.D. in Chemistry, Biophysics, Physics, Biology, Computer Science, or a related 
   field, with a strong emphasis on machine learning and computational modeling.

2. Demonstrated experience in biomolecular simulation techniques such as molecular 
   dynamics, Monte Carlo simulations, or related methods.

3. Proficiency in machine learning, particularly in deep learning frameworks such as 
   TensorFlow or PyTorch.

4. Strong programming skills in Python, R, or similar languages, and experience with 
   high-performance computing environments.

5. Excellent analytical, organizational, and communication skills, with a proven track 
   record of publishing scientific research.
