Subject: 17.11.15 Postdoc, CpHMD of bioluminescence, Aix-Marseille Univ, France
One 18-months postdoctoral position is available in the theoretical
chemistry group, Institut de Chimie Radicalaire, Aix-Marseille 
Universit, France ( Funded by the French
ANR project BIOLUM involving several research groups in France and
abroad, the proposed line of research aims at elucidating theoretically
how the firefly bioluminescence depends on the pH. The selected
postdoctoral scientist will use modeling tools and workflows recently
developed in our group [DOI: 10.1039/C7CP00991G,]. Accordingly, the candidate is required
to demonstrate a strong background in molecular dynamics simulations,
possibly with experience in constant-pH MD approaches. Among the possible
model developments relevant to the project, the parametrization of the
luciferase luminophore protonation states and/or the implementation of a
Particle-Mesh Ewald-based calculation of the electrostatic potential
(needed in QM/MM computations) will be considered.

The selected candidate is expected to start during the first trimester
2018. She/he will find a particularly pleasant and stimulating 
environment, with scientists working in various fields (method
development, photochemistry, magnetism, biochemistry, radical reactivity,
materials, ) and up-to-date local/national HPC resources.

The net salary (before income taxes), depending on the candidate
experience, ranges from 2000/month (no exp, first year) and 2500/month
(>3 years exp, second year).
Applicants will send a complete CV and a motivation letter to Nicolas
Ferr, professor of Theoretical Chemistry, at nicolas.ferre*|*
