Subject: 18.03.02 Postdoc and PhD student openings in Computer-Aided Drug Design center
We are seeking self-motivated individuals interested in combining chemistry, biology, physics and computers to 
make an impact in biomedical discovery and materials innovation.

Example projects:
- Dynamics and inhibition of proteases and kinases
- Ion and proton transport in pH-gradient driven transmembrane proteins 
- Development/implementation of constant pH molecular dynamics for pKa predictions and free energy calculations
- Dynamics and self-assembly of pH-responsive materials

Requirement:
- PhD student candidate shall have completed at least 2 physical chemistry courses
- Skills in scripting and/or programming
- Postdoc candidate shall have experience in molecular dynamics simulations and/or free energy calculations

Compensation:
- PhD student annual stipend level about $24k
- Postdoc fellow annual salary range $44k-55k (commensurate with experience)

Location: 
- She lab, CADD center, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, 
   University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, Baltimore, MD, USA
- Within walking distance to Baltimore inner harbor
- Within driving distance: 1 hr to Washington DC; 2 hrs to Philadelphia; 3 hrs to NYC
