Subject: 18.05.22 Postdoc in Computational Biophysical Chemistry, Lund University, Sweden
A 2-year postdoc position is available from September 2018 or earlier in 
Par Soderhjelm's computational research group at Lund University, Sweden. 
Within the long-term goal of understanding conformational fluctuations
of proteins, the project can be largely tailored to fit the skills and 
research interests of the candidate. 
Please read further below and apply before June 10 at

The Soderhjelm research group at the Center for Molecular Protein Science 
(CMPS) develops and applies computational methods for understanding 
protein dynamics and addressing fundamental questions of how proteins 
function. The group is supported by the Swedish research council (VR) 
and collaborates with both experimental and computational research 
groups at the CMPS and other chemistry divisions. For more information, see

The post-doctoral researcher will be part of a team trying to understand
the nature of local fluctuations of proteins by computational means
validated by experimental data, such as hydrogen exchange rates. The 
project may focus on different aspects of the problem depending on the
skills and interests of the applicant, such as:
* Development of enhanced-sampling methods
* Strategies for automated selection of collective variables
* Testing and development of polarizable force fields for proteins.
* Methods for validating computational results against experiments.
* Free-energy methods for ligand binding to flexible binding sites. 

Qualification requirements
* PhD within computational chemistry, biophysical chemistry or 
  another relevant field
* Substantial experience with protein simulation.
* Significant experience of developing programs or advanced analysis scripts.
* Very good oral and written proficiency in English.
* Ability to independently lead the work in this project and interact
  smoothly and efficiently with the other members of the team
* A strong publication record. 

It is highly qualifying if the applicant has deep experience in 
any of the following areas:
* Enhanced-sampling methods
* Markov state models or dynamic analysis of simulations
* Force-field development
* Free-energy methods for ligand binding
