Subject: 18.10.18 Positions in Computer-Aided Drug Design at University of Maryland
Postdoc and PhD student positions in Computer-Aided Drug Design at University of Maryland Shen lab at University of Maryland is seeking self-motivated individuals interested in combining chemistry, biology, physics and computation to make an impact in biomedical discovery and materials innovation. Example projects: - Development/implementation of constant pH molecular dynamics for rapid pKa and free energy calculations (covalent and noncovalent inhibitor design) - Simulations of pH-responsive materials (novel hydrogels for bioelectronics) - Inhibitor design targeting proteases, kinases, and GPCRs (cancer and other diseases) - Ion and substrate transport through channels and transporters (cardiovascular disease, pain, and drug resistance) - Machine learning assisted property predictions Requirement: - Good physical chemistry knowledge - Skills in scripting and/or programming (required for postdoc and desirable for PhD student candidate) - Experience in molecular dynamics simulations (required for postdoc and desirable for PhD student candidate) Compensation: - Postdoc fellow: annual salary of $49k-60k commensurate with the experience level - PhD student: annual stipend of about $25k plus healthcare and paid tuition Location: - Within walking distance to Baltimore inner harbor - Within driving/train distance: 1 hour to Washington DC; 2 hours to Philadelphia; 3 hours to New York City Relevant publications: Wu S, et al., Electrical writing onto a dynamically responsive polysaccharide medium: patterning structure and function into a reconfigurable medium. Adv Funct Mater, ASAP, 2018. Harris et al, Proton-coupled conformational allostery modulates the inhibitor selectivity for beta-secretase. J Phys Chem Lett 8: 4832-4837, 2017. Huang et al, Mechanism of pH-dependent activation of the sodium-proton antiporter NhaA. Nat Commun 7: 12940, 2016. Further information: http://www.computchem.org
