Subject: 19.03.13 Postdoctoral Position in Computational Biophysics, Chicago IL
A postdoctoral position is available in the Wereszczynski group in the Physics Department at the 
Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Illinois.  Our interdisciplinary research focuses on 
understanding the physical basis of biomolecular mechanisms through the use and development of 
atomic-scale simulations in collaboration with experimentalists.  The group has strong computational 
resources, including access to national supercomputing sites and state of the art local facilities, and 
is supported by federal funding from both the NIH and NSF.  We are located in the Center for 
Molecular Study of Condensed Soft Matter, a transdisciplinary center in the Pritzker Institute of 
Biomedical Science and Engineering.  Additional details are available at:

Postdoctoral fellows will perform cutting-edge molecular dynamics simulations of protein-nucleic 
acid complexes, travel to national scientific conferences, and mentor students in the lab.  The 
successful candidate will be enthusiastic, hardworking, and have good communication skills.  The 
ability to work with and train others is essential, as is a strong publication history.  Experience with 
computational simulations, including, but not limited to, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, and 
quantum mechanical methods, is required, as is a Ph.D. in physics, chemistry, or a related field.  
Experience with enhanced sampling, free energy calculations, Bayesian statistics, or coarse-grain 
simulations is also highly desirable.
The start date for this position is flexible but would ideally be between the summer and fall of 2019.  
The contract is for one year and is renewable for a second year, pending a performance evaluation.  
Applicants should apply by sending a curriculum vitae, a cover letter, and contact information for 
three references to jwereszc|  The cover letter should describe past and current research, 
future research interests, and applicable skills.  Review of applications will begin April 8th 2019 and 
continue until the position is filled.
