  1 year, renewable upon review

Ewha Womans University ( is one of the 
most prestigious universities in South Korea. Ewha has continued to evolve 
throughout its more than 130-year history and now, it became the largest women's
university in the world with 23,000 enrolled students. The College of Pharmacy
in Ewha is the oldest and largest school of pharmacy in Korea with a history of more 
than sixty years of Pharmacy education. Moreover, only the top 1% of excellent students 
in Korea enter the College of Pharmacy, and our graduates now number over 10,000. 

In the laboratory of molecular modeling and drug design (Prof. Sun Choi;, various technology and methodology of 
CADD, cheminformatics, computational medicinal chemistry and biomolecular
simulations are studied. Using computational methods, we develop the 
strategies for drug discovery involving cancer, virus, cardiovascular disease
osteoporosis, etc. Adapting to the target systems, various studies are in
progress such as docking and binding mode analysis, active site and
pharmacophore analysis, 3D-quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR)
study and activity prediction, chemical library and molecular design (target
structure-/ligand-based), HTS data analysis, hit/lead optimization, study 
of molecular interactions and mechanisms, data mining and machine learning. 
Based on the high-quality and extensive research outcomes, we are continuously 
publishing articles in world-renowned journals, such as Journal of the American 
Chemical Society, Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, and Journal of Computer-Aided 
Molecular Design. Our laboratory was selected as the National Leading Research 
Laboratory (NLRL) funded by the Korean government, and has engaged in active 
research activities.
