Description:

 We are seeking for highly motivated and talented post-doctoral researchers. 
 Qualified applicants will be involved in research projects related to designing novel functional 
 and/or drug-like molecules using artificial-intelligence algorithms.


 In the laboratory of computational biology & chemistry (Prof. Juyong Lee; https://sites.google.com/view/lcbc ), 
 various computational methods are being developed to discover novel functional molecules by combining 
 cheminformatics, machine learning, quantum chemistry, molecular dynamics, and free energy calculations. 
 Using computational methods, we aim to discover novel molecules with desired properties including 
 drug-candidates as well as to develop novel computational methods for more efficient discovery of molecules.
 Qualified applicants will be working on developing a novel computational algorithm to predict 
 chemical/physical properties of virtual molecules and their synthetic pathways using machine-learning approaches. 
 This project is a collaborative project with a private company Arontier co. (http://arontier.co/). 
 The current research program is supported by the National Research Foundation of Korea. 


 Kangwon National University (http://www.kangwon.ac.kr/english/index.do) is one of the largest universities in South Korea. 
 Our university has more than 30,000 students enrolled and 6,000 faculty members. 
 The Department of Chemistry in Kangwon National University has a very competitive and active research program and faculty members. 

  * Research Areas

Machine Learning for Chemistry and Biophysics
Development of novel free energy calculation methods
Development of accurate molecular property prediction methods
Development of efficient molecular design algorithm. 

* Required Qualifications:

Ph.D. in theoretical/computational chemistry, structural biology, bioinformatics, biochemistry or related disciplines.
Basic programming skills in python and working knowledge of statistics. 
Established record of high-quality scientific research and publications in high impact journals
Experiences in the fields of molecular modeling, quantum mechanics, molecular dynamics and chemoinformatcs are preferred
Ability to work both independently and as a member of a team
Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English
