Subject: 21.04.22 Postdoc position in biomolecular modeling & simulation, Ivanov group, GSU, Atlanta, USA
Postdoctoral position in molecular modeling/computational biophysics

A postdoctoral position is available in the chemistry department at Georgia 
State University in Atlanta, GA, USA. The position will focus on 
computational modeling of protein complexes involved in genome maintenance
and gene expression. The work involves large-scale molecular dynamics 
simulations and the application of advanced modeling techniques to 
incorporate experimental data, specifically from cryo-electron microscopy, 
into structural models of biological assemblies. Candidates will have the 
opportunity to learn state-of-the-art simulation and analysis methods and 
collaborate with leading experimental groups. Significant supercomputing 
resources will be made available to carry out the project. For an additional
perspective on this research, candidates are encouraged to visit our group
website at . The position is supported by federal
funding from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science 

Required qualifications: 
-	PhD in computational chemistry, biophysics, computational biology 
        or a related discipline
-	A strong background (and publication record) in molecular dynamics,
        enhanced sampling methods, free energy calculations and data analysis
-	Coding and scripting experience (e.g. Python or C/C++)
Desired qualifications: 
-	Familiarity with molecular modeling and visualization packages 
       (e.g. NAMD, AMBER, VMD, PyEmma, UCSF Chimera), good analytical 
        and communication skills
-	Experience with chain-of-replicas path optimization methods

To be considered, please send a cover letter with a summary of research 
experience and a CV with a full list of publications together with names
and contact details of three references to Prof. Ivaylo Ivanov at  
iivanov+* . After initial screening of applications, letters of 
reference will be requested on behalf of competitive candidates. 

Initial appointment is for one year, renewable upon mutual agreement. 
Georgia State University is located in Atlanta - a multicultural city 
and one of the major metropolitan areas in the USA.
