Subject: 21.05.07 Postdoc Researcher in Computational Chemistry/biophysics, UC, Riverside, LA Area
A postdoctoral researcher position is available immediately in computational 
and theoretical chemistry/biophysics in the chemistry department at the 
University of California, Riverside. The position will focus on developing 
and applying new methods to examine drug-protein binding kinetics and 
thermodynamics. The postdoc will also work on 1) carrying out molecular 
simulations and developing/applying analysis and/or machine learning tools 
to investigate non-covalent ligand-receptor binding; 2) developing and 
applying theory and new analysis methods from physics and chemistry to 
understand molecular binding/unbinding. Candidates will have the opportunity
to learn state-of-the-art simulation methodology and work with experimental
collaborators.

This position requires a Ph.D. in computational/theoretical chemistry, 
physics, chemical engineering or a related field. It requires very strong 
background in statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, theoretical skills, 
and coding in C/C++ and/or Python, as well as experience and ability in 
molecular simulation.  Experience in enhanced sampling techniques and/or 
data analysis is preferred. Competitive candidates are expected to have a 
strong publication record in molecular modeling and computational 
chemistry/biophysics.
To be considered, please send a cover letter with a summary of research 
experience and a CV together with names and contact details of three 
referees to: Prof. Chia-en Chang (chiaenc[*]ucr.edu)  
http://chemcha-gpu0.ucr.edu/ 

Positions will be initially for one year but successful postdocs are 
expected to have their appointment renewed. After reviewing applications, 
competitive candidates will be requested to provide three letters of 
references. The position is open immediately. Salary scale is based on 
the UC postdoc salary scale
