Subject: 21.06.09 Postdoc in statistical mechanics-based biophysics (Zuckerman group - Portland, OR)
The Zuckerman group of Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, 
Oregon, USA is recruiting a quantitative postdoctoral researcher.  The 
group is both NSF and NIH-funded, engaging in a range of theoretical and 
applied biophysical research efforts.  Information on the group can be 
found on our website

The postdoc will work on one or more of the following: 
(i) statistical mechanics simulation and analysis methods for protein 
folding and/or binding, focusing on the weighted ensemble approach; 
(ii) a project with experimental collaborators investigating structural 
heterogeneity and allostery in a multivalent protein system, potentially 
involving molecular simulations and Bayesian inference from experimental 
(iii) trajectory analysis of cell dynamics in collaboration with 
cancer biologists; and 
(iv) molecular dynamics and enhanced sampling study of gap junction 
proteins in collaboration with a cryoEM experimental group.  
Projects typically involve a mix of methods development and application, 
depending on the strengths and interests of the candidate.  Applicants 
must have conducted statistical mechanics-related research using 
numerical techniques.  

Salary will follow NIH postdoctoral levels.

Portland is very bike friendly, scenic, and has a vibrant culture around 
music, coffee, beer, and food.  The Pacifc Ocean, Cascade Mountains, and 
Columbia Gorge are all less than 90 minutes away.  The group atmosphere
is highly supportive and welcoming to people from all backgrounds.
