Subject: 21.06.30 Postdoc in Computational Chemistry/biophysics, Univ of California, Riverside
A postdoctoral researcher position is available immediately in 
computational and theoretical chemistry/biophysics in the 
chemistry department at the University of California, 
Riverside (Great Los Angeles area). 
The position will focus on developing and applying new methods 
to examine drug-protein binding kinetics and thermodynamics for 
multiple kinases. 

The postdoc will work on 1) using the Binding Kinetics Tool 
(BKiT) package developed in the group and developing/applying analysis 
to investigate non-covalent ligand-receptor binding; 
2) developing and applying theory and new analysis methods to 
examine conformational changes and understand molecular binding/unbinding; 
3) applying our new deep learning tools to enhance conformational sampling. 
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 strong background in statistical mechanics, 
thermodynamics, analytical skills, and coding in C/C++ and/or Python. 
Experience and ability in writing papers and in performing molecular 
dynamics simulation techniques are also required. Competitive candidates 
are expected to have a strong publication record in molecular modeling 
and computational chemistry/biophysics. 

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.
