University of Kentucky expects to close applications for Molecular
Modeling/Computational Medicinal Chemistry position March 1.
A tenure track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level for a
computational medicinal chemist is open in the Division of Medicinal Chemistry
and Pharmaceutics. This position involves a joint appointment in the UK
Center for Computational Sciences, directed by Dr. John Connolly, and
includes access to the Center supercomputer. The applicant should be proficie
nt in the use of empirical and ab initio methods for the design of new drug
entities, and should possess expertise in the application of parallel processin
g and quantum chemical programs to macromolecular systems. The person should
have an interest in working with medicinal chemist colleagues in applying
computational methods to solving problems in drug design, molecular dynamics of
proteins and nucleic acids, and biophysical factors in the formulation and
quality control of pharmacologically active proteins. It is expected that
the successful applicant will establish a vigorous research program funded
by extramural support, will participate in teaching in the professional and
graduate degree programs, and will guide graduate and post-doctoral students.
Applicants should possess a Ph.D. in either medicinal chemistry, biophysics,
physical or theoretical chemistry, or a related field. Relevant post-doctoral
experience is a requirement.
