Interested in developing and applying new methods relating to binding free energy calculations, and in advancing predictive modeling relating to pharmaceutical drug discovery? I seek a postdoctoral candidate who will focus on methods for and applications of free energy calculations and structure-based design methods in early stage drug discovery projects. Additionally, the candidate will likely get involved with the SAMPL series of blind challenges, helping to drive progress in the field by facilitating comparisons of the latest methods on cutting-edge datasets in blind challenges we help design. Work may also interface with that of the Open Force Field Initiative (openforcefield.org), though this is not an OpenFF position.
The ideal candidate will have a strong background in scientific software development, including with Python, experience with molecular dynamics simulations and method development (free energy calculations would be an additional plus!) and significant experience working as part of a team.
To apply, please send a cover letter explaining your interest in the position and your relevant background, along with a CV which also contains contact information for at least three references to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This position is expected to start in late summer or early Fall 2019, and applications will be reviewed as received but should be received before June 1.
