Interested in improving predictive modeling of biomolecular interactions? We seek a postdoc who will work on binding free energy methods and applications (likely including our BLUES method for enhanced sampling of ligand binding modes), as well as with the Open Force Field Initiative (OpenFF, openforcefield.org) on testing and improving biomolecular force fields, though this is not an OpenFF position. The candidate may also 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.
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 will start as soon as a suitable candidate can be found, but applications should be received before mid-December, 2019.
