The Open Force Field Initiative is seeking a talented postdoctoral fellow to work on the development of next-generation molecular mechanics force fields, initially focusing on the development of open source tools for generating QM-derived torsion parameters for small organic molecules. The position is supported by the Open Force Field Consortium, which is administered by the NSF-funded Molecular Sciences Software Institute (MolSSI) and funded by an alliance of pharmaceutical and biotech companies aiming to advance the state of force fields for biomolecular simulation and design through an open collaborative effort.

The Open Force Field Consortium (OpenFF, openforcefield.org) and XtalPi, Inc. (xtalpi.com) seeks a Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow to perform cutting-edge research in a unique academic-industrial joint effort.
OpenFF is an academic collaboration (based at UC Irvine / UC Davis / UC San Diego / Univ. Colorado Boulder / Sloan Kettering Institute in New York) that seeks to develop next-generation molecular mechanics force fields and associated parameterization software and data infrastructure.

I’m behind on updates,but there’s a lot of great news recently! Here are some highlights.
Lab news and events:
First year graduate students Danielle Bergazin, Jessica Maat and Noora Siddiqui recently joined the lab. This is in addition to a rotation by Daniel Seith.
We have an undergraduate research position available applying computer tools to help identify candidate drug molecules for experimental testing using docking and screening techniques, working with experimental collaborators. Please use this form if you may be interested. [More…] “Undergraduate research position available”
