Subject: 18.08.27 Post Doc in Computational Biophysics at the University of Cincinnati
The Department of Chemistry and Professor Ruxandra Dima have a 
Post Doctoral Fellow position available at the University of Cincinnati, 
starting in January, 2019.

Our research is focused on modeling of biological macromolecules using 
a combination of molecular dynamics, coarse-grained simulations, and 
bioinformatics. The main focus is on the computational modeling of 
biological macromolecules dynamics in order to gain insight into the 
mechanisms of assembly and disassembly of large protein fibers that 
perform various mechanical functions across biological systems and 
it is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation.

We are looking for a scientist who has a PhD in Computational Biophysics
or a closely related discipline. In addition, we expect a solid chemical
or biophysical background, a good grasp of statistics and data analysis
techniques. Excellent writing and communication skills are also desired. 
Experience with programming and scripting languages (C/C++/CUDA, Python) 
and with the UNIX/Linux operating system will be a significant advantage. 
Familiarity with the application of classical molecular dynamics with 
explicit and implicit solvent and related force fields to the study of 
complex biomolecular systems using various molecular modeling packages 
Gromacs, NAMD etc.), as well as a good knowledge of statistical mechanics 
are also welcome for this position.

The position is available for a one year appointment, with a possible 
extension for a second year upon mutual agreement, satisfactory performance 
and availability of funds. The position is immediately available and applications 
will be considered until the position is filled.

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS:  PhD in Computational Biophysics or a closely 
related discipline

Qualified and interested candidates must complete our online application 
at (Search requisition #32524).  In addition to the 
online application, candidates should use our additional documents function
