Postdoc in Protein Biophysics, Modeling, and Simulation

University of New Hampshire (UNH)


Posted: 19-Nov-23

Location: Durham, New Hampshire

Wage: Open



Inside Quantity: PF0721FY23

Postdoctoral positions can be found within the laboratory of Dr. Harish Vashisth in Division of Chemical Engineering on the College of New Hampshire (UNH), Durham, NH. The positions are inside the broad space of protein biophysics, structural modeling, and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, the place the dynamics and interactions in protein-based programs are to be explored. The postdoctoral researcher(s) shall be supplied entry to state-of-the-art supercomputing amenities with superior GPU and information storage capabilities. Moreover, alternatives shall be obtainable for collaboration with experimental teams concerned in NMR spectroscopy, chemical cross-linking/mass-spectrometry, and mutagenesis research. Furthermore, structured mentoring {and professional} improvement alternatives (attending workshops & conferences) and interactions with interdisciplinary researchers by way of an NIH-funded Middle of Built-in Biomedical and Bioengineering Analysis (CIBBR) may also be supplied. The appointments are initially for one 12 months with the potential for renewal in subsequent years pending obtainable funding, and conditional on the passable progress as nicely productiveness of the postdoctoral researcher(s). Typical tasks within the laboratory are associated to improvement of novel MD simulation methodologies and their functions to protein dynamics and interactions, typically focused at creating therapeutic approaches.

A perfect candidate ought to maintain a Ph.D. in chemical engineering, chemistry, biochemistry, structural biology, biophysics, or in a associated interdisciplinary discipline. The candidate ought to have a robust background and coaching in idea and computational science associated to molecular biophysics and biomolecular modeling, and ideally ought to have vital prior analysis expertise and publications in simulations of protein/ligand interactions in addition to in utilization of MD simulation software program (e.g., NAMD, AMBER, GROMACS, and so on.). Moreover, prior expertise in homology modeling and structural refinement utilizing constraints from experiments (NMR, cross-linking/mass-spectrometry, and so on.) shall be thought of favorably. The perfect candidate is predicted to work nicely independently but in addition combine nicely in a collaborative setting with experimental teams, and may have glorious interpersonal, written, and oral abilities wanted to successfully converse with researchers from numerous backgrounds.
