Post-doctoral position offered in:

Computational investigation of protein-ligand interactions

A post-doctoral position is available, starting April 1-st 2001, to
investigate protein-ligand interactions using statistical mechanics
simulations on massively parallel architectures. The project will
involve some coding in an existing molecular dynamics program, and
apply free energy methodology to rank the affinities of a series of
pharmacologically active ligands to a protein of interest. Results
will be confronted to micro-calorimetry experiments performed by a
collaborating group.

Funding of this project is provided by a leading pharmaceutical com-

Applicants should have a strong background in statistical mechanics,
specifically free energy methodologies, and be familiar with perfor-
mance programming on massively parallel machines.
