Computational investigation of protein-ligand interactions

A post-doctoral position is available, starting April 2001, to study
protein-ligand interactions, using statistical mechanics simulations
on massively parallel architectures.

This project involves some programming in an existing molecular dy-
namics code and apply free energy methodology to rank the affinities
of a series of pharmacologically active ligands to a protein of in-
terest. 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.
