Dear Amber users,

This is to inform you that one post-doctoral position in computational
biophysics is available in the group of Prof. Giulia Palermo at the
University of California Riverside. The appointee will apply a variety of
computational methods, spanning from conventional Molecular Dynamics (MD)
simulations, free energy methods, ab-inito MD and emerging cryo-electron
microscopy processing methods. As well, she/he will have the opportunity to
join ongoing collaborations with leading experimental scientists at UCR and
UC Berkeley. We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow with the following
research background and interests:

1) MD simulations of protein and nucleic acid systems, including but not
limited to protein-protein interactions, DNA/RNA dynamics and ion-protein
interactions (heavy use of Amber & tools!). Experiences with enhanced
sampling and unconventional analysis methods, including but not limited to
dimensionality reduction methods, correlation analysis and Markov state
modeling is preferred.

2) Knowledge of QM/MM methods, based on ab-initio MD approaches (i.e., the
Born-Oppenheimer and Car-Parrinello methods) is preferred but not strictly

3) Applicants should hold a PhD in physics, chemistry, computational
sciences or related fieds. Motivation in learning and developing
unconventional computational approaches during the appointment will be key
for the successful applicant.

The University of California Riverside is a public research University
belonging to the University of California system, located in the vibrant
research area of southern California. The appointee will be employed in the
Department of Bioengineering, receiving competitive salary and benefits, in
agreement with the UC salary scale.

To apply, please email your CV and contact information for 2-3 references
