Apr 7, 2023Description:
The Clemson Computational Biophysics Lab of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Clemson University invites applications for a Post Doctoral Fellow position in the field of computational biophysics research of amyloid aggregation and mitigation.
The Clemson Computational Biophysics Lab, led by Dr. Feng Ding, is a theoretical/computational biophysics group in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Clemson University, College of Science. The research projects include but are not limited to amyloid aggregation and toxicity mitigation, structure and dynamics of multi-domain protein, liquid-liquid phase separation, nano-bio interface and nanomedicine. The lab also develops and maintains the discrete molecular dynamics (DMD) algorithm for efficient modeling of biomolecules and molecular complexes. Many of the research works are published in high profile journals, including PNAS, eLife, Nature Communications, Nano Today, Small, Advanced Science, Advanced Materials, etc. The lab maintains stable funding over the years and has established many long-term experimental collaborators.
A qualified candidate is required to have a PhD degree in physical sciences and have published original research works in reputed scientific journals. We welcome enthusiastic individuals, who are knowledgeable in statistical physics, molecular biophysics and structural bioinformatics, skilled in computational structure biology, and experienced with methodology development and supercomputing, to apply. Parallel programming experience will be a plus.Application Instructions:
For full consideration, applications should be submitted by September 15, 2023. Review will continue until the position is filled.
