Hi all,

sorry for the off-topic posting, but I have an opening for a postdoc
position involving development of methods in Amber.

The successful candidate will work on development of free energy calculation
methods related to protein-ligand binding that are currently underway in the
Simmerling lab. The candidate needs to be able to carry out scientific
programming and writing manuscripts. Experience with Amber usage and
programming is desirable, as is experience with high performance
computing. The project is funded by a pharmaceutical company and would
involve significant collaboration with researchers at the company, including
joint project meetings and access to proprietary corporate data sets for use
in validating the simulation methods. Although this is an industry
collaboration, publications are expected. This is an excellent opportunity
to make valuable contacts in the pharma industry.

The research environment is productive and highly collaborative; the
Simmerling lab is part of the new Laufer Center for Physical and
Quantitative Biology (www.laufercenter.org), with Prof. Ken Dill recently
hired as director and 4 other labs in the Center also doing atomic-level MD
simulations. There are also ample opportunities for training and
collaboration, with both computational and experimental researchers, and the
postdoc would be encouraged to develop independent projects. The lab has
access to significant computational resources through XSEDE (formerly
Teragrid), as well as a large local cluster and the IBM Blue Gene own by
Stony Brook and located at Brookhaven National Lab.The postdoc would need to
start this calendar year.

Please submit CV, cover letter and references to Carlos Simmerling by email
