The Department of Chemistry at City University of New York (CUNY)-College of Staten Island seeks a postdoctoral associate with interdisciplinary training to conduct computational-based research within the research group of Dr. Sharon Loverde. The work will be interdisciplinary covering molecular self-assembly, coarse-grained model development, hydrophobic drug solubility in polymers and membranes, and protein-membrane interactions.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, egineering, pharmacology, or a related field. Applicants should have experience with common molecular simulation techniques (molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo) in a Linux environment.
Experience in TCL scripting and familiarity with LAMMPS, NAMD, VMD, HOOMD-blue would be a significant advantage, but is not required.
Additionally, experience working with mixed CPU/GPU or GPU based molecular dynamics codes are a plus, as well as experience with NSF XSEDE computational resources.
City University of New York-College of Staten Island is located in southwest New York City, easily accessible to Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the other boroughs of NYC. Additionally, College of Staten Island is home to a rapidly growing High Performance Computing facility (http://www.csi.cuny.edu/cunyhpc/). The position is available for a one year contract initially, and extendable for up to two years, dependent on mutual agreement. For this position, the successful candidate will be able to communicate effectively in both written and spoken English. Please send a letter describing your research interests and expertise, along with a curriculum vitae in PDF format via email, to Prof. Sharon Loverde: firstname.lastname@example.org https://sites.google.com/site/loverdelaboratory/home
