Soft Matter Science - Position Openings
Postdoctoral Fellows – Molecular Modeling (04/2016; two immediate openings)
IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center located in Yorktown Heights, NY expects to hire TWO Postdoctoral Fellows in the Soft Matter Science Dept, Life Science & Healthcare Division. The position will involve contributing to ongoing research program in protein science and biomolecular modeling. We are interested in candidates with deep theoretical and technical knowledge in relevant aspects of computational biology and bioinformatics, including but not limited to novel computational algorithms and methods, large scale molecular dynamics simulations, free energy perturbation, parallel programming, multiscale modeling, and structural interpretation, in particular disordered protein modeling. Outstanding communication skills, ability to interact with a technically diverse team and excellent publication record are critical.
The Soft Matter Science Group at IBM Research aims to address important questions and problems in soft matter, structural biology, and biomolecular dynamics, using high performance computing (HPC), such as IBM Blue Gene supercomputers. It pursues a broad but well grounded approach to leverage and expand upon our existing techniques for scientific and technological advancement. More information about the group can be found here.
