Postdoctoral Researcher

 The University of Delaware, Department of Physics & Astronomy invites applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher position beginning as early as September 1, 2017. Under the direction of Professor Edward Lyman, the Postdoctoral Researcher will engage in research that advances computational approaches to therapies targeting G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). The salary for this position is provided by the NIH. The goal of the project is to determine the mechanism(s) by which the lipid environment modulates GPCR function. The post-doc hired into the Lyman group will be expected to perform all-atom molecular dynamics simulations of the target protein and develop analysis of protein-membrane interactions; the position is part of collaboration with experimental groups at Tulane Univ., Univ. of Texas Health Science Center, and the Univ. of Southern California. Prior experience in membrane protein simulation is required, a strong background in analysis of membranes using continuum theory is desired. Candidates who will increase diversity in the biomedical research workforce are especially encouraged to apply; see here for more details: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-15-322.html#_Part_2._Full.
