The Department of Medicinal Chemistry and the Center for Natural Products, Drug Discovery and Development (CNPD3) at the University of Florida (https://cnpd3.pharmacy.ufl.edu) invite applications for one postdoctoral scholar position in computational chemistry and biochemistry.
Besides the strength in traditional physics-based molecular simulation, the University of Florida aims to become a strong “AI” University with initiatives to build AI excellence in multiple research fronts; drug design and discovery is one of them. With donations from NVIDIA, UF’s HiPerGator AI is the most powerful Artificial Intelligence computer in higher education. In addition, HiPerGator 3 remains an excellent workhorse.
PhD (or equivalent international degree) in Computational Chemistry, Computational Physics, Computer Science, Biological Physics, Biophysics, Physical Chemistry or related disciplines required by the appointment start date.
- Expertise in molecular dynamics simulation and free energy calculation. Experience and expertise in quantum chemistry, machine learning and deep learning are big plus. Experience in structure-based drug design is a plus. Being able to keep pace in a dynamic research environment. Independent in literature search and literature update. Capability of writing manuscripts.
The University of Florida, College of Pharmacy, strives to stimulate a culture that promotes diversity and inclusion within an exceptional community of students, faculty and staff.
