We want our employees to bring their whole selves to work and be recognized for the talents, perspectives, and unique life and career experiences they bring. We are a culture of collaboration and scientific freedom, and we believe in the values of diversity, inclusion and belonging to spur innovation.
The Z. Levine Laboratory is excited to be recruiting an experienced computational biophysicist or chemist to work at the interface of cellular health and resiliency. The successful candidate will have access to world-class supercomputing resources and will work alongside a multidisciplinary team of biophysicists, chemists, and biologists to integrate knowledge across a wide range of experiments in cellular aging, senescence, and reprogramming.
This key role will work with the PI to design molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of proteins, small molecules, and lipids to investigate cellular proteostasis. Integration of computational datasets with fluorescence microscopy and spectroscopy will be central to this role.
Familiarity with solution biophysics techniques such as FRET, FRAP, FCS, and liquid chromatography. Knowledge of open-source integrators (e.g. GROMACS) and interfaces (e.g. Maestro) is also preferred, in addition to familiarity with enhanced-sampling techniques such as REMD or metadynamics.
The successful candidate should also be an expert in Linux-based HPC environments and capable of managing diverse computational workflows and datasets. Preference will be given to candidates with experience (or interest) in combining biological data with biophysical
measurements. Those with partial expertise in these techniques who express a compelling interest to learn are also encouraged to apply.
Candidates should hold a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, or a related field, and must demonstrate a strong track record of conspicuous scholarship, mentorship, and scientific publications.
To apply, please include:
1.) A Current CV or Resume
2.) A Representative Publication
3.) A One Page Summary of Past Research Projects
4.) A List of Three Letter Writers (Names and Email Addresses) to Endorse the Candidate
