Postdoract fellowship in molecular simulations, machine learning, and statistical mechanics

Posted 1 year ago

We are looking for a highly motivated and talented postdoctoral candidate with interests in molecular simulations, machine learning, and statistical mechanics for research opportunities in:

  • Development of data-driven schemes for the discovery of slow degrees of freedom
  • Molecular simulations of complex mechanisms in large biological objects
  • Computational modeling of transition pathways in high-dimensional systems

Prior experience in computer programming, machine learning algorithms, and molecular simulations of biological systems is highly desirable, but not necessary. A strong background in physical sciences is required.
