Postdoctoral Researcher Position in Multiscale Modeling of Biological Systems Applications are invited for an interdisciplinary postdoctoral research position in Multiscale Modeling of Biological Systems in the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). The position involves the development and application of computational methods for the modeling of the biological systems across different spatial and temporal scales. Research will be conducted in the research group of Yuhua Song (http://www.eng.uab.edu/yhsong) in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Highly motivated candidates with strong research background in theoretical and computational biophysics/biochemistry/biomechanics or related fields and with interests in the structure and function of biological membranes and membrane proteins, ligand-receptor interactions, protein structure and function, constitutive equation, and methodology developments are especially encouraged to apply. Expereience in scientific programming, computational modeling experience in atomistic simulation techniques (such as Molecular Dynamics, Quantum Mechanics) and continuum model (such as Finite Element Method), and familiarity with UNIX/Linux operating system are highly desirable. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the research, applications from all areas of computational science/engineering will be considered. However, the applicants for a postdoctoral position must have earned a doctoral degree or equivalent degree. UAB is a major research university and academic health center that discovers, teaches and applies knowledge for the intellectual, cultural, social and economic benefit of Birmingham, the state and the nation. The UAB faculty is renowned for its excellence in interdisciplinary research programs. The BME department has developed a strong record of extramurally funded interdisciplinary research, and has extensive collaboration with colleagues in Dentistry, Engineering, Medicine, and Natural Sciences & Mathematics. The candidates have opportunities to accept education and training in multi- & interdisciplinary research environments, and have opportunities to interact with researchers in School of Engineering, School of Medicine and School of Dentistry at The University of Alabama at Birmingham. Interested applicants should send application materials by email to yhsong@uab.edu. The application materials should include: a current CV with names and contact information of at leat three references and a brief statement of career goal, research background and interests.
