I am looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to lead a research
project funded by the National Science Foundation. The project aims to
extend the capability of robotics-inspired algorithms characterize motions
and dynamics of flexible peptides and proteins. The emphasis is on novel
algorithm design, but someone with prior experience in molecular geometry
and protein structure modeling is ideal for the position. The position is
for two years. Based on qualifications and past experience, the candidate
may be offered a research associate position.

Applications are being accepted now and will continue until the position is

The candidate should have:
- Ph.D. in Computer Science
- Prior experience and expertise designing robot motion planning algorithms
- Excellent programming skills in C++
- Prior experience with protein and peptide structure geometry and modeling
- Some familiarity with physics-based molecular modeling packages, such as

Starting date: January 2015
