George Mason University

Department of Computer Science

PI: Amarda Shehu


A research position is available in Shehu's lab for students interested in
obtaining a Ph.D. The project is funded by the National Science Foundation and
aims to extend the capability of robotics-inspired algorithms to characterize
motions and dynamics of flexible peptides and proteins. The position is for
three years. Targeted starting date is January 2015.

*Candidates should have:*

- Experience with stochastic search and optimization techniques

- Experience with graph-based algorithms

- Excellent programming skills in C++

- Some familiarity with protein and peptide structure geometry and
modeling, as well as physics-based molecular modeling packages, such as
AMBER, is desired but not essential

Interested applicants are highly encouraged to contact Prof. Shehu (please
attach CV) before formally applying for admission into the Ph.D. program in
the department of Computer Science at George Mason University.
