The Viral Information Institute has an open postdoctoral fellowship in computational biophysics funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to investigate the origin of viruses. The research is at the interface of physical virology, viral ecology, and viral evolution, and it will combine geometrical modeling, molecular simulations, and bioinformatics. The ideal candidate would have experience modeling biological systems and a good foundation in mathematics and physics. In addition, experience in molecular dynamics would be a plus. The fellowship is funded for up to three years.
The postdoctoral fellow will join an interdisciplinary group with four principal investigators: Forest Rohwer, Rob Edwards, Anca Segall, and Antoni Luque. In addition, the postdoctoral fellow will collaborate with a diverse group of postdocs, graduate students, and undergraduate students as part of the Viral Information Institute at San Diego State University.
Please, email Antoni Luque at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any additional information. To apply to the fellowship, send an email with the subject “GBMF postdoc candidate” and include a letter of motivation, CV, and three contact references.
The announcement is available online at this link, which will reflect any updates.
