    Hiring Institution: Rockefeller University
    Apply By: June 19, 2017
    Posted date: October 31, 2013

    Focus will be on developing theoretical models and simulation code to study dynamics of biological macromolecules and complexes. Efforts will build on previous work in modeling transport in the nuclear pore complex (Mincer and Simon, PNAS 2011), with the goal of developing general approaches to modeling and computing the dynamics of complex biological machines. Application of such approaches will be to specific problems of interest in the laboratory, i.e. viral assembly and operation of the proteasome. Rockefeller University is looking for a candidate with modeling experience and proficiency in various programming languages. Expertise in mathematical analysis of complex systems, as well as experience with GPU programming, would be beneficial. Work will include active collaboration with experimentalists in the laboratory: experiment in the lab is guiding theoretical developments and vice versa. The candidate will also interface with mathematicians and computer scientists who are actively optimizing the existing modeling software we have developed. The project is based in the Laboratory of Cellular Biophysics at Rockefeller University (Prof. Sanford Simon) in collaboration with the Department of Anesthesiology at Mount Sinai Medical Center. Interested applicants are invited to submit a cover letter and CV to Dr. Joshua Mincer (
