1. CCBM Computational Postdoc: Opportunity to work in my group and in collaboration with multiple CCBM faculty on computational modeling of biological systems broadly defined. Full details and to apply: https://aprecruit.ucmerced.edu/JPF01292
2. Coronavirus consortium postdocs: Join our multi-campus consortium researching the assembly process of coronaviruses. This is for 1-2 positions based in UC Riverside working with Roya Zandi (UCR) and myself.
We invite applications for two postdoc positions in theoretical and computational soft condensed matter and biophysics in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at UC Riverside working with Professor Roya Zandi. As part of the Zandi group, the candidate will have the opportunity to work collaboratively on a variety of projects including elasticity theory of two-dimensional surfaces, virus assembly and formation, conformations of RNA and other polyelectrolytes in confined regions, motor-driven intracellular transport, heterogeneous active matter and fluctuation-induced (Casimir) forces in various systems.
One of the positions is part of a multidisciplinary, multi-campus effort connected to the established UC Consortium on Coronavirus Research. The primary goal of the group is to elucidate the mechanisms of the assembly of coronaviruses using analytical theory and computer simulation. The postdoc will work closely with Roya Zandi at UC Riverside in collaboration with Ajay Gopinathan (UC Merced) and Patrice Koehl (UC Davis). Both postdocs will also work closely with the experimentalists on three campuses to develop theory and numerical simulation for the design, analysis, and interpretation of relevant experiments. The position comes with multiple opportunities for professional development and meaningful mentorship, outreach and community engagement.
Review of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled.
To apply, candidates should send their application materials to firstname.lastname@example.org, including a CV, a list of publications, and contact information of three references. Women and under-represented minorities are encouraged to apply.
