A postdoctoral position with a primary focus on the genome organization is available immediately in the Shenoy Research Group at the University of Pennsylvania. We are looking for a strongly motivated candidate to work on an NIH supported project on the impact of nuclear deformations on chromatin organization and gene transcription using molecular dynamics simulations and bioinformatics.
The ideal candidate will have expertise in molecular dynamics/Monte Carlo simulations and the ability to implement new algorithms. A background in polymer physics and analyzing bioinformatics data will be considered as an advantage. This individual will have the opportunity to be directly involved in complimentary experimental investigations in the medical school at UPenn and our collaborators elsewhere.
