now hiring (08/20/19)

LRG@YSM is currently looking to recruit a combination of computational and experimental researchers, at all ranks, for the Fall '19 and Spring '20 semesters. Roles would include deducing peptide and protein kinetics, structures, and thermodynamics through the integration of solution biophysics techniques (NMR, fluorescence spectroscopy, etc.) with molecular dynamics simulations (classical, enhanced sampling, thermodynamic integration, free energy perturbation, etc.). Particular systems of interest include intrinsically disordered protein (IDP) domains and their association with degenerative amyloid diseases such as Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease, and Type II Diabetes. Interested candidates should send their CV and a brief statement describing their past research and future goals to:


LRG@YSM has begun operating at Yale University! This exciting time of innovation and growth will see the arrival of state-of-the-art computational and experimental equipment at both the Yale YCRC and in the Bass Center. This space is located on Science Hill next to the brand new Yale Science Building, Sterling Hall of Chemistry, Sloan Hall of Physics, and the Kline Biology Tower.
