Graduate student positions are available in the Elber group at the University of Texas at Austin to conduct Molecular Dynamics simulations of long time processes of biological molecules. Examples are protein conformational transitions, transport through membrane, RNA folding, and molecular machines. A few relevant publications are listed at the end of this message. Interest in scientific programming and statistical mechanics are requirements. Background in chemistry and biology is a plus. Interested candidates should contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Students in the Elber's group are from three graduate programs in University of Texas at Austin : Computer Science, Computational Science and Engineering Math, and Chemistry and Biochemistry. Candidate should indicate which program they prefer to apply.
