Postdoc Positions Available

We are looking for two computational chemists experienced in machine learning and peptide molecular dynamics simulations to join us and work on cyclic peptide design or simulation analysis method development. Must have a strong background in machine learning methods and extensive experience in their applications; experience with enhanced sampling methods, GROMACS, and PLUMED a plus.

If you are interested or know someone who might be interested, please send along (or have them send along) a CV and a couple of relevant publications to Prof. Lin at yu-shan.lin@tufts.edu

Graduate Students Interested in the YSL Group

Although some modeling or simulation experience is great, you don’t need to have prior computational chemistry experience to join our group! We will train you from the beginning and get you up to speed. As long as you like peptides and proteins and are not afraid of math, physics, and computers, we will get you there! Feel free to reach out to Prof. Lin and any graduate students in the group. You can find their emails on this page.
