Postdoc position available By: Rafael Najmanovich October 31 2011
The Najmanovich Research Group (NRG) is looking for a postdoc for a virtual screening project to model and inhibit essential bacterial RNA targets. This is a well funded project involving my group, a medicinal chemistry group, an RNA group and a microbiology group. This project has considerable potential for patents.
The NRG focuses on molecular recognition developing exciting tools to understand protein function from structure and apply these in virtual high throughput screening combining systems biology, bioinformatics, chemoinformatics and computational biology.
Our group has a large dedicated computational lab as well as an experimental lab. We have access to the Mammouth supercomputer at the Université de Sherbrooke, our own dedicated 384-core Linux farm as well as a powerful (and ever growing) Grid computing platform to perform docking simulations.
Our group currently comprises 6 graduate students and 2 (experimental) research assistants. We are located at the Faculté de Médecine of the Université de Sherbrooke. Sherbrooke is located in the province of Québec, Canada, approximately 1.5h (by car) east of Montreal and 3.5h north of Boston. Sherbrooke is a mostly Francophone environment but one in which one can get along without any problems in English. Sherbrooke is an green city with 200,000 people with 2 universities and 3 colleges in close proximity several nature reserves and ski resorts.
