    Responsibilities

    The incumbent will develop new computer modeling approaches to yield precise all-atom representations of biomolecular structures and the evolution of these structures over time; experimentally derive well-refined solution state experimental data on model systems to use in computational model development, including data from small- and wide-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS and WAXS), solution neutron scattering (SANS), NMR, cryoEM and other structural biology and biophysical methods.  S/he will use well-defined experimental datasets to tune molecular mechanics force fields to better reproduce the conformational structure and dynamics of biomolecules in their native environment; and apply these methods to peptide, protein and nucleic acid molecules used as platforms for biopharmaceuticals.
