Are you ready to explore your future with NIST?
Your application package may be shared with other selecting officials at NIST with opportunities like the one you are applying to. Additional selections may be made through this vacancy.
This notice is issued under direct-hire authority to recruit new talent to occupations for which NIST has a severe shortage of candidates.
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.
Occasional travel - Occasional travel to attend scientific meetings and conference.
