The Structural Biology Department at the University at Buffalo is seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Associate. The project aims are to develop new computational algorithms for characterization and design of novel drug compounds using innovative approaches with solution X-ray scattering. The successful completion of the project will impact many fields from drug discovery and development to basic biological processes.
An excellent opportunity for creative, out-of-the-box thinkers who are self-motivated. Candidates will have the opportunity and support to present their research findings at national and international conferences and in high-impact scientific journals. The positions are for an initial term of two years with possibilities for renewal based on performance and available funding.
