Computational Biology/Genomics/Chemogenomics or Pharmacometrics
The University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy is seeking the following candidates in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. The successful applicant will be a member of the Computational Chemical Genomics Screening (CCGS) Center (www.CBLigand.org/CCGS), and will closely interact with the NIH funded Center of Excellence for Computational Drug Abuse Research (www.CDAR.org). The Centers are developing and implementing state-of-the-art computational chemical genomics technologies. The Centers are also centralizing the “Big Data” disease domain specific chemogenomics and computational programs/tools through a GPU-accelerated cloud computing server platform in order to enable efficient information exchange and to advance drug target identification and system polypharmacology. The goal is to accelerate the development of novel therapeutic intervention strategies for drug discovery, design and development.
Postdoc Fellow or Researcher Position Available . We are seeking a creative, self-motivated individual (Postdoc fellow or Programmer) with excellent interpersonal, writing and problem solving skills who is interested in working in a dynamic drug discovery environment. The successful candidate will be responsible for computational, big-data type projects and network algorithm development. Applicant must have strong background in programming, program testing and deployment, and have experience in large data modeling/analysis, database administration, and graphical user interface (GUI) design. Proficiency in at least one object-oriented programming language (e.g., Java, C++ or C#), and scripting language (e.g., Python, PHP) is preferred. Experience with GPU programming and computing, web/mobile application development, big data analysis, network information security, and Web services methodologies are desired. It is also desirable to have experience in developing modeling techniques for similarity searching and docking, in silico ADMET and off-target modeling as well as broad experience in small molecule drug discovery. The applicant must have a PhD or MS degree or equivalent, and strong communication and writing skills.
