Postdoctoral Research Associate - Computational Biophysics

About the Opportunity

The SymBioSys Lab ( is seeking an independent and creative
postdoctoral associate to support research on computational modeling of complex
biomolecular systems in the broad field of glycoprotein-based therapeutic design. The
available position is in the Chemical Engineering Department of Northeastern University
(Boston Campus). Our laboratory values diversity and expects all lab members to foster
a safe, inclusive and welcoming environment. The duties and responsibilities for this
position may include, but are not limited to:
  • Set up and run computational models and simulations of biomolecular systems
  • Design and implement research ideas independently and in association with the
    supervisor and other collaborators
  • Analyze large-scale data utilizing robust statistical methods and machine learning
  • Provide meticulous documentation, code development, maintenance, and
    summarization of results
  • Develop and write reports, publications, and grants
  • Attend and participate in research meetings and seminars
  • Participate in career development training workshops/sessions and networking
    opportunities for research and mentoring
  • Guide and mentor graduate or undergraduate students, including participation in
    training to improve these skills as needed
  • Foster a safe, inclusive, and collaborative environment.
    It is expected that the postdoctoral associate will develop and execute a career
    development plan in coordination with the PI.
    About our lab: The overarching goal in our laboratory is to develop novel computer-driven
    solutions to glycoprotein-based biomedical challenges. Two independent thrusts
    targeting viral vaccine engineering and biomaterial design form the current research
    focus. This is a cross-disciplinary group at the interface of Chemical Engineering,
    Biochemistry, Physics and Computer Science. All research is expected to occur in
    association with other experimental collaborators (both intra- and extramural).


    Must have a Ph.D. or equivalent; be able to undertake substantially
    full-time research or scholarship; work under the supervision of a
    senior scholar. This position requires excellent communication skills,
    both interpersonal and scientific, oral, and written. All candidates
    should provide a detailed CV, research statement and contact
    information of three or more academic/professional references.
