Postdoctoral Research Associate

About the Opportunity


The SymBioSys Lab is seeking an independent and creative postdoctoral research 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
  • 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 design and oncogenic immunotherapies 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.

Preferred Qualifications:

Candidates should be enthusiastic about working in a fast-paced, interdisciplinary, and multi-project environment. The successful candidate will be able to work both independently and collaboratively. Expertise in any of the following techniques is preferred: computational biophysics, biomolecular structural modeling, all-atom and coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations, multi-scale approaches, enhanced sampling methods, Markov processes and machine learning. Knowledge in the field of glycosciences is an additional asset.
