Theoretical biophysics postdoc opening open

Department of Health and Human Services 
National Institutes of Health 
National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute 

One postdoctoral position is immediately available in Jian Liu lab - Theoretical Cellular Physics Section of Biochemistry and Biophysics Center at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD. 

Appointment and salary are dependent on experience. The initial appointment period of this position is one-year.  Appointment beyond one-year is contingent upon mutual agreements between the PI and the postdoc, and could be extended up to 5 years. The project is part of 2017 DDIR innovation awards - the collaborative NIH intramural project that involves close synergy between a theorist (Jian Liu lab, NHLBI), a developmental biologist (Ajay Chitnis Lab, NICHD), and an experimental biophysicist (Kandice Tanner Lab, NCI) at NIH Bethesda main campus. The theoretical problem we are aiming to address is in the general paradigm of cell motility and the feedback between mechanics and signaling pathways.  

Applicants should have PhD in theoretical chemistry, physics, applied math or engineering. Highly motivated candidates with strong background in theoretical physics and numerical simulations, and good communication skills are desirable. For more information, see: https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/research/intramural/researchers/pi/liu-jian Applicants should submit, in a PDF file, a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and arrange three letters of reference to: Dr. Jian Liu at liuj7  @ nih.gov. 

HHS and NIH are Equal Opportunity Employers. Applications from women, minorities and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged.
