Position for computational scientist in New York City: seeking PhD with skills in parallel programmi
We are looking for a PhD with interests in computational biology and with exceptional skills in programming in Java, including extensive experience with parallel programming, for the development of computational models and simulation platforms for various biological processes of interest in our laboratory. Of particular interest is a software platform we have developed for simulating transport in the nuclear pore complex (NPC), the channel that selectively mediates all transport between the cytoplasm and nucleus of cells.

Initial work will focus on optimizing and parallelizing existing Java code for running on multi-core CPU and GPU systems to enable significant acceleration and scaling-up of simulation capabilities. In parallel, work will focus on developing simulations of increasing sophistication and predictive capability. The work will involve directly interfacing with scientists in the lab who are doing experiments that test the models.

The project is based in the Laboratory of Cellular Biophysics at Rockefeller University in collaboration with the Department of Anesthesiology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. The Rockefeller University is a premier research institution located in New York City. Interested applicants should contact Dr. Joshua Mincer at jmincer@rockefeller.edu.
