We are inviting motivated, talented students to apply a PhD opening fully funded by NIH starting Fall 2020 or Spring 2021. The project is focused on the computational modeling of membrane mechanics for understanding vesicle formation in bacteria. The student will work in a multidisciplinary group with experimental microbiologists and mechanical engineers. Candidates with a background in mechanics and biophysics/biochemistry are encouraged to apply. Strong programming skills in C/C++ and experience with all-atom or coarse-grained molecular dynamics are preferred. Strong publication record and excellent research training will have significant advantages. Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Dr. Xin Yong directly. This position will remain open until filled.

The Soft Matter and Interfacial Phenomena Lab (SaIL) at Binghamton University (http://bingweb.binghamton.edu/~xyong/) focuses on the numerical simulation and mathematical modeling of transport and interfacial phenomena in synthetic and biological soft materials, includes but not limited to colloidal assembly, polymer gels, bacterial membranes, and biofilms. The research findings from the group have been published in highly regarded journals like Nano Lett., ACS Nano, Angew. Chemie Int. Ed., J. Colloid Interface Sci., Macromolecules, J. Biol. Chem., etc.
