Postdoctoral Position Available in Computational Biophysics/Biology
We are looking to fill one Postdoctoral position. Successful candidate will work on investigating pore formation by Alzheimer's disease-linked amyloid beta proteins and the calcium hypothesis of Alzheimer's disease using computational modeling driven by fluorescence microscopic data of calcium signals at different spatiotemporal scales.
Required qualifications: (i) PhD in Computational Biophysics/Biology or related field; (ii) strong research accomplishments in computational biology/biophysics and a demonstrated record of research productivity; (iii) excellent computer programming skills. A working knowledge of C++ and/or Java is a plus. Applicants should e-mail curriculum vitae, list of publications, and contact information for three references to Ghanim Ullah at

Computational Biophysics Group in the Department of Physics at USF uses theoretical and computational techniques to gain deep insights into the function and dysfunction of biological systems. Areas of particular ineterst include:

  • Neuronal disorders
  • Markov chain models
  • Calcium dynamics
  • Cell signaling pathways
  • Application of control theory to biology

    In the news:
    Our paper on the unification of epileptic seizures and migrain, published in Journal of Neuroscience was highlighted by several news sites including Sciencedaily, Science World Report, NSF, Neuroscience News, MedicalExpress, and Toronto Telegraph
