Postdocs

The Smith lab is currently seeking a postdoc to develop computational methods for ensemble refinement of protein structures using NOE data. The work will involve implementing C++ code that utilizes the Kinetic Ensemble approach to restrain atomic coordinates to best fit back-calculated NOE peak volumes or cross relaxation rates. Interested candidates should contact Colin Smith.

Prospective postdocs interested in working on other projects are encouraged to apply for their own funding. Please contact Colin Smith for further information and help formulating a proposal. Researchers currently located in Germany are eligible to apply for a Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship, as Colin Smith is a former fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

Graduate Students

Students interested in doing PhD research in the Smith Lab should apply to either the Chemistry or Molecular Biology and Biochemistry graduate programs at Wesleyan University.

Undergraduate Students

Students wishing to do undergraduate research in the Smith Lab are encouraged to attend lab meetings and talk to current members of the lab to find out more. People with interest in computational research and methods development are especially encouraged to join.
