We welcome highly motivated graduate/undergraduate students and postdoctoral researchers to join our lab.

Postdoctoral Researchers

We are currently looking for two highly motivated Postdoctoral Researchers to work on biomolecular modeling and computer-aided drug discovery. Projects in the lab involve computer-aided drug discovery, method development for enhanced simulations of biomolecular recognition, and multiscale modeling of cellular signaling processes. In collaboration with leading experimentalists, the new postdoc will have the opportunity to work on unprecedented simulations and drug design of membrane proteins, which are extremely important targets for treating Alzheimer’s disease and human cancers.

Please feel free to submit your application to one of the following postings:

UNC Posting 1

UNC Posting 2

Postdocs are strongly encouraged to apply for fellowships with our support from NIH, NSF, AHA, etc.

Graduate Students

The Miao Lab welcomes prospective talented graduate students in the Department of Pharmacology, Computational Medicine Program, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology, etc.

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students with solid biology/chemistry/physics background, good computational skills, and an interest in computer-aided drug discovery are encouraged to contact the PI to discuss research opportunities in the lab.
