OFFER DESCRIPTION

[Laboratory]
Theoretical Molecular Science Laboratory,
RIKEN Cluster for Pioneering Research
(Laboratory head: Yuji Sugita, Chief Scientist)

[Research Field]
In this laboratory, we integrate theoretical and computational methods developed in theoretical chemistry and computational biophysics to understand the relationship between molecular structures and functions in various chemical and biological systems. We develop multi-scale simulation methods combining atomistic molecular dynamics (MD) with coarse-grained MD, or introducing the quantum effects using hybrid QM/MM calculations. In addition, we aim to perform data-driven simulations and use of informatics or machine learning for the prediction of molecular functions and designs.
