Welcome to the YSL Group

We are a computational chemistry group working towards a better understanding of the structures and functions of biomolecules.  

Our group meetings in fall 2021 are Friday at 9 am via Zoom.
For more detail, please email YSL at yu-shan.lin@tufts.edu

Latest news

Postdoc positions available

We are looking for two computational chemists experienced in machine learning and peptide molecular dynamics simulations to join us and work on cyclic peptide design or simulation analysis method development. Must have a strong background in machine learning methods and extensive experience in their applications; experience with enhanced sampling methods, GROMACS, and PLUMED a plus. If you are interested or know someone who might be interested, please send along (or have them send along) a CV and a couple of relevant publications to Prof. Lin at yu-shan.lin@tufts.edu

Info for graduate students interested in the YSL Group

Although some modeling or simulation experience is great, you don't need to have prior computational chemistry experience to join our group! We will train you from the beginning and get you up to speed. As long as you like peptides and proteins and are not afraid of math, physics, and computers, we will get you there! Feel free to reach out to Prof. Lin and any graduate students in the group. You can find their emails here.

Info for undergraduates interested in the YSL Group

For Tufts undergraduate students (freshmen or sophomores) who are interested in the YSL Group, please email (1) your CV, (2) why you are interested in our group, and (3) what you hope to get out of your undergraduate research experience to Prof. Lin at yu-shan.lin@tufts.edu

Here is a website from UCSC that can be helpful when emailing professors regarding research opportunities.
