The Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group, NIH Center for
Macromolecular Modeling and Bioinformatics, is please to announce:

"In-Residence Training at the Theoretical & Computational Biophysics
Group", July 16-27, 2012, at the Beckman Institute in Urbana, Illinois.

The Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group (TCBG) announces an
'in-residence' workshop that invites 5-7 scientists to the home of the
TCBG for advanced training and consultation with an ongoing molecular
dynamics study carried out by the participants. The in-residence
training program provides an opportunity for experimentalists and
theorists who are not experts in modeling, to initiate a project that
requires advanced modeling. During their two-week stay, participants
will be provided with office space, use of computing facilities at the
TCBG, and access to the expertise of TCBG group members. The goal of the
in-residence workshop is to facilitate launch and refinement of
participant modeling projects.

The in-residence training program is designed for academic (graduate
students, postdocs, faculty), corporate, government, or other
researchers who seek to extend their research area to include
computational and theoretical expertise in molecular modeling.
Applicants should provide a concise description of the modeling project
they envision for study during the in-residence program. To allow for
advanced work, applicants should be proficient in use of the VMD and
NAMD software programs, and to have completed basic tutorials for
those programs as can be found here. Furthermore, applicants are
required to bring a laptop to facilitate after-hours work, and must stay
for the entire period of the program.

The in-residence program provides free housing at a campus dormitory
housing unit for the duration of the workshop. Participants must arrange
and pay for their own transportation. Application deadline is June 24,
2012 for full consideration. Selection and notification of participants
ongoing through June 28, 2012. A non-refundable $50 registration fee is
due from those selected to attend by July 13, 2012. In-residence
training starts July 16, 2012, and continues through July 27, 2012.
