Subject: 19.02.04 PhD/MSc positions, Centre for Molecular Simulation, University of Calgary, Canada
A two graduate student positions are available IMMEDIATELY in the biomolecular simulation groups of Professors Sergei Noskov and Dennis R. Salahub at the Center of Molecular Modeling, University of Calgary. Both are positions are in the general area of theoretical quantum biology and applications to transport phenomena. More specifically trainees will join a collaborative project aimed at developing enhanced QM/MM free energy simulation techniques, approaches to reveal complex free energy surfaces from molecular or quantum simulations with approaches ranging from rapidly emerging chemoinformatics/machine learning to Markov-nets and then application to studies of selective ion transport across biological membranes. The project will involve methodology development in the areas spanning from participation in the multi-institutional effort on the protein/ion polarizable force-fields, improvements of sampling algorithms and methods to reveal both energetics/kinetics of enzymatic reactions to applications that stretch the capabilities of current methodology (ion channels, membrane transporters and metalloenzymes). The candidates for graduate studies should have excellent educational record in the areas of chemical physics, biophysics, biochemistry, physical chemistry, chemical physics or molecular physics to name a few areas of specialization. All of the admitted students will be guaranteed scholarship and can choose Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biophysical Chemistry or Structural Biology as areas of specialization via either Department of Biological Sciences or Chemistry. Experience with scientific programming e.g. coding/scripting (python, perl, c++ or fortran-90) is desired, but not required. The University of Calgary is well-recognized national and international leader in computational biosciences and offers a unique access to collaborative environment and formidable computational resources. The Centre for Molecular Simulations seeks to understand fundamental biological phenomena in the broad areas of molecular recognition, protein-ligand interactions, target-oriented drug design, membrane biophysics and mechanism of cell transport. The Center for Molecular Simulation (http://science.ucalgary.ca/molsim) combines seveb groups in the departments of Chemistry and Biological Sciences with affiliates in the Faculty of Medicine working in areas including catalysis, energy, materials, and biological projects. CMS a unique collaborative environment and formidable computational resources both dedicated locally at the University of Calgary and through national platforms such as Compute Canada.
To apply for PhD/M.Sc. positions please submit a CV detailing your academic training, achivements, etc. as well as a brief cover letter explaining interest in and fit for the position, and contact information for three references to Professor Noskov (snoskov%ucalgary.ca) or Professor Salahub (salahub%ucalgary.ca) directly.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
