Subject: 19.09.05 PhD position in Computational Chemistry and Biochemistry in the Department of Chemistry at Michigan Technological University
A position for a PhD Student in Computational Chemistry and Biochemistry is available in the group of Dr. Christo Z. Christov in the Department of Chemistry at Michigan Technological University, Houghton, MI. 

The research studies will involve intensive learning and gaining practical skills in Computational Chemistry and Biochemistry and will be focused on 
understanding reaction mechanisms and dynamics of transition metal-containing enzymes in reference to experimental 
structural, spectroscopic and biochemical studies. 

The project will involve learning and applying of Combined Quantum Mechanical and Molecular Mechanics (QM/MM) methods, Molecular Dynamics (MD) studies 
and Electronic Structure Methods. The main focus of the studies will be on transition metal-containing enzymes involved in epigenetic regulation 
(histone- and DNA-demethylases) but also on other enzymes non-heme iron enzymes. 
The research will likely involve intensive collaborations with other research groups at Michigan Tech, USA and EU Universities. 

The ideal applicants should demonstrate the following qualifications, experience and interests:  
-	BSc in Chemistry, Biochemistry or similar discipline
-	Some background and/or strong motivation for research in computational chemistry, biomolecular modelling and drug design with focus on enzyme mechanisms 
and dynamics 
-	Some experience and/or strong interest for computational work, Linux, shell scripting

The position will be funded by the Department of Chemistry through allocations from the Graduate School as Graduate Teaching Assistants for up to 5 years 
with satisfactory progress to degree. Teaching undergraduate students is expected. The applicants should have at least a BSc degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry 
or similar discipline.
For a preliminary assessment, interested applicants should contact Dr. Christov by e-mail at christov*|*mtu.edu 
along with a current CV and a brief description of research interests and experience.  For official consideration, 
all applications for admittance into graduate school must be submitted through the universitys online process.
