Subject: 20.12.12 Computational PhD studies at Chicago
Applications are invited for several PhD positions in the area of 
theoretical physical chemistry, focused on computational modeling 
of nanoscale systems of physical, chemical, and biological origins 
and applications as new therapeutics, materials, and nanofluidic 
systems. Most research projects have a highly interdisciplinary 
nature, they are often done in close collaborations with top 
experimental groups around the world, and the results are published 
in leading journals. 

Possible research projects are related to: 

1) classical molecular dynamics simulations of bio-related systems, 
such as peptides, dendrimers, and various nanoparticles selectively 
coupled to proteins (SARS-CoV-2), biological membranes, etc. 
2) multiscale modeling of materials based on self-assembled 
nanoparticles, nanocages, peptides, etc.
3) nanofluidic studies, desalination, power generation, molecular 
machines, etc. 
4) electronic structure and transport calculations in nanomaterials, 
energy-related studies,
5) development of novel codes, including machine and deep learning, 
innovative forcefields, etc.

Potential candidates should be motivated and creative, with computational 
skills and possible background in physics, chemistry, and/or biology. 
Preliminary knowledge of computational methods used in the above fields 
is highly welcome. Our graduate students are highly successful in their 
follow up careers, continue with their postdoctoral research at leading 
US institutions and obtain faculty positions or quality industrial jobs.

The research will be conducted in the group of Prof. Petr Kral located 
in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago 
( Chicago is a highly multicultural place 
with a lot of possible activities. The UIC campus is nested within a 
walking distance to downtown.
