Subject: 21.07.14 Positions for PhD Students in Computational Chemistry and Biochemistry in the Department of Chemistry at Michigan Technological University
Two Positions for PhD Students in Computational Chemistry and Biochemistry are available in the group of Dr. Christo Z. Christov in the Department of Chemistry at Michigan Technological University, Houghton, MI. The two positions are 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. International applicants should demonstrate English proficiency via TOEFL or IELTS tests scores. More details about the application procedures can be found at: http://www.mtu.edu/chemistry/graduate/program/. More information about Dr. Christov's research can be found at: https://chem.sites.mtu.edu/christov/. The research studies will involve intensive learning and gaining practical skills in Computational Chemistry/Biochemistry, High Performance Computing, Computer-Aided Drug Design, Bioinorganic Chemistry and some Programming. The research topics will be focused on understanding enzyme reaction mechanisms, dynamics, spectroscopy and inhibition and utilizing this knowledge for design of enzyme inhibitors as novel more effective drug candidates. The studies will involve learning and applying of Multilevel Molecular Modelling Methods such as 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). The individual interests and attitudes of the students will be considered in designing the research studies. Depending on the applicants interests some computational method development could be included. 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 - Some experience and/or strong interest for computational work, Linux, shell scripting, programming Michigan Technological University is an Equal Opportunity Educational Institution/ Equal Opportunity Employer, which includes providing equal opportunity for protected veterans and individuals with disabilities.
The start date should be January 2022. The interested applicants should contact Dr. Christov by e-mail on christov###mtu.edu and send a current CV with a brief description of research interests and experience.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
