Subject: 23.03.03 PhD positions in AI for Chemistry and Drug Discovery at uOttawa starting in Winter 2024
Several positions for grad students are available in our lab 
( at the University of Ottawa. 
The Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences at the 
University of Ottawa is one of the top five in Canada and we 
provide competitive salaries and opportunities to grow as 
scientist. We are located in beautiful Ottawa, Canada's capital, 
which is consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities in
the world.

Potential projects revolve around developing advanced
AI methods for structure-based drug discovery, and applying those
for the discovery of new antibacterial and anticancer drug 
candidates. The successful candidates will work closely with our
experimental collaborators at uOttawa and abroad to accelerate 
the development of preclinical candidates through cycles of 
in-silico predictions and experimental validation. There will 
be opportunities to spend a research period in collaborating 
institutions abroad during the programs. For international 
candidates, priority will be given to students interested in 
pursuing a Ph.D., however exceptional candidates will be 
considered for the M.Sc. program. The ideal candidates will 
have a solid background in chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics 
or related disciplines and good knowledge of Python programming. 
Although not necessary, machine learning experience will be 
considered as a bonus. If you see yourself as a motivated young 
researcher who wants to contribute to a better world with 
computer-aided drug discovery, contact us at
for more information. 

In our group, we are deeply committed to build an equal opportunity 
environment without regard to age, ancestry, colour, race, citizenship,
ethnic origin, place of origin, creed, disability, family status, 
marital status (including single status), gender identity, gender 
expression, record of offences, sex (including pregnancy and breastfeeding),
or sexual orientation. We particularly encourage applications from four 
designated groups that have traditionally been disadvantaged in
employment: women, visible minorities, indigenous peoples and 
persons with disabilities.
