PhD positions in Noskov lab/Calgary/Centre for Molecular Simulation

par Secretaire - 18 octobre 2016

I will have 1-2 PhD positions in my laboratory at the Centre for Molecular Simulations (CMS), University of Calgary with guaranteed funding for next 4 years and opportunities to apply for individual scholarships/awards. The CMS is one of the world’s leading research centers in the area of multi-scale simulations combining theory development and applications from electrons to cellular function. The project is focused on the development of next-generation polarizable force fields for simulations of metalloproteins (JPC-2015, JCTC-2015 and PNAS-2016) and cutting-edge applications to studies of solute transport across biological and artificial membranes in collaboration with world leaders in structural biology of membrane proteins, Professor Hans Vogel (UCalgary Biological Sciences), leaders of the biological nanopores field (Bezrukov lab, Program in Physical Biology, NIH) and newly established Biological Neutron Diffraction facility at National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST-USA) led by David Hoggerheide.

Requirements : Ph.D. program applicants must hold a MSc or BS in Chemistry or Physics with specialization in Molecular Physics, Physical Chemistry, Biophysical Chemistry, Computational Material Science, or related subject, and a TOEFL certificate with a minimum score of 91(iBT) or equivalent. The minimal GPA requirements imposed by Biochemistry program is 3.4 on 4 point scale (85 % or 4.2 in 5 points GPA system). Relevant training in condensed matter physics/chemistry, statistical mechanics and quantum chemistry (some familiarity with it) and desire to expand training in computational methods are all preferred.

Inquiries/Application : Any additional information can be obtained by contacting directly Professor Sergei Noskov ( Any application should enclose a C.V., a one page justification of your interest and the e-mail addresses of at least two references.

Funding A stipend of $24,000 CAD will be provided to the successful candidate(s). This will consists of research assistantship and teaching assistantship (1 course a year). Conference travel allowance will depend on the particular project and funding situation.

Location : Calgary, the city of about one million, is pleasantly situated at the edge of the Canadian Rockies with only a one-hour drive to Banff National park. The city is one of the major transportation hubs in Canada with large international airport. The area has some of the best skiing, hiking and white-water rafting in the world. The University of Calgary is among Canada’s leading research universities with particular strengths in Natural and BioMedical sciences. The Department of Biological Sciences is a very active and successful research and teaching department with excellence in the field of computational and structural biology, with more than 150 graduate students and postdocs all around the globe.
