Subject: 16.05.26 Open PhD positions in Computational Materials and Biophysical Chemistry (starting Jan 2017) at the University of Texas at El Paso
Applications are invited for PhD studies (deadline July 1) focused on 
theoretical and computational modeling of biomolecular complexes and 
novel materials nanosystems, operated by chemical, physical and biological
principles. The available research projects involve molecular dynamics 
simulations of protein-nucleic acid complexes and hybrid materials on 
bio-nano interface. The candidates will learn how to use a variety of 
theoretical and computational methodologies, including classical 
molecular dynamics simulations and quantum calculations, free energy 
calculation methods, new parameterization schemes and enhanced sampling 
techniques. They will be able to write their own codes in various 
programming languages, and acquire many other skills. We are looking for 
creative and motivated individuals with outstanding work ethics, and 
passion for scientific discovery. While background in chemistry, physics 
or biology, and preliminary knowledge of theoretical methods used in 
these fields is welcome, motivation and effort are absolutely required. 

The research will be conducted in the group of Prof. Lela Vukovic in 
the Chemistry Department at the University of Texas at El Paso 
(utminers.utep.edu/lvukovic/index.html). Collaboration with other 
experimental and theoretical groups is essential in our research. 
The University of Texas at El Paso is an emerging national research 
university, with a new chemistry building and a growing campus. El 
Paso is a large city with many opportunities for cultural, sports and 
outdoors events.

Interested candidates should e-mail (as soon as possible) their CV 
to: Lvukovic[-]utep.edu The applicants should also submit general GRE 
scores, and foreign applicants are requires to provide IELTS/TOEFL 
scores. The cumulative GPA of the applicant should be at least 3.4 
on a 4.0 scale.
