Subject: 18.08.30 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 materials, medicines, catalysts, etc. 
Most research projects have a highly interdisciplinary nature and 
are done in close collaborations with top experimental groups around 
the world. The collaborative studies are often published in leading 
journals. 

Possible research projects are related to: 1) classical and quantum 
molecular dynamics simulations of bio-related systems, such as 
nanoparticles selectively coupled to bio-molecular complexes, 
2) multiscale modeling of self-assembling nanoparticles and 
3) electronic structure and transport calculations of molecular 
and functionalized nanomaterials.

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 high level industry jobs.

The research will be conducted in the group of Prof. Petr Kral 
in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Illinois at 
Chicago (http://www2.chem.uic.edu/pkral/). Chicago is a highly 
multicultural place with a lot of possible activities, which is 
dramatically evolving. The UIC campus is nested within a walking 
distance to downtown. 

Interested candidates should send e-mail their CV and the names 
and contact information of several references to: pkral|-|uic.edu
