Subject: 21.01.27 PhD Student in Computational Chemistry/Biomolecular Modeling, Department of Chemistry at Michigan Technological University
A position for Ph.D. student in Computational Chemistry and Biochemistry is available in the group of Dr. Christo Z. Christov in the Department of Chemistry at Michigan Technological University, Houghton, MI. The research studies will involve intensive learning and gaining practical skills in Computational Chemistry and Biochemistry. The research topics will be focused on understanding the catalytic mechanisms of transition metal containing enzymes involved in gene regulation in reference to experimental structural, spectroscopic and biochemical studies. The project will involve learning and applying of Multilevel Molecular Modelling Methods such as Combined Quantum Mechanical and Molecular Mechanics (QM/MM) methods, Quantum Mechanics and Molecular Dynamics studies. The main focus of the studies will be on non-heme Fe(II) containing enzymes involved in epigenetic regulation (histone- and DNA-demethylases) but also on other enzymes (e.g. di-iron oxygenases). The individual interests and attitudes of the students will be taken into account in designing the research studies. 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 with focus on enzyme mechanisms and dynamics - Some experience and/or strong interest for computational work, Linux, shell scripting The position would be 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 details about the research group can be found at: http://chem.sites.mtu.edu/christov/ The start date should be no later than August, 2021.
The interested applicants should contact Dr. Christov by e-mail on christov(a)mtu.edu and send a current CV with a brief description of research interests and experience.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
