PhD Scholarship: Computational Modelling of Protein-Surface Complexes

Studentship

PhD Scholarship: Computational Modelling of Protein-Surface Complexes

Project(s)

The successful applicant will join a team developing new computational tools to model the physicochemical properties of proteins as they adsorb on nanostructured surfaces.

The student training will include the acquisition of skills in scientific computing and application of computer modelling tools to design of advanced materials and bio-engineering.

The student will learn modelling techniques including quantum mechanical calculations, molecular dynamics and free energy simulations run on highly-parallelised supercomputers

Faculty

Science and Engineering, Dept. of Physics / Bernal Institute

Entry Requirements

The candidate must have or expect to obtain a first or 2.1 Hons degree in physics / chemistry or equivalent degree and have a strong interest in molecular modelling.

Funding/Stipend

EU level fees and a stipend of €18000 per annum for four years

Closing Date

The post will be advertised until the position is filled
