Subject: 17.11.04 Computational PhD studies at Chicago
Applications are invited for PhD studies in 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 they 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 colloidal nanoparticles with active 
ligands (bio-applications), 2) multiscale simulations of the self-assembly 
of nanoparticles and 3) electronic structure and transport calculations 
in molecular and functionalized nanomaterials.

The research will be conducted in the group of Prof. Petr Kral in the 
Chemistry Department of the University of Illinois at Chicago 

We are seeking creative and highly motivated students, with computational 
skills and background in physics, chemistry, and/or biology. Preliminary 
knowledge of computational methods used in the above fields is highly 
welcome, i.e. methods used in electronic structure calculations, 
quantum transport, molecular dynamics, etc. 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.
