Computational Chemistry Research Opportunities to Obtain the Ph.D.
in Chemistry at the University of Cincinnati

The University of Cincinnati has Ph.D. programs in all areas of physical 
science including Chemistry, and there are specialized Ph.D. options in 
a number of disciplines including Computational Chemistry. Detailed 
information for applying for the Ph.D. program in the Department of 
Chemistry are available at:

Computational Research Programs in Chemistry
With the advent of ever more powerful computing hardware, the application 
of computational studies to understand biochemical and chemical systems 
and their nanoscale properties is rapidly increasing in scientific 
importance worldwide. Not only are computational approaches becoming 
necessary to model and help understand how molecular systems function 
from a fundamental standpoint, but they also have an increasing importance 
in various commercial sectors. For example, biotechnology companies have 
a considerable ongoing need for individuals trained in computational 
approaches that are involved in modeling ligand-target interactions 
and biomimetic materials and the chemical industry is increasingly 
employing computational techniques in product design.  

At the University of Cincinnati, we recognize the critical scientific 
and economic importance of computational based molecular research. In the 
Chemistry Department, Professors Ruxandra Dima, George Stan, and 
Thomas Beck pursue computational research projects supported through 
federal grants primarily from the National Science Foundation. 
Opportunities for industrial research experience are available through 
the UC Simulation Center and Procter&Gamble. Active areas of interest 
range from protein folding, to interactions between macromolecules 
involved in fundamental cellular processes such as mitosis and protein 
degradation, to confinement of proteins within nanopores, to specific ion 
effects in water and ions in other solvents for energy storage applications.
We have a number of opportunities for Ph.D. students who wish to pursue 
these types of projects for their doctoral dissertation research. For 
further details see the individual faculty webpages accessible on the 
Department of Chemistry website at

or send inquires to ruxandra.dima ~ uc.edu, george.stan ~ uc.edu, or becktl ~ ucmail.uc.edu.  
Questions pertaining to the admission process can be addressed directly to the 
A&S Chemistry Graduate Admissions at chemgradprog ~ ucmail.uc.edu.
