The successful candidate will join a team working on analytical theory as well as computational modeling of intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) with a strong emphasis on IDP/RNA phase separation. IDP/RNA phase separation is a relatively new yet highly productive area of investigation that has generated intense interest. Physicists can make important contributions to better understand this fascinating phenomenon which has immense biophysical, biological and biomedical ramifications. The Chan group is active in the field (see publication webpage) and has established collaborations with several experimental laboratories in Toronto.
Applicants should be highly motivated individuals with a strong background in biophysics, physical chemistry and physics as well as extensive experience in computation. Please send curriculum vitae, statement of research interest, and arrange three letters of reference to be sent directly to Prof. Hue Sun Chan at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com (please email both addresses).
About Departments of Biochemistry and of Molecular Genetics, University of Toronto
An academic research group that specializes in theoretical and computational biophysics, with current interests focusing mainly on the fundamental principles of protein interactions involving intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) in general, and phase separation of IDPs and nucleic acids in particular.
