Postdoctoral Position in
Theoretical Chemistry and Biology

Our group carries out theoretical and modeling work at the interface between chemistry, biology and mathematics. Recent and current projects range from modeling certain aspects of photosynthesis to the development of mathematical methods for reducing high-dimensional dynamical systems to small systems of ordinary differential equations. For more information and for a list of our publications, see

We intend to hire a postdoctoral fellow for a period of 18 months, with a possibility of extending the appointment if funding allows. The salary will be 2500 $CDN per month. A small relocation allowance will also be available.

Projects will be matched to the successful applicant's interests and skills. A Ph.D. in the biological, mathematical or physical sciences is required. The ideal candidate will have at least some experience in computer programming. This individual should have a good background in nonlinear dynamics. Experience in creating and validating models of natural phenomena would be an asset. Furthermore, the successful applicant should have strong writing skills.

To apply, send a CV along with the names, physical and electronic addresses, phone and fax numbers of two referees, and a cover letter to:

Marc R. Roussel
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
University of Lethbridge
Lethbridge, Alberta T1K 3M4

or by email to Email applications should be in plain text, HTML or PostScript (no word processor files, please). The cover letter should explain how the background of the applicant is relevant to work in theoretical chemistry or biology, with an emphasis on the qualifications described above. The nature of the applicant's contributions to jointly authored work should also be outlined.
