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,
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
