We are a group of scientists in the Bellini Building, roaming about on the 2nd floor, or toiling at a bench, or working away in front of a computer or the confocal, or drinking an expresso. Yeah, a herd of nerds- that might be the best way to describe us. Most of us are biologists, some are programmers, some are inclined to biophysics or math. Most of us are a bit of everything.
The Vogel and Francois labs seek to recruit a co-supervised biophysics graduate student at either the M.Sc. or PhD level, for the fall of 2013. The training environment is dynamic and interdisciplinary, with students originating from engineering and the natural and physical sciences, with wet lab, computational and office space in the Bellini pavilion of the McGill life science complex.
The successful candidate will contribute to a experimental biophysics research program with a significant theoretical component. Candidates must have a strong background in physics, and a basic background in cell biology. Training in biophysics or soft condensed matter physics is a plus.
Candidates can apply through the Department of Physics or the Department of Biology. Fellowship opportunities for exceptional canadian and international students are available through CDMC (http://www.cdmc-create.ca/en/).
To apply, send the following information to
jackie (dot) vogel (at) mcgill (dot) ca and
paulf (at) physics (dot) mcgill (dot) ca
1) letter of interest
3) electronic transcripts
4) name and email address for three references familiar with the applicant's academic or research record.
