The Widdifield group in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at the University of Regina is pleased to announce that it is accepting student applications for a funded PhD student position (start date of Fall 2021)!
Broadly speaking, research topics will include: nuclear magnetic resonance, computational chemistry, and crystallography. There is a possibility to propose additional research themes, if desired.
Research focus will be on organic pharmaceutical molecules and antimicrobial compounds. Canadian applicants are expected to have a BSc degree in Chemistry (or a very closely related discipline) at minimum. International applicants are expected to have a commensurate background degree (this depends on the applicants’ country of education, but likely corresponds to either a BSc or MSc degree) in Chemistry (or a very closely related discipline). Preference will be given to applicants holding first-class / honours degrees, but all interested students are encouraged to apply.
The student will gain hands-on experience in the synthesis and purification of organic pharmaceuticals/antimicrobials, use of high-performance supercomputing resources, the operation of various NMR spectrometers across Canada, and performing synchrotron diffraction experiments at the internationally renowned Canadian Light Source. Research and study will be primarily performed at the University of Regina in beautiful Regina, Saskatchewan.
Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada who apply will be given priority, but international applications submitted prior to the deadline will be fully considered and are encouraged. The Widdifield group also fully supports and encourages applications from students in under-represented groups.
To apply, interested students should go to the URL (https://sites.google.com/site/corymwiddifield/) and click the ‘Apply’ tab. You will be directed to complete a form. Please have an up-to-date CV/resume ready, as well as unofficial transcripts and the name and contact details of two references.
Applications will be reviewed as they are received, but for full consideration, please submit a full application by the application deadline.
