Openings

Shukla Group has positions open right now for Postdoc, Graduate and Undergraduate students. The positions mainly involve research in high performance computing and simulations of biological systems but students would be encouraged to perform experiments for validating their computational results. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign offers unique resources and environment for performing exciting research in computational & theoretical biophysics due to the presence of National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA)Blue Waters Supercomputer (one of the fastest supercomputer in world) and several other leading theoretical biophysics groups on campus. Group members will have an opportunity to not only use these unique resources on campus but also distributed computing platforms such as Folding@home as a part of the project.

Please contact our PI for further details at diwakar[at]ilinois[dot]edu.

  • Postdoctoral Position

    Available in our group starting Summer/Fall 2017. The position will involve research in high performance computing and biomolecular modeling. We are interested in candidates with experience in computational biology and bioinformatics, including but not limited to novel computational algorithms and methods, large scale simulations, parallel programming, multi scale modeling and data analysis.

    Outstanding communication skills, ability to interact with a technically diverse team and excellent publication record are expected. Please email Diwakar with your CV and research interests to be considered for this position. For international students who need work visas, please note that the visa process takes approximately three months from the hire date so you are encouraged to apply several months ahead of the expected start date. For a more detailed description of the project and any other issues, Please contact our PI.

  • Graduate student(s)

    Graduate students admitted to Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering or related departments (Chemistry, Physics, Biophysics, Plant Biology etc.) are encouraged to email us to learn more about about our research.

    For a more detailed description of the project and any other issues, Please contact our PI.

  • Undergraduate student(s)

    Students currently enrolled at Illinois are encouraged to discuss undergraduate research opportunities with the Group Members. We use a GPA cut-off of 3.6 for undergraduate researchers.
