Masters/PhD positions in Biophysics/Applied Math (in vivo/vitro viral infection modelling)

Institution/Company

Ryerson University

Job Description

The work would be in the area of mathematical/computational modelling of viral infections within a host or cell culture.

***NOTE: This project does not involve an experimental component. The data is collected elsewhere by collaborators. More specifically, the work would consist in capturing the dynamics and predicting the development of drug resistance under anti-influenza treatment with neuraminidase inhibitors, adamantanes or drug cocktails, in collaboration with drug companies and other collaborators. More information about the type of research conducted within the phymbie group is available at http://phymbie.physics.ryerson.ca. Masters candidate can be supervised either through the Ryerson University Masters of Science programme in Biomedical Physics (Dept. of Physics) or in Applied Mathematics (Dept. of Mathematics). PhD candidates will be working towards a Doctor of Philosophy in the field of Biomedical Physics (Dept. of Physics). Interested candidates should contact Dr. Catherine Beauchemin at cbeau@ryerson.ca.
