Mini-Workshop: Statistical and Molecular Biophysics
access_time October 16, 2017
The 6th mini-workshop on 'Statistical and Molecular Biophysics' will be held at SISSA (Trieste, Italy) on October 18-19, 2017.

The workshop is organized in the same days of the PhD defenses of the SISSA program in Physics and Chemistry of Biological Systems, and is intended to give a broad overview of the state of the art in the modeling of biological systems.
New PhD positions available!
access_time July 18, 2017
At least 1 new position is available for the PhD in "Physics and Chemistry of Biological Systems" at the International School for Advanced Studies, Trieste, Italy.

The application deadline is September 11th, 2017.


Applicants should have a good background in Physics, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics or related subjects and are expected to obtain their Laurea Specialistica or equivalent degree by Autumn 2017.

Notice that SISSA can cover, in full or in part, the expenses of students who, after the first screening based on CV and letters of presentations, are admitted to the local entrance exam. Please contact phd@sissa.it for further information.

Admitted students will have the opportunity to follow a one-year educational program in an international and interdisciplinary environment, followed by two or three years of active research in one of the following areas:
  • structural bioinformatics,
  • statistical mechanics of complex molecular systems,
  • biomolecular simulations,
  • simulations of rare events.
  • simulations and modelling of cellular motility.
Ph.D. applications are now closed.
