Subject: 17.04.12 Postdoc Position in Computational Catalysis and Materials Science
The Turner Lab at The University of Alabama (Tuscaloosa, AL, USA) is seeking a postdoctoral student to work on modeling projects related to computational catalysis and advanced materials synthesis. Both projects involve the development of advanced kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) simulation tools, so strong programming skills (Fortran preferred) and previous computational experience are desired, as well as a Ph.D. in a closely related field. The position pays approximately $47,500/yr, with an initial appointment of 1 year that can be extended for additional years, based on performance. The first project is a computational and experimental collaboration to develop atomistically-precise catalysts for the direct epoxidation of propylene to propylene oxide using gold-based catalysts. Multi-scale simulation techniques (DFT, KMC, continuum) are being designed to build a model capable of predicting catalytic performance relevant to experimental time-scales. The second project is focused on developing a KMC-based technique for generating amorphous carbon structures for adsorption applications. This is a mimetic technique that is intended to minimize or eliminate the reliance upon experimental scattering data for generating a realistic atomistic model. This project will primarily involve KMC model development, as well as other Monte Carlo techniques for structural analysis.
