Subject: 17.11.30 Two Postdoctoral Positions in Computational/Theoretical Chemistry at the University of South Dakota
Applications are invited for two postdoctoral positions in Computational/Theoretical Chemistry in the Chemistry Department of the University of South Dakota (USD). Review of applications will begin February 20th, 2018 and continue until the position is filled. The initial appointment is funded for two years, and continuation after the initial two years is subject to funding and performance. POSITION 1: Research in Dr. Pere Miro's Group A Postdoctoral Researcher position is available in Dr. Pere Miros research group in the Chemistry Department of the University of South Dakota (https://quantumcoyote.github.io/miro/index.html). This position involves research in the area of theoretical/computational chemistry using state-of-the-art multilevel computational methodologies. The research focuses on the study of dynamic properties and chemical reactivity in confined spaces with application to surfactant-based separations and catalysis inside molecular and 3D nanoporous systems. The postdoctoral researcher is expected to perform his/her research with a high degree of scientific independence using state-of-the-art quantum mechanics and molecular simulation software, present his/her research at national and international scientific meetings and prepare scientific publications. Applicants should send a letter of intent, a CV, and arrange three letters of recommendation to be sent directly to Dr. Pere Miro at Pere.Miro .. usd.edu. POSITION 2: Research in Dr. Bess Vlaisavljevich's Group A Postdoctoral Researcher position is available in Dr. Bess Vlaisavljevichs research group in the Chemistry Department of the University of South Dakota (https://quantumcoyote.github.io/vlaisavljevich/index.html). This position involves research in the area of computational chemistry and will focus on the study of molecules and materials with complex electronic structure for applications in heavy element chemistry, information storage/electronic devices, catalysis, and environmental sensors. The postdoctoral scholar will perform calculations using a variety of computational methods with emphasis in multiconfigurational wave function based methods, density functional theory, and molecular simulations (Monte Carlo and potentially some molecular dynamics). The ideal applicant will have significant experience in one or more of these areas with an interest to gain expertise in other methodologies and apply them to challenging systems. The postdoctoral researcher is expected to perform independent research, mentor junior group members, present work at scientific meetings, and prepare scientific publications. Through this position, the postdoctoral researcher will gain skills in modeling complex electronic structure beyond DFT, combining quantum chemistry with molecular simulations (Monte Carlo), collaborating with both computational and experimental groups, and opportunities for professional development. Applicants should send a letter of intent, a CV, and arrange three letters of recommendation to be sent directly to Dr. Bess Vlaisavljevich at Bess.Vlaisavljevich .. usd.edu. Required Qualifications - PhD degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, or closely related field - A strong background in computational/theoretical chemistry - Strong track record of scientific productivity as well as experience in managing several projects simultaneously - Proven publication track record - Excellent oral and written communication skills - Demonstrated ability to work independently as well as in collaboration.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
