Subject: 19.04.05 Computational chemistry post-doctoral position(s), The University of British Columbia
The research group of Gino DiLabio at The University of British 
Columbia (UBC) anticipates openings for one or more post-doctoral 
fellows in several areas of computational chemistry. Candidates holding
 a PhD in chemistry, physics, or in a related field are encouraged to 
apply. The candidate(s) will join an international team of researchers,
 and will have access to group-dedicated computational resources 
supported by the Compute Canada consortium. 

The group is based on the Okanagan Campus of UBC in Kelowna. The campus
 has a thriving research and learning community and offers many 
opportunities for personal development and interdisciplinary 
collaboration. The City of Kelowna is in the heart of the Okanagan 
valley and is surrounded by the Rocky Mountains and many freshwater 
lakes. The region possesses a unique micro-climate characterized by 
hot, dry summers and short, mild winters. The area is home to more than
 200 wineries and has several excellent ski resorts within driving 
distance from Kelowna.

Candidates with expertise and interest in one or more of the following 
areas are strongly encouraged to apply:
  +Molecular crystal structure prediction
  +QM/MM enzyme dynamics
  +Physical organic chemistry/reaction rate constant modeling

In their application package, candidates should clearly demonstrate 
that they possess expertise in one of the areas listed above. 
Applicants should also outline how they possess the following 
attributes required for the position(s):

  +Knowledge of the Linux environment, including scripting 
  +Expertise with quantum mechanical, molecular dynamics, and 
   multiscale and/or QM/MM modeling  programs. 
  +Strong, fundamental knowledge of density-functional theory and 
   wavefunction theory and expertise in their application.
  +Excellent written and oral communication skills in English.
  +Ability to engage in independent scholarly activity.
  +Interest in student mentorship.
  +Experience programming in Fortran and matlab/octave would be 
   considered an asset.

The position(s) will be supported for a minimum of one year, with the 
potential for renewal for at least one additional year following
a performance review. Hiring may begin as early as May 2019. 
Exceptional candidates may be eligible for support through one of 
several prestigious post-doctoral support programs offered through 
UBC (Mitacs, Killam, Banting). 

Interested applicants should send a cover letter outlining their skill 
set and their research and career goals, a detailed CV, and the contact
details for three academic references. Please submit the requested
information in a single pdf package by e-mail to:

The evaluation of candidates will begin immediately and continue until 
the available positions are filled. UBC and the DiLabio group are 
committed to equity, inclusion and the provision of a respectful work
