Subject: 19.04.24 Postdoc in multi-scale modelling at University of Calgary, AB, Canada
Postdoctoral Position with Dennis Salahub group, Department of Chemistry, CMS-Centre for Molecular Simulation, Institute for Quantum Science and Technology, Quantum Alberta, University of Calgary, Canada A postdoctoral position is available immediately or within the year in the Salahub group at the University of Calgary (www.ucalgary.ca/dennis-salahub-lab ) . The position is in the general area of theoretical chemistry and may involve the development of multiscale-modeling methodologies related to the deMon software (www.demon-software.com) and applications to either biochemical reactivity or nanocatalytic upgrading of heavy oil. Collaboration with the Sergei Noskov group at the CMS would be desirable. Possibilities include a collaborative project aimed at developing enhanced QM/MM free energy simulation techniques, approaches to reveal complex free energy surfaces from quantum or QM/MM simulations, with application to studies of selective ion transport across biological membranes. The project may involve methodology development in areas spanning from the implementation of new density functionals in deMon2k, improvements of sampling algorithms and methods to reveal both energetics/kinetics of enzymatic reactions to applications that stretch the capabilities of current methodology (ion channels, membrane transporters, metalloenzymes, inorganic (transition-metal, lanthanide) nanocatalysis). Candidates should have a Ph.D. in theoretical/computational chemistry or a related field, with demonstrated strength in the areas of chemical physics, biophysics, biochemistry, physical chemistry, or molecular physics to name a few areas of specialization. Experience with coding for applications to complex systems would be an advantage. The University of Calgary (www.ucalgary.ca) is a well-recognized national and international leader in computational chemistry and biosciences and offers a unique access to a collaborative environment. The CMS (www.ucalgary.ca/molsim/ ), IQIST (www.iqst.ca ) and Quantum Alberta (http://quantumalberta.ca/) provide ample opportunities for collaboration across a broad range of disciplines that rely on computation/simulation of complex systems. Further collaboration will be available with the deMon Developers, a loose international consortium of researchers who are interested in developing the deMon software (www.demon-software.com). Formidable computational resources are available both locally and through Compute Canada. To apply, please submit a CV detailing your academic training, achievements, publications etc. as well as a brief cover letter explaining interest in and fit for the position, and contact information for three references to Professor Salahub (dsalahub(!)ucalgary.ca) directly.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
