Subject: 20.11.04 Postdoc in computational chemistry & chemoinformatics at The George Washington University
The Kostal Research Group at GWU is seeking a postdoctoral scientist for a multiyear, multidisciplinary project 
to develop new computational approaches for understanding direct and indirect photodegradation of pesticides.

Candidates must have PhD in computational chemistry, chemoinformatics or a related field with solid theoretical and practical knowledge of 
chemoinformatics, biostatistics and data science.
All candidates are expected to have strong data analytics skills as well as a modicum of scientific coding/scripting skills. 
A strong publication and presentation record is a must regardless of whether the candidate does or does not have past postdoctoral experience.   
Skillset in any of the following is welcome but not required: 
computational toxicology (esp. QSAR/QSPR model development), machine learning, database development, time-dependent QM modeling. 

We are looking for a highly motivated researcher, who is a good team player with strong interpersonal skills.
The candidate is expected to have spoken fluency in English and excellent scientific writing skills. 
Enthusiasm to work in an interactive team environment is a must!

Successful candidate will have the unique opportunity of leading a key project in one of the top computational green chemistry labs in the country. 
The candidate responsibilities will include mentoring graduate and undergraduate students, developing scientific presentations and publication materials, 
associated conference travel and assistance with grant-proposal writing. 

The Kostal group collaborates closely with leaders in green chemistry and toxicology in government and industry, including both large companies 
as well as dynamic start ups in the US and abroad. Thus, this job may open many interesting career-path opportunities for the candidate.
Candidates should send a letter of intent outlining their past research experiences and accomplishments as well as their future career
interests along with a resume/CV to Prof. Kostal: jkostal"at"
