Postdoctoral positions at the University of Michigan

One or more postdoctoral positions are available immediately in the group of Professor Angela Violi at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. The overall environment of the Violi research group offers postdocs and graduate students broad exposure to computational methodology, interdisciplinary concepts, and advanced computational skills. Research opportunities presently exist in the Violi group in the areas of biology, materials science and combustion chemistry. Specific topics include modeling of nanopowders formation for novel materials, transport of nanoparticles, chemistry and physics of novel fuels, and modeling of nano/bio interfaces.
Top candidates with a Ph.D. degree in physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering, or related fields are invited to apply. Candidates are expected to have experience with molecular simulations.
Preference will be given to candidates with intrinsic curiosity and strong personal drive for fundamental scientific discovery and with a strong record of original work as demonstrated by publications in internationally-recognized refereed journals.
Salary is negotiable and the University contributions to health/dental benefits are provided. Past group members have enjoyed excellent employment opportunities in both academia and industry. More information can be found on our web page at

Ann Arbor is a picturesque city surrounding the University of Michigan. It has a strong bent toward the arts, and abundant cultural opportunities. The area is rich of opportunities for hiking, outdoor adventures with its 157 city parks and festivals.  Downtown Ann Arbor is brimming with restaurants, museums, world-class music and performances, and more.
Interested applicants should send a CV with publication list in PDF format and contact information for 3 references with a brief explanation of the relationship to each reference to  `` `at` ``.
Review of applicants will begin immediately and will continue until the positions are filled.

Oh fine

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
