Postdoctoral research positions: theoretical studies of organic and ionic materials

Postdoctoral research positions are available immediately in the research groups of Professors Thomas D. Sewell and Donald L. Thompson in the Department of Chemistry at The University of Missouri-Columbia. The focus areas of the research are:

•       Development and application of MD-based theoretical and computational methods for accurate predictions of vibrational spectroscopy and relaxation dynamics in organic and ionic materials, with particular emphasis on the terahertz region.

•       Development and application of MD force fields for simulating organic and ionic materials and interfaces subjected to extreme conditions of temperature, stress, and strain rate.

•       Development and application of dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) methods for simulating reactive materials under shock wave loading.

Demonstrated experience in one or more of these emphasis areas is required, as is code-developer-level experience with F90, C++, or a related computer language. Experience with Linux cluster system administration is highly desirable. Individuals lacking code development skills or whose experience is limited to performing calculations using unmodified off-the-shelf codes will not be considered.

Applicants should submit, via e-mail to sewellt(a) and thompsondon(a), a full CV that includes contact information for three references (reference letters sent by the candidate will not be considered). Please include the words “theoretical chemistry postdocs” in the subject line of the e-mail.

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
