Postdoc positions in Computational Chemistry/Computational Materials
Two postdoctoral positions in Computational Chemistry/Materials are to be filled in the group of Peter Kroll in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UT Arlington, Arlington, TX. The position is available immedeately and should be filled until January 2013.
One project focuses on boron nitride and addresses the conversion from an amorphous pre-ceramic state to cubic boron nitride. The second project is on oxidation mechanisms and kinetics of high-temperature ceramics, with a goal to bridge between atomistic computations and kinetic simulations.
Applicants will have a strong record in solid-state materials simulation and interest in High-Performance Computing. Experience in modeling on various length scales is required.
Successful candidates will work in collaboration with Teledyne Scientific Instruments. Since a strong interactions with the industrial partner is encouraged, written and spoken communication skills are expected, and US citizenship or permanent residency of applicants is preferred.
The positions are available immediately and initially for one year.
Interested candidates should submit their CV and a (maximal 1-page) statement adressing their experience related to the project topics to firstname.lastname@example.org (Peter Kroll) with the keyword "POSTDOC" in the subject line. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
