Postdoctoral Position Available at Northwestern University

A postdoctoral associate position is available immediately at the Computational Nanodynamics Group at Northwestern University. This research project focuses broadly on the atomistic and meso-scale modeling of biomolecular materials and their interfaces with engineered polymers. Nanostructural predictions, self-assembly studies, and simulations of mechanofunctional behavior constitute the scope of the project. The post-doctoral researcher will have the opportunity to investigate diverse issues related to self-assembly and mechanics phenomena in nanostructured hybrid materials that blend the best aspects of biological systems and engineered polymers.
