Subject: 17.11.30 Two Postdoctoral Positions in Computational/Theoretical Chemistry at the University of South Dakota
Applications are invited for two postdoctoral positions in 
Computational/Theoretical Chemistry in the Chemistry Department of 
the University of South Dakota (USD). Review of applications will 
begin February 20th, 2018 and continue until the position is filled. 
The initial appointment is funded for two years, and continuation 
after the initial two years is subject to funding and performance.


POSITION 1: Research in Dr. Pere Miro's Group
A Postdoctoral Researcher position is available in Dr. Pere Miros 
research group in the Chemistry Department of the University of South 
Dakota (https://quantumcoyote.github.io/miro/index.html). This position 
involves research in the area of theoretical/computational chemistry 
using state-of-the-art multilevel computational methodologies. The 
research focuses on the study of dynamic properties and chemical 
reactivity in confined spaces with application to surfactant-based 
separations and catalysis inside molecular and 3D nanoporous systems. 
The postdoctoral researcher is expected to perform his/her research 
with a high degree of scientific independence using state-of-the-art 
quantum mechanics and molecular simulation software, present his/her 
research at national and international scientific meetings and prepare 
scientific publications.

Applicants should send a letter of intent, a CV, and arrange three 
letters of recommendation to be sent directly to Dr. Pere Miro 
at Pere.Miro .. usd.edu.


POSITION 2: Research in Dr. Bess Vlaisavljevich's Group
A Postdoctoral Researcher position is available in Dr. Bess 
Vlaisavljevichs research group in the Chemistry Department of the 
University of South Dakota 
(https://quantumcoyote.github.io/vlaisavljevich/index.html). This 
position involves research in the area of computational chemistry and 
will focus on the study of molecules and materials with complex 
electronic structure for applications in heavy element chemistry, 
information storage/electronic devices, catalysis, and environmental 
sensors. The postdoctoral scholar will perform calculations using a 
variety of computational methods with emphasis in multiconfigurational 
wave function based methods, density functional theory, and molecular 
simulations (Monte Carlo and potentially some molecular dynamics). The 
ideal applicant will have significant experience in one or more of 
these areas with an interest to gain expertise in other methodologies 
and apply them to challenging systems. The postdoctoral researcher is 
expected to perform independent research, mentor junior group members, 
present work at scientific meetings, and prepare scientific publications. 
Through this position, the postdoctoral researcher will gain skills 
in modeling complex electronic structure beyond DFT, combining quantum 
chemistry with molecular simulations (Monte Carlo), collaborating with 
both computational and experimental groups, and opportunities for 
professional development.

Applicants should send a letter of intent, a CV, and arrange three 
letters of recommendation to be sent directly to Dr. Bess Vlaisavljevich 
at Bess.Vlaisavljevich .. usd.edu.
