Subject: 19.10.20 Postdoc position at UBC: Methods development for molecular crystal structure prediction
The research group of Gino DiLabio at The University of British Columbia (UBC) currently has an opening for a post-doctoral fellow in computational chemistry/condensed matter physics, with a specific focus on methods development for a priori molecular crystal structure prediction based on our ACP methodology (see: Prasad et al, J. Chem. Theory Comput. 2018, 14, 726-738). Candidates holding a PhD in chemistry, physics, or in a related field are encouraged to apply. The candidate will join an international team of researchers and collaborators. They will have access to group-dedicated computational resources supported by the Compute Canada consortium. Candidates with expertise in plane wave density-functional theory, and experience with programming and scripting are strongly encouraged to apply. The main project in which the incumbent will be involved relates to methods development for molecular crystal structure prediction. Applicants should also outline how they possess the following attributes required for the position: *Knowledge of the Linux environment, including scripting languages. *Experience programming in Fortran and Matlab/Octave. *Expertise with quantum mechanics-based programs, such as Quantum Espresso, Crystal, and Gaussian. *Strong, fundamental knowledge of density-functional theory. *Excellent written and oral communication skills in English. *Ability to engage in independent scholarly activity. *Interest in student mentorship. The group is based on the Okanagan Campus of UBC in Kelowna. The campus has a thriving research and learning community and offers many opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration. The City of Kelowna is in the heart of the Rocky Mountains and is surrounded by many freshwater lakes. The region possesses a unique micro-climate characterized by hot, dry summers and short, mild winters. The area is home to more than 200 wineries and has several excellent ski resorts within driving distance from Kelowna. The position will be supported for a minimum of one year, with the potential for renewal for at least one additional second year following a performance review. Hiring may begin as early as November 2019. Interested applicants should send a cover letter outlining their skill set and their research and career goals, a detailed CV, and the contact information for three academic references. Please submit the requested material in a single pdf package by e-mail to gino.dilabio_._ubc.ca with the subject line CMP post-doc. Due to the large number of applications we receive, only those candidates that qualify for the position will be contacted. The evaluation of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the available position is filled. UBC and the DiLabio group are committed to equity, inclusion and the provision of a respectful work environment.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
