Postdoctoral Computational Chemists, Aurora Clark Lab, WSU, Pullman, WA

The laboratory of Aurora Clark at Washington State University ( ) is looking for two (2) highly-motivated postdoctoral candidates with a background in computational chemistry (classical molecular dynamics, DFT-based MD), data science and/or applied mathematics(e.g., graph theory, computational topology, or machine learning). The candidate will study multicomponent complex solutions and their interfaces, and design new analysis techniques (as in, DOI: 10.1021/acs.jctc.0c00260) aimed at improving mass transport processes in separations science, elucidating speciation and reactivity under highly non-ideal conditions. These projects are funded by the Department of Energy Office of Science through the Energy Frontier Research Center on Interfacial Dynamics in Radioactive Environments and Materials, as well as the Basic Energy Sciences Separations Program, and the Descriptors of Energy Landscapes Using Topological Analysis NSF Frameworks program (

# Qualifications
Highly skilled in molecular dynamics software (LAMMPS, gromacs, CP2K etc.), with extensive script and coding experience (preferably Python). Strong understanding of the chemistry and physics of solution phase processes. Experience with collective variables, transition state theory, and/or metadynamics desired.
A productive track record with at least three first-author publications is desired. We seek a driven individual who will hit the ground running, lead her/his research independently, and communicate frequently and clearly to collaborative partners.

# Environment
Located in southwestern Washington State, WSU is a haven for outdoor lovers and those seeking a peaceful college town.

# How to apply
Interested candidates should submit a CV and arrange that three letters of reference be sent directly to auclark]_[
