Postdoc Position of Soft Matter Simulations
(Salary is $57K-$60K; duration 2 years; starting from winter of 2023 or early spring of 2024)
One Postdoctoral positions of simulations of soft matter is available from in the winter of 2023 or spring of 2024 in the Chemical Engineering / Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of South Carolina. This position is for the project about biological systems (proteins, lipids and nucleotides), interfacial electron transfer/redox or polymer crosslinking using multiscale simulations. The appointment will be two years.
1) Expertise in MD simulations (atomistic and coarse-grained), DPD simulations, QM/MM, AIMD, or/and kinetic Monte Carlo.
2) Expertise in the simulations of protein docking, protein-ligan binding, polymer crosslinking, or/and interfacial redox and electron transfer.
3) Good programming skills.
Knowledge in one or more of the following areas: (1) experience with the MD simulation software (such as Gromacs, Lampps, NAMD, Amber or CHARMM); (2) experience in the
quantum software (QChem, CP2K, Quantum Expresso or VASP); (2) programming skills in Python, C++, C or Fortran; (4) Ability to work effectively with a multidisciplinary team.
The expertise in Machine learning or the development of coarse-grained forcefiled parameters would be a plus.
Interested applicants should first send a CV via email to Dr. Tao Wei (email@example.com). In the CV, please detail the manner in which your skills can be applied to the proposed research. The short-listed applicants will be contacted for an online interview. The candidate should arrange for at least two letters of recommendation to be sent directly to Dr Wei, when requested. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
Note: As a new faculty of U of South Carolina in the fall of 2023, his official faculty profile has not been published by the university.
