Subject: 17.04.18 Statistical Mechanics postdoctoral position at Washington State University
Statistical Mechanics postdoctoral position at Washington State University

Highly motivated applicants are solicited for a computational postdoc within the group of 
Prof. Aurora E. Clark, in the Chemistry Department at Washington State University. The funded position (1 year, 
renewable up to 3 years upon mutual agreement) will study complex multicomponent solutions, 
including acidic conditions, high ionic strength, and hydrophobic solutes. Classical molecular dynamics
(non-polarizable and polarizable force fields), and ab-initio molecular dynamics are employed, 
alongside new graph theoretical methods for data exploration that determine relevant correlation 
functions and reaction coordinates. 

Candidates are sought with expertise and capabilities within:

- Classical and ab-initio molecular dynamics including force field development and parameterization
- Metadynamics and other enhanced sampling methods
- Free energy techniques

Required Skills: Candidates must have received a Ph.D. in Physics, Chemistry, Geochemistry, Applied
Mathematics, Materials Science, or an equivalent field within the last 5 years. Demonstrated expertise
within the fields of statistical mechanics as demonstrated by regular publication in the peer-reviewed
technical literature. Excellent oral and written communication skills are required. Application materials, 
including a CV and 3 letters of recommendation should be sent to Ms. Josefina Galvan
(j.galvan*wsu.edu). All technical questions can be sent to Prof. Aurora Clark (auclark*wsu.edu).
