Subject: 18.09.28 Postdoctoral Appointee Computational & Theoretical Chemist Livermore, CA
We are seeking a postdoctoral appointee performing work as a computational
and theoretical chemist.

Your main responsibility will be to further develop and apply new methods
to automatically calculate reaction rate coefficients for use in large
chemical kinetic mechanisms.

You will be part of a US DOE Exascale Computational Project aimed at
complex combustion simulations.

You will have good presentation, writing, and interpersonal skills.

EEO Statement:
All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without
regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity,
national origin, disability, or veteran status.

You have the following education and experience:
	A PhD in a relevant science or engineering discipline

	Substantial expertise in an area of computational chemistry and scientific

	Scientific ability shown by a strong publication record

It would be excellent if you also had:
	Knowledge of gas-phase oxidation chemistry

	Experience with transition state theory, master equations, quantum
        chemistry, statistical mechanics, molecular dynamics, or related

	Familiarity with high performance computing and quantum chemical codes

Security Clearance:
This position does not currently require a Department of Energy
(DOE)-granted security clearance.
Sandia will conduct a pre-employment drug testing, and a pre-employment
background review that includes personal reference checks, law enforcement
record checks, and employment and education verifications. Further,
employees in New Mexico must pass a U.S. Air Force background screen for
access to the work site. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification
of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators
of untrustworthiness can cause access to be denied or terminated, rendering
the inability to perform the duties assigned and resulting in termination
of employment.
If hired without a clearance, and one subsequently becomes required or you
bid on positions that require a DOE-granted security clearance, a
pre-processing background review that includes personal reference checks,
law enforcement record and credit checks, and employment and education
verifications may be conducted prior to a required federal background
investigation. Applicants for DOE-granted security clearances must be U.S.
citizens and be able to obtain and maintain the appropriate DOE security
clearance as required for the position.

Department Description:
The Combustion Chemistry and Diagnostics Department is part of Sandia's
Combustion Research Facility (CRF) in Livermore, California, where over 100
scientists, engineers, and technologists conduct basic and applied research
to improve our nation's ability to use and control combustion processes
efficiently and cleanly. Under the principal sponsorship of the Department
of Energy's Office of Basic Energy Sciences, the Combustion Chemistry and
Diagnostics Department conducts fundamental experimental, theoretical, and
modeling research to develop a foundational understanding of the key
chemical processes that underlie the complex mechanisms of combustion.
Additional programs investigate the effects of combustion emissions on
atmospheric composition and climate. Research areas include chemical
dynamics and spectroscopy, theoretical and experimental chemical kinetics,
flame chemistry and modeling, and gas-phase and particulate diagnostics
development and deployment.
