Subject: 19.04.05 Computational chemistry post-doctoral position(s), The University of British Columbia
The research group of Gino DiLabio at The University of British Columbia (UBC) anticipates openings for one or more post-doctoral fellows in several areas of computational chemistry. Candidates holding a PhD in chemistry, physics, or in a related field are encouraged to apply. The candidate(s) will join an international team of researchers, and will have access to group-dedicated computational resources supported by the Compute Canada consortium. 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 personal development and interdisciplinary collaboration. The City of Kelowna is in the heart of the Okanagan valley and is surrounded by the Rocky Mountains and 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. Candidates with expertise and interest in one or more of the following areas are strongly encouraged to apply: +Molecular crystal structure prediction +QM/MM enzyme dynamics +Physical organic chemistry/reaction rate constant modeling In their application package, candidates should clearly demonstrate that they possess expertise in one of the areas listed above. Applicants should also outline how they possess the following attributes required for the position(s): +Knowledge of the Linux environment, including scripting languages. +Expertise with quantum mechanical, molecular dynamics, and multiscale and/or QM/MM modeling programs. +Strong, fundamental knowledge of density-functional theory and wavefunction theory and expertise in their application. +Excellent written and oral communication skills in English. +Ability to engage in independent scholarly activity. +Interest in student mentorship. +Experience programming in Fortran and matlab/octave would be considered an asset. The position(s) will be supported for a minimum of one year, with the potential for renewal for at least one additional year following a performance review. Hiring may begin as early as May 2019. Exceptional candidates may be eligible for support through one of several prestigious post-doctoral support programs offered through UBC (Mitacs, Killam, Banting). Interested applicants should send a cover letter outlining their skill set and their research and career goals, a detailed CV, and the contact details for three academic references. Please submit the requested information in a single pdf package by e-mail to: gino.dilabio_ubc.ca The evaluation of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the available positions are 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!!!
