Subject: 19.05.07 NRC Postdoctoral Associateship opportunities in the application of AI to chemistry
Qualified applicants are invited to apply for postdoctoral research opportunities at the National Institute of Science and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The aim of our group is to use artificial intelligence to understand chemistry. Our current research objective is to design and train deep neural networks to understand the structure of chemicals and chemical reactions in a manner similar to how humans learn chemistry, but over sets of data that are much larger than can be understood by a single human. The resulting networks would then be used to comprehensively predict chemical reactions and properties, and potentially understand particular reaction classes at a deeper level than current scientific knowledge. A particular application would be to generate theoretical spectra for molecules not yet included in the NIST mass spectral libraries, used by many thousands of scientists worldwide. NIST is a center for measurement excellence, and, as a result, has available for this research large sets of high quality data on chemical structures and chemical reactions essential for deep learning. NIST also provides excellent computational support, including a substantial GPU compute cluster. The successful applicant would have an opportunity to interact with the large community of chemists, physicists and computer scientists at NIST. A growing artificial intelligence interest group at NIST holds regular meetings. It is not a requirement to be a chemist to apply for this position. Computer scientists, physicists, and scientists from related disciplines will be well qualified. US citizenship is required. The base stipend for NRC associateships at NIST is $72,028 with a travel allowance of $3,000. The awards are made on a competitive basis, whereby each applicant submits an original research proposal that is approved by the sponsoring adviser and evaluated by an NRC appointed panel.
The NRC Associateships are conducted by the National Institutes of Science, Engineering and Medicine. Application information can be found at http://sites.nationalacademies.org/PGA/RAP/index.htm. This opportunity can be found at http://nrc58.nas.edu/RAPLab10/Opportunity/Opportunity.aspx?LabCode=50&ROPCD=506451&RONum=C0267&ROBaseMode=R100.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
