Subject: 20.06.26 Postdoctoral Position: Electron Nuclear Dynamics for Proton Cancer Therapy Reactions
Position: A NIH-funded postdoctoral position in theoretical/computational chemistry is available in the group of Prof. Jorge A. Morales in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Texas Tech University (TTU), Lubbock, Texas, USA. About the Projects: We are looking for a self-motivated and collaborative candidate who will help us to apply and program electron nuclear dynamics (END) methodologies to simulate proton cancer therapy (PCT) reactions (e.g., water radiolysis, and proton- and electron-induced DNA damage, cf. E. S. Teixeira et al., Cancers 2018, 10, 136, https://doi.org/10.3390/cancers10050136). END is a time-dependent, variational, non-adiabatic and direct-dynamics method that describes nuclei classically and electrons quantum mechanically. Projects are broadly defined so a suitable candidate can contribute in at least one of the following areas: 1) Further parallelization and application of our codes to simulate PCT reactions involving large biomolecules and water clusters, 2) incorporating solvent models into END to simulate PCT reactions, or 3) modelling PCT reactions involving electron capture/scattering. Candidate Requirements: Candidates should be familiar with electronic structure methods (e.g. Hartree-Fock, DFT, or post-Hartree-Fock methods) and/or chemical dynamics methods. Coding experience with those methods would be ideal. Candidates should have experience with at least one of the following programming languages: Python, FORTRAN, or C++. Additional assets for application may include experience with PCT reaction simulations including those with electron capture/scattering, with MPI and OpenMP parallel programming, with polarizable continuum solvent models, or with electronic structure methods based on plane waves basis sets.
Terms and Application: The initial appointment will be for a period of one year, renewable for a second year upon mutual consent. Applications must include cover letter, description of research experiences and interests, and a full CV including list of publications and references. Candidates should apply at http://www.depts.ttu.edu/hr/workattexastech/, click on staff (or other corresponding category) at the upper left, and search for requisition 20987BR. Applicants must also have two letters of recommendation addressed to Prof. Jorge A. Morales and emailed to Ms. Donna M. Forsyth (donna.m.forsyth[#]ttu.edu). For questions and problems in the application procedure through the above link, please, email Donna M. Forsyth. For informal inquiries about the position itself and its research aspects, please, email Prof. Jorge A. Morales (jorge.morales[#]ttu.edu). The position will remain open until the appropriate candidate is hired.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
