Subject: 22.05.08 Postdoc and fully-funded PhD positions in Molecular Simulations of Soft Materials in the USA
We are seeking motivated and independent postdoc and Ph.D. students to work on molecular simulations of polymers and biomolecules at Louisiana State University (LSU). 
The projects include investigating conformations, physical/thermodynamic properties of polymers, peptides, proteins, and RNAs, building data-driven approaches 
to predict structures and properties of the soft materials,and free energy calculations of small drug molecules in different environments.  

Position 1: Postdoctoral Researcher  

Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering, Physics, or closely related fields. Substantial research experience in computational chemistry.  
Strong computer skills: Linux, Python, etc. 
Experience with a variety of techniques: LAMMPS, NAMD, GROMACS, AMBER, DFT, ORCA, etc. 
Good publication record.  
Starting date: The position is open beginning as early as August 15, 2022.  
The position is initially a one-year appointment, but funding is available for a second year. 

Position 2: Ph.D. students  

Prospective students are expected to have or will receive Bachelors/Masters degree in Chemical engineering, 
Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering and other relevant fields. 
Strong background in mathematics, coding/computation, thermodynamics, chemical physics, or materials design is preferred, 
but not required. GRE and TOEFL scores might be required for graduate applications.
