Subject: 23.12.20 Postdoc, Solid State Calculations and Modeling of Materials, Jovanovic Group, NC State University, North Carolina, USA
Essential Job Duties:	

The primary purpose of the Postdoctoral Research Scholar position will be to 
theoretically predict, model, and analyze the properties of new quantum 
materials. The work will focus on exploring connections between chemical 
bonding and quantum phases of matter, with the objective of improving design 
rules for quantum materials development.

The Postdoctoral Research Scholar will be mentored by Dr. Jovanovic 
and will participate in the weekly group meetings and meet individually with 
this principal investigator at least once per week when the travel schedule 
allows. The Postdoc will write journal articles under the principal 
investigators supervision and attend at least one academic conference 
during their time in the group.

The primary duties include conducting research, giving seminars, and 
writing papers in English. Secondary duties include mentoring of junior 
scientists, such as graduate and undergraduate students.

The Department of Chemistry at NC State University provides professional 
education for chemists at the undergraduate and graduate levels; 
teaches introductory chemistry courses, which are needed by students 
enrolled in other department programs; advances the discipline of chemistry 
by conducting research; serves the public by sharing information about 
chemistry through a variety of mechanisms and services, and commits to 
creating environments that are in alignment with our mission, vision and 
values. Our department is home to award-winning faculty and is one of 
NC States top producers of patent and invention disclosures.

the university.

Work Schedule:	

Monday-Friday, 40 hrs/week, some evenings and weekends, when required. 

Department Required Skills:

The candidate must be comfortable with the Unix environment. 
The computational side of the position relies on ab initio computational 
chemistry and solid-state software, such as Orca and VASP. The modeling 
can be performed using the software of the candidate choosing, such as 
Mathematica, Matlab, or Python, but the candidate should be proficient in 
at least one of them.

Preferred Years of Experience, Skills, Training, Education:

Although Dr. Jovanovic is primarily seeking a candidate with experience 
in the solid-state calculations and modeling of materials, all motivated 
candidates with experience in theoretical and computational chemistry, 
physics, and material science are encouraged to apply. Experience 
with Python is a plus.
