A postdoctoral position is available immediately at the U.S. Army
Research Laboratory. The position involves the continued development
of bottom-up coarse-grain methodologies built around the molecular
dynamics and dissipative particle dynamics methods. The project is
part of a multiscale experimental and computational research program,
where collaboration with experimentalists is expected. The project
involves interactions with computational scientists working at various
scales, from quantum chemists to continuum mechanicians.

Experience with particle simulation techniques (e.g., molecular
dynamics, Monte Carlo, dissipative particle dynamics) is required.
Familiarity with bottom-up coarse-graining methods such as structure
matching, force-matching etc. is a plus. The position will require
substantial modifications of large parallel molecular simulation
software written in C++, Fortran95, and previous experience in
scientific software development is essential.

Qualified candidates should have received their doctorates in one of
the following areas of study: Chemical or Mechanical Engineering,
Chemistry, Physics, or Materials Science.

Salary is commensurate with experience and skills, but approximately
$6500/month plus health insurance allowance. Publication in the open
literature and attendance at national and international meetings is
expected. Opportunities exist for interactions with other government
laboratories and university researchers.
The position is available at the Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, which is 20
minutes north of Baltimore, and offers easy access to Washington D.C.,
Philadelphia, and New York City.

Candidates must be U.S. citizens.
