Post-doc/Research Scientist Position.

Post-doctoral Application (Jun 11, 2024)

Qualification and Desired Qualification:

Essential Qualification • Ph.D. in Computational Chemical Engineering/ Physics/ Chemistry/ or relevant engineering background. • The candidate should have a significant background in statistical mechanics, molecular simulations (MD), and thermodynamics. • The candidate should have a significant experience in classical molecular simulations (all-atom and/or coarse-grained). • The candidate should have experience in coding in python/C/C++ and experience of the Linux environment. Desirable qualification • Expertise in self-assembly and aggregation thermodynamics of amphiphilic molecules like surfactants, polymers, and lipids is desirable. • Additional experience in Enhance Sampling methods (such as metadynamics, umbrella sampling, FFS), force-field generation, coarse-graining, and machine-learning modelling on polymers and surfactants would be desirable. • Experience in using molecular simulation software packages like GROMACS, PLUMED, LAMMPS, etc. Nature of Work The candidate would be responsible for performing all-atom and/or coarse-grained MD simulations on polymer/surfactant solutions wherein, the focus will be to investigate the change in water activity upon aggregation of polymer/surfactant molecules. The candidate would also be working with members of the group and will get an opportunity to collaborate on the subject with a company. The candidate will also have to guide the Ph.D. student and assist the PI in other research activities. Duration of Appointment • The appointment for the above posts initially will be for 1 year, which will be extended with mutual consent if performance of the candidate is good, • The post is purely temporary and on a contractual basis.
