Job Description

We are seeking a post-doctoral fellow to be actively engaged in performing theory and simulation for BES funded Bio Materials program. We are looking for highly skilled simulators that are proficient with the tools of molecular simulation (molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo) and statistical mechanics of enhanced sampling and coarse graining to be applied to a molecular understanding of ion transport in the vicinity of functionalized pores The successful candidate will work closely with PNNL (Baer) and UW staff (Pfaendtner) to build a comprehensive molecular based program that allows the design of functional membranes based on the fundamentals of the solution response grounded in the hydrophobic effect. There will be opportunities to spend time at both institutions (UW/PNNL) and the details of this will be determined based on research progress and needs of the project.
