Postdoctoral Position at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (UNCLASSIFIED)

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }
A postdoctoral position is anticipated
at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory at Aberdeen Proving Ground,

This position will involve the
implementation and use of particle-based computational methods for
the study of polymeric materials under electromagnetic fields. The
successful candidate will investigate the effect of E-M fields on the
structure, thermodynamics, transport, and mechanics of polymers at
the atomistic and meso-scales. Experience with one or more particle simulation
methods (e.g., DFT, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, dissipative
particle dynamics) is required. Significant extension of molecular
dynamics software is needed for this project, thus previous
experience in scientific software development is highly desirable.
Experience with LAMMPS or ab initio methods is desirable, but not

Candidates must be U.S. citizens that
have completed a doctorate degree in material science, chemical or
mechanical engineering, chemistry, physics, or a closely related
field before the start date.

The successful candidate will work
closely with computational scientists and experimentalists at ARL. Excellent opportunities exist to interact with other government
laboratories and university researchers. Salary is commensurate with
experience and skills, and is very competitive with industry.
Publication and patenting of research results are encouraged.

Aberdeen Proving Ground is 30 minutes
north of Baltimore, and offers easy access to Washington D.C.,
Philadelphia, and New York City.
