Sector: Academia

Compensation: Paid

Remote Position: No

Opportunity Description:

Postdoc Associate Position of Polymer Simulation (Atomsitic or/and Coarse-Grained MD) (Salary: $58K-60K; Duration: 2 years; Location: the Chemistry Department at the Stony Brook University) Essential Duties and Responsibilities: The Post-doc Associate will work in a multi-institutional effort to apply molecular simulation techniques to understand the underlying structure-function relationships in polymer filtration materials. Specifically, the project aims to study polymer interfacial crosslinking and polymer membranes using atomistic and coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations in combination with experimental synthesis and characterization tools. The position will be co-supervised by Prof. Benjamin Hsiao at Stony Brook University and Prof. Tao Wei at Howard University. Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities: PhD in materials science, chemical engineering, chemistry or physics, or a related field. Experience with molecular dynamic simulations (atomistic and coarse-grained), dissipative particle dynamics, and kinetic Monte Carlo methods. Experience with programming skills in Python, C++, C or Fortran. Experience with Gromacs, LAMMPS or other related simulation software and analyses of PDF, WAXS and SAXS. Ability to work effectively with a multidisciplinary team. Preferred Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities: Experience with coarse-grained forcefield parameter development. Experience with experimental synthesis and characterization of polymer membranes. Experience with polymer statistical mechanics theory. Experience with machine learning. Interested applicants should first send a detailed CV via email to Dr. Benjamin Hsiao ( and Dr. Tao Wei ( In the CV, please list your publications. The short-listed applicants will be contacted for an online interview. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
