Overview: The Chemical Sciences Division (CSD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) invites outstanding applications for a postdoctoral research associate to simulate mineral precipitation reactions using atomic-scale and/or coarse-grained molecular simulations. As a postdoc, you will utilize high performance computing at ORNL to work with a team of scientists in the CSD to model chemical reactions important for mineral nucleation and growth processes, and incorporate that mechanistic information into models that can describe rates and locales of precipitation measured by experimentalists. The position resides in the Geochemistry and Interfacial Sciences Group in the Chemical Sciences Division, Physical Sciences Directorate (PSD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).
Applicants cannot have received their Ph.D. more than five years prior to the date of application and must complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment. The appointment length will be up to 24 months with the potential for extension. Initial appointments and extensions are subject to performance and availability of funding.
