Candidates who have research experience developing & using electronic structure theory methods, or who have experience developing & using cavity quantum electrodynamics models are strongly encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will have experience developing scientific software; additional training in software development best practices and in the use of libraries for developing software for leadership computing facilities will be provided.Duties and Responsibilities:
A Postdoctoral Fellow (""postdoc"") is a professional apprenticeship designed to provide recent Ph.D. recipients with an opportunity to develop further the research skills acquired in their doctoral programs or to learn new research techniques, in preparation for an academic or research career. In the process of further developing their own research skills, it is expected that Postdoctoral Fellows will also play a significant role in the performance of research at the University and augment the role of graduate faculty in providing research instruction to graduate students. A Postdoctoral Fellow works under the supervision of a regular faculty member, who serves as a mentor to the Fellow, and it is expected that the faculty mentor will impart the realities, and variety, of scientific careers, and will encourage experiences outside the laboratory to broaden postdocs’ aspirations. Within the confines of the particular research focus assigned by that faculty member, the Postdoctoral Fellow functions with a considerable degree of independence and has the freedom (and is expected) to publish the results of his or her research or scholarship during the period of appointment. Thus, the role of Postdoctoral Fellows is clearly differentiated from full-time technical employees.Other Work/Responsibilities:
Postdoc appointments are characterized by all of the following conditions:
* the appointee was recently (within the last eight years) awarded a Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate (e.g., Sc.D., M.D.);
* the appointment is temporary;
* the appointment involves substantially full-time research or scholarship;
* the appointment is viewed as preparatory for a full-time academic and/or research career;
* the appointee works under the supervision of a faculty member; and
* the appointee has the freedom and is expected to publish the results of his or her research or scholarship during the period of appointment.
As an EOE/AA employer and an ADVANCE Institution that strives to create an
academic climate in which the dignity of all individuals is respected and maintained, the
University of North Carolina at Charlotte encourages applications from all
underrepresented groups. Applicants subject to criminal background check.
The candidate chosen for this position will be required to provide an official transcript
of their highest earned degree.
The postdoctoral fellow will work with a collaborative team with members at University of North Carolina Charlotte, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and University of Washington Seattle to deliver scalable many-body methods for elucidating the structure and dynamics of molecular polaritonic systems. The position will be located in Charlotte, North Carolina with travel support to UW and/or PNNL sites for investigators meetings and workshops. Specifically, the fellow will work as part of a team that will (1) develop a suite of theoretical frameworks, spanning low-order to high-level many-body methods, that will provide unprecedented ability to capture the structure and dynamics of molecular polaritonic systems, (2) deliver scalable software source code and libraries that can harness leadership-class computational facilities (LCFs), and (3) nurture a community of practitioners in computational molecular sciences.Proposed Hire Date:
