Postdoctoral Position Available at Northwestern University

keten's picture

A postdoctoral associate position is available immediately at the Computational Nanodynamics Group at Northwestern University. This research project focuses broadly on the atomistic and meso-scale modeling of biomolecular materials and their interfaces with engineered polymers. Nanostructural predictions, self-assembly studies, and simulations of mechanofunctional behavior constitute the scope of the project. The post-doctoral researcher will have the opportunity to investigate diverse issues related to self-assembly and mechanics phenomena in nanostructured hybrid materials that blend the best aspects of biological systems and engineered polymers. The project is highly interdisciplinary and involves collaborations within the research group, as well as externally with experimental groups across Northwestern University and other institutions.  A Ph.D. in engineering, materials science, chemistry, physics or a related field is required for this position. Expertise in atomistic and multiscale modeling methods (molecular dynamics, density functional theory, coarse-grained molecular simulations) is required. Additionally, a strong background in biological physics and/or polymer physics is highly desired.

Please send a CV, a brief summary of research interests, contact information of 3 references, and your most relevant publication as a single pdf file to Evaluations will begin immediately, and the expected start date is September 2013 or later.

Feel free to contact Prof. Sinan Keten ( for further inquiry.
