Opening for a Postdoctoral Position in the Siepmann Research Group at the University of Minnesota

This position is funded from various grants and the research involves particle-based simulations of chromatographic systems, interfaces of polymeric systems, solubilities of pharmaceutical and other organic solids, atmospheric nucleation, and the development of efficient Monte Carlo algorithms and transferable force fields.

The appointment is initially for a 12-month period, but can be extended upon mutual agreement.  The starting date can be as early as August 1, 2009, and should not be later than November 1, 2009.  Since part of this research is funded through NSF GOALI grants, there may also be the opportunity for an internship at Rohm & Haas Co or 3M Co.
