Postdoc position in multiscale method development for electrocatalysis at Louisiana State University

#1 Post by craig_plaisance1 » Tue Jun 29, 2021 9:19 pm

Development and application of an integrated multiscale methodology for simulating electrocatalysis at the metal-oxide/electrolyte interface

This postdoc position is funded by the US Department of Energy Early Career Award received by Prof. Craig Plaisance in the Chemical Engineering Department at Louisiana State University

Job Description:
This individual will perform research related to the development and application of an integrated multiscale methodology for simulating electrocatalysis at the metal-oxide/electrolyte interface. This will involve formulation and bench marking of the general methodology within the framework of a prototype code, followed by integration within the LAMMPS and VASP simulation codes. After successful implementation, the individual will apply the method to study the oxygen evolution reaction on metal oxide surfaces.

70% - Develop and apply an integrated multiscale methodology for simulating electrocatalysis at the metal-oxide/electrolyte interface within the LAMMPS and VASP simulation codes

20% - Write manuscripts and support proposal writing and reports on various projects

10% - Mentor students and participate in collaborations

Minimum Qualifications:

PhD in Chemical Engineering, Physics, Materials Science and Engineering, and Chemistry or equivalent

Candidates with a strong background and publications in method development related to quantum chemical, density functional theory, or molecular simulation method development. In addition, a theoretical understanding of electrocatalysis or catalysis at the mechanistic and quantum chemical level is desirable. Experience with programming in Fortran 90 is a plus.
