Collaborative postdoc @ TAMU / UChicago

Daniel Tabor of Texas A&M with Juan de Pablo of University of Chicago are currently seeking a joint postdoctoral researcher to work on theoretical and computational modeling and design of metal-free, radical-polymer-based batteries. The postdoctoral researcher will join an interdisciplinary team of theorists and experimentalists from Texas A&M University (Jodie Lutkenhaus and Daniel Tabor Groups) and the University of Chicago (Stuart Rowan and Juan de Pablo groups).

The computational components of the project include high-throughput quantum chemistry, molecular simulation, coarse-grained simulation, developing representations for molecules, polymers, and inverse design algorithms for organic materials that satisfy multiple design objectives.

The candidate should have a strong background in theoretical and computational chemistry and have interests and/or experience in multiscale simulation, machine learning, and integration of computational and theoretical data with high-throughput experimental data.

The postdoc will spend residence time both at Texas A&M University with the Tabor group and the University of Chicago with the de Pablo group. The exact logistics are flexible based on the needs of the candidate. The position is supported by an NSF DMREF grant for up to 2 years.

The position is available to be filled as soon as possible. Please apply by email to, including your CV, a cover letter, and reference contact information. As always, be sure to mention that you saw this post on!
