This position involves research in the area of computational chemistry and will focus on the study of molecules and materials with complex electronic structure for applications in heavy element chemistry, information storage\/electronic devices, catalysis, and environmental sensors. The postdoctoral scholar will perform calculations using a variety of computational methods with emphasis in multiconfigurational wave function based methods, density functional theory, and molecular simulations (Monte Carlo and potentially some molecular dynamics). The ideal applicant will have significant experience in one or more of these areas with an interest to gain expertise in other methodologies and apply them to challenging systems. The postdoctoral researcher is expected to perform independent research, mentor junior group members, present work at scientific meetings, and prepare scientific publications. Through this position, the postdoctoral researcher will gain skills in modeling complex electronic structure beyond DFT, combining quantum chemistry with molecular simulations (Monte Carlo), collaborating with both computational and experimental groups, and opportunities for professional development. Supported by Chemistry Department, the University of South Dakota, and the South Dakota Board of Regents, Dr. Vlaisavljevich\u2019s computational laboratory has access to USD\u2019s high-performance computational resources (e.g. Lawrence Supercomputer) and a variety of quantum chemical software packages.
