The Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at the University of South Alabama invites applications for two Postdoctoral positions (one computational and one experimental) with the newly developed Alabama Advanced Solvents Cluster (AASC). The positions are for one year and are renewable based on funding availability and performance.

Position 1:
This research project aims to understand the separation of aromatic/aliphatic mixtures using ionic liquids. The postdoctoral researcher will perform molecular simulations and equation of state modeling to understand the molecular-level interactions driving separation. This work will be done in close collaboration with a large interdisciplinary team of experimental scientists.

Position Requirements
Required Knowledge, Skills and Experience:
-Applicants must have a recent PhD in physics/materials science/chemistry/chemical engineering or a related field.
-Strong background in molecular dynamics and thermodynamics is required.
-Knowledge of Monte Carlo methods is desirable. Previous experience in high-performance computing, programming, numerical methods, and data analysis are a plus.
-Applicants are required to have strong writing skills and oral communication skills.

Position 2:
In this project, the goal is to understand the molecular-level interaction which affect reactions in ionic liquids at elevated temperatures. The postdoctoral researcher will conduct laboratory experiments measuring reaction rates, product yields and related data. This work will be done in close collaboration with a large interdisciplinary team of experimental scientists.
Position Requirements
Required Knowledge, Skills and Experience:
-Applicants must have a recent PhD in chemical engineering, chemistry or a related field.
-Strong background in reaction kinetics and analysis is required.
-Experience using analytical techniques such as GC/MS, HPLC-MS and IR spectroscopy is highly desirable.
-Applicants are required to have strong writing and oral communication skills.

Inquiries and applications, including a CV and cover letter, should be emailed to chbepostdoc@southalabama.edu.

The University of South Alabama is one of the premier institutions for ionic liquid research in the world.
