Harvard University Post-doctoral Fellow positions available for Chemistry and/or Physics Ph.D.'s to work in a project on the "Top-down Synthesis of Biologically Inspired Chemically Operated Systems" led by Dr. Juan Perez-Mercader in Harvard's Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences and within Harvard University's Origins of Life Initiative.
We have several positions available for recent Ph.D.'s to become involved in experimental work on (1) Chemically Induced Cooperative Phenomena, (2) the Study of the Physics of Polymersomes, (3) Polymerization Induced Self-assembly and (4) Oscillatory Chemical Reactions.
We also have positions in our group to work on (5) Computer Science Aspects of Chemical Systems. We are looking for individuals familiar with analytical as well as numerical experience in this (or an ancillary) topic and willing to establish a dialog with others already involved in ongoing experimental, theoretical and/or phenomenological work.
These positions will be initially awarded for one year and, contingent upon strong performance, may be renewed for up to two additional years. Those interested in applying are invited to send a copy of their CV, three letters of recommendation and a short (limited to one page) statement of his or her scientific interests to Juan Perez-Mercader (firstname.lastname@example.org). The three letters of recommendation must be sent directly from the authors to Juan Perez-Mercader.
