We invite you to apply for a Postdoctoral Appointee position within our Chemical Sciences and Engineering Division (CSE).

In this role you will:

  • Apply theoretical chemical kinetics and chemical kinetic modeling to the study of gas-phase processes.
  • Utilize theoretical predictions to guide the development of coupled kinetic models with a view to interpreting gas phase reacting systems at high temperatures or highlyenergized/non-thermalenvironments.
  • Emphasis on the unimolecular and bimolecular kinetics of molecules relevant to combustion and atmospheric processes.
  • Perform theoretical calculations of the electronic structure and chemical kinetics forcombustion/atmosphericchemistry relevant reactions.
  • Maintain comprehensive knowledge of pertinent literature.
  • Develop new ideas, concepts, and/or research proposals to create programmatic growth and intellectual property for the Division.

Required Knowledge, Skills, and Experience:

  • Ability to use and/or develop in-house kinetics and UQ tools for interpreting coupled kinetics models to describe gas phase reactivity.
  • Ability to communicate effectively with the supervisor, peers and laboratory management through research reports, project presentations and other regular channels.
  • Demonstrated experience in at least one or more of the following areas: electronic structure theory, theoretical chemical kinetics and/or theoretical chemical dynamics,combustion/atmosphericchemistry.
  • Knowledge of gas phase chemical kinetics, chemical physics, physical chemistry, andcombustion/atmosphericchemistry.
  • Ability to Model Argonne's Core Values: Impact, Safety, Respect, Integrity, and Teamwork

As an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer, and in accordance with our core values of impact, safety, respect, integrity and teamwork, Argonne National Laboratory is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace that fosters collaborative scientific discovery and innovation.
