Applications are invited for the position of Research Associate (Postdoctoral Fellow) in the research group of Kaustubh Rane at the Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar (IITGN) on a research project funded by the National Supercomputing Mission. The title of the project is “Developing an efficient algorithm for the Transition matrix Monte Carlo simulations of molecular systems in the generalized ensembles.”
About the Project
The project will involve adapting the transition matrix Monte Carlo (TMMC) algorithm for exascale computing facilities. It will also include developing computer programs to apply TMMC to wide range of molecular and nanoscale systems that can benefit from the Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulations and advanced sampling techniques. The postdoc will be provided a suitable amount of intellectual freedom while pursuing the above topics.
Ph.D. (graduated or submitted Thesis) in any of the following or related branches: Chemical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Chemistry, Mathematics, mechanical engineering, and Material Science. The applicant should have expertise in developing the MCMC- based algorithms or applying them in their research projects. The applicant should be proficient in computer programming and should be experienced in performing simulations/calculations using high-performance computing (HPC) systems. The experience in developing applications for HPC systems is desirable. Finally, the applicant should be driven, enthusiastic about research, and willing to work for the duration of the contract.
Interested candidates are requested to send the following documents via email to kaustubhrane[at]iitgn.ac.in :
- Resume containing the date of birth, all qualifications, experience, contact details (Email and phone number)
- One-page summary of doctoral research
- List of publications,
- Two letters of recommendation emailed directly by the referees to the above email id.
The applications will be screened until the position is filled. The shortlisted candidates will be interviewed online.
Consolidated Monthly Pay: ₹ 47,000 to 50,000 based on qualifications/experience
