Research Associate (Postdoctoral) Chemical and Biological Engineering Until filled

Requirements: Applicants must hold a PhD in a field related to chemical engineering, chemistry, industrial engineering, or similar fields. Strong computational skills, including experience in either molecular modeling (quantum chemical calculations and molecular dynamics simulations) and/or process modeling (process synthesis and simulation, optimization), are expected. The successful applicant will have strong writing and communication skills. Experience with separations technologies and thermodynamic property prediction will be viewed favorably. Applicants should provide (1) a letter summarizing research experience and interests, (2) a current CV, and (3) contact information for three references.

Job Duties: The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a top institution for research that involves the intersection of computing with engineering. We seek to fill a Research Associate (Postdoc) position with the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC). The postdoc will conduct research related to the design of solvent systems for liquid-liquid extraction. The valorization of lignocellulosic biomass requires separation technologies capable of recovering bioproducts with high efficacy and low cost. Liquid-liquid extraction is a promising separation technology, but it requires the identification of solvent systems capable of the effective separation of specific chemicals. Accordingly, we seek to develop a computational framework that would couple molecular modeling with process modeling to design optimal solvent systems for the separation of GLBRC-relevant bioproducts. The successful applicant will be independent, motivated, capable of working as part of a collaborative team, and will have substantial experience in computational modeling (including molecular and/or process modeling). The position will be located at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Madison, WI. The postdoc will be jointly supervised by Reid Van Lehn, who has expertise in molecular modeling for the prediction of thermodynamic properties, and Christos Maravelias, who has expertise in process modeling for the development of separations processes. We expect the postdoc to integrate these disparate computational techniques to develop broadly applicable liquid-phase separation methods that will be applicable to experimental efforts ongoing with the GLBRC. This exciting project will further involve extensive collaboration with experimentalists throughout GLBRC to improve the recovery of chemicals derived from biomass feedstocks.

Research Associate (Postdoctoral) Department of Psychology Dec 1 2019

Requirements: Post-Doctoral Position to Research Factors That Influence Cognitive Training Outcomes at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, UC Riverside and UC Irvine. C. Shawn Green (UW-Madison), Aaron Seitz (UC-Riverside) and Susanne Jaeggi (UC-Irvine) are seeking to hire a post-doctoral researcher to work on a project funded by the National Institute of Aging. The project is focused on investigating features of cognitive training that differentially lead to learning and transfer of learning in both young adults (college-aged individuals) as well as in older adults. The post-doctoral researcher is expected to take a lead role in the project, including setting up experiments, collecting and analyzing data, training and supervision of graduate students and undergraduate research assistants, and dissemination of results at conferences and in research publications. Successful candidates should have strong technical skills, including in data analysis (R preferred), management skills, creativity and a high-level of conscientiousness, as these are required to play a lead role in this sizable project. They should also have expertise in one or more of the following areas (and knowledge of the others): working memory, cognitive training, perceptual learning, and methods of assessing individual differences and effects of interventional studies. Experience in programming psychophysical experiments, in either MATLAB or Python, is preferred. Researchers must possess a doctoral degree in Psychology, Education, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, or a related field. The primary appointment will be at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Learning and Transfer Lab of C. Shawn Green (https://greenlab.psych.wisc.edu/). The lab's broad focus is to examine factors that alter the rate and generality of learning in both the perceptual and cognitive domains. The University of Wisconsin offers excellent benefits. Salary is based on research experience. The initial appointment is for 1 year with a possibility of extension. Furthermore, although the postdoc's primary location will be at UW-Madison, the postdoc will also spend time on the UCR and UCI campuses and work closely with both Seitz and Jaeggi to insure that procedures are coordinated between all three sites and that all personnel are properly trained and supervised. At UCR (Seitz), the project will fall under the purview of the Brain Game Center, whose mission is to research, test, and disseminate evidence-based, scientifically optimized brain fitness games that transfer benefits to real-life activities. The Center has recently moved into a 3000 square foot facility that provides an ideal environment for the proposed work with a staff of full time research coordinators, full time programmers and a team of postdocs, graduate students, and an army of research assistants that facilitates the development, testing and dissemination of brain training games and cognitive assessment tools. The Brain Game Center is the only university-based research center focused on research of brain training games, and it has a track record of making tested procedures publically available so that people can try them out for themselves. At UCI (Jaeggi), the project will fall under the purview of the Working Memory and Plasticity Lab (http://wmp.education.uci.edu) whose mission lies in the development of working memory interventions for populations across the lifespan, with the aim to understand the underlying cognitive and neural mechanisms that drive training-related changes using behavioral and neuroimaging methods, as well as transcranial electrical stimulation. The WMP lab currently employs 3 full-time research coordinators, as well as a team of undergraduate research assistants, and graduate students and post-docs from both the School of Education and the Department of Cognitive Sciences, and there is a host of ongoing national and international research collaborations providing opportunities for networking and intellectual exchange. Candidates should send a cover letter, CV, relevant publications, and the names of three references with phone numbers and email addresses to: C. Shawn Green (cshawn.green@wisc.edu). The ideal starting time for the position would be early 2020 (although earlier state dates will be considered depending on availability). Thus, individuals planning to complete their dissertation during the Fall 2019 semester are encouraged to apply. Review of materials will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
