The Reaction Dynamics Group, Department of Chemistry, University of Hawai’i at Manoa, invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the area of reaction dynamics and combustion chemistry. The prime directive of the experimental studies is to investigate the formation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) along with their hydrogen deficient precursors in combustion systems exploiting crossed molecular beams experiments. The appointment period is initially for one year, but can be renewed annually based on availability of funds and satisfactory progress. The salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. Successful applicants should have a strong background in one or more of the following: experimental reaction dynamics, molecular beams, combustion chemistry, UHV technology, pulsed laser systems. Solid communication skills in English (written, oral), a publication record in internationally circulated, peer-reviewed journals, and willingness to work in a team are mandatory. Only self-motivated and energetic candidates are encouraged to apply. Please send a letter of interest, three letters of recommendation, CV, and publication list to Prof. Ralf I. Kaiser, Department of Chemistry, University of Hawai’i at Manoa, Honolulu, HI 96822-2275, USA [firstname.lastname@example.org]. The review of applications will start March 1, 2018, and continues until the position is filled.
