Today's Webinar
Recipe for Cooking New Materials
The MADE in SC weekly seminar series has featured presentations by students and faculty. Last week's presentations were delivered by Dr. Olga Kuksenok, Dr. Angela Alexander-Bryant, and Dr. Ying Mei, all of Clemson University.

This week's presentation (today, Thursday, August 13th) will be delivered by Dr. Jianjun Hu of the University of South Carolina. Dr. Hu's presentation will be "Cooking new materials using data-driven machine learning algorithms." The webinar is today at 2 PM. If you are not a member of the MADE in SC project but wish to attend the seminars, please contact Denise White to register.

Dr. Jianjun Hu is an Associate professor in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of South Carolina. He contributes to research in the MADE in SC multiscale Modeling and Computation Core (MCC) research focus. His research focuses on deep learning, data mining and their applications in audio processing, material informatics, bioinformatics, and health informatics. Dr. Hu earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science in the area of machine learning and particularly evolutionary computation at the Genetic Algorithm Research and Application Group (GARAGe) of Michigan State University. His dissertation focused on sustainable evolutionary computation algorithms and automated computational synthesis. He served as Postdoc at Purdue University Computational Molecular Biology Division at the University of Southern California.

Winthrop University
Immediate Adjunct Opening
Winthrop University is seeking a part-time Physics Instructor beginning August 2020 to teach laboratory courses in General Physics and Physics with Calculus during the Fall 2020 semester. Continued employment for Spring 2021 is available, with physics laboratory and lecture course load to be determined. The part-time instructor works closely with two full-time physics faculty members. Successful candidates must have at least a Master’s degree and a minimum of 18 graduate credit hours in physics. Previous teaching experience at the university level is strongly preferred; experience with distance learning would be advantageous. Candidates should e-mail Dr. Robin Lammi to express their interest; please attach a current CV and include unofficial graduate transcripts, if available.
