We would like to invite applications for a postdoctoral position in the area of nanoscale ab initio simulations. The program focuses on the:
* development of new electronic structure methods for molecular dynamics simulations in the ground and excited electronic states,
* implementation of the new methods in the massively-parallel CP2K simulation package, and
* subsequent application of the new simulation tools to study basic energy conversion processes in nanomaterials.
Candidates (with a Ph.D. degree in physics, computer science, applied mathematics, materials science, chemistry, or a related discipline) are expected to demonstrate solid knowledge of electronic structure theory (e.g. DFT), parallel programming (e.g. C++/MPI), and optimization techniques (e.g. PCG).
Research in our group is remarkably interdisciplinary: we utilize methods of quantum and statistical mechanics, modern tools of applied mathematics and recent achievements in high-performance computing to make impact in the fields of chemistry and materials science. The group is a part of the Department of Chemistry in McGill University. McGill, consistently ranked among the top global universities (#24-39 in 2015), is located in Downtown Montreal - one of the most vibrant scientific, cultural, industrial and economic centers in North America.
Please send your application with a CV to Prof. Rustam Khaliullin at apply201X@khaliullin.com
