A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the computational chemistry and materials science group of Prof. Bryan M. Wong at the University of California-Riverside.

We are an extremely productive and highly-published multidisciplinary group located in sunny southern California, with an interest in both method development and application in the chemistry and material science of large systems. A website of our interests and publications can be found at:


Job description: The postdoctoral associate will develop new electronic structure methods for density functional tight binding (DFTB) theory to improve its accuracy as well as understand the theoretical limits of the DFTB approach. Additional responsibilities include development and simulation of the generation, evolution, and dynamics of electronic excitations in molecules, condensed phases, and nanoscale materials with first principles methods such as real-time time-dependent density functional theory (RT-TDDFT).

The postdoc will:

Modify, develop code as needed using Fortran, C, and/or CUDA.
Run calculations using standard and non-standard ab initio and quantum codes.
Write journal articles on developed methods, calculations, and results.
Attend conferences and present work.
