A new postdoctoral position is available immediately in the computational chemistry/physics 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/physics and material science of quantum-mechanical systems. A website of our interests and publications can be found at:


Job description: For this position, the postdoctoral associate will assist in carrying out research in one (or several, depending the on applicant's expertise) of our various funded projects:

time-dependent DFT, electronic-excited states
non-adiabatic dynamics
machine learning for chemical/material systems
DFTB (density functional tight binding) and metadynamics

Specific expertise in these areas is *not* an explicit requirement (although it is helpful), and more importance will be placed on the applicant's expertise in understanding contemporary electronic structure methods and/or methodological development with first-principles quantum methods.

The postdoc will:

Develop and run calculations using standard and non-standard ab initio and quantum codes.
Modify, develop code as needed using Fortran, C, or Python.
Write journal articles on developed methods, calculations, and results.
Assist in the mentoring of graduate students.
Attend conferences and present work.

To apply, please send a full CV and concise description of your expertise to Prof. Bryan Wong at bryan.wong (at) ucr.edu
