A  POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE AT TEXAS A&M IN THEORETICAL CHEMISTRY

A postdoctoral position  is available in the research group of Professor Danny Yeager of the 
Chemistry Department at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, USA. The person hired will 
develop, test and implement new methods in theoretical chemistry. The focus of this research will be 
on complex scaling and CAP methods for electron-atom/molecule resonances and photoionization 
cross sections using multiconfigurational-based methods such as multiconfigurational self 
consistent field (MCSCF), multiconfigurational spin-tensor electron propagator (MCSTEP) and 
multiconfigurational linear response (MCLR). Applications of these methods will be to several 
systems of chemical, physical and biological  interest.

The applicant must have a Ph.D. in theoretical chemistry or physics with a strong background in math, 
quantum mechanics and large scale scientific computing including a working knowledge of fortran. 
Knowledge about quantum chemistry methods, second quantization, many-body Green's 
functions/propagator methods, and scattering theory is very useful -- although much of this 
knowledge can be acquired while post-docing. A working knowledge of large scale computational 
chemistry codes and some experience with code development would also be helpful with the latter 
being particularly important. 

Funding for these positions is through the Robert A. Welch Foundation. Their rules also specify: 
Postdoctoral fellows may receive funding for a total of five years in a postdoctoral position. This
may be five consecutive years or a cumulative sum equal to five years. However, the postdoctoral 
fellow may not receive Welch Foundation support for more than three years.

This position can start immediately but no later than 1 June 2017. The salary is negotiable and 
competitive. The initial length of the appointment is for at least one year with the possibility of 
extending this.

Applicants should email a letter of application, a curriculum vitae and a list of publications and 
should also cause three letters of recommendation to be emailed (from the recommender's email 
address and not from the applicant's email address please). The email address to send these is 
yeager,mail.chem.tamu.edu.

NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
All @ signs were changed to , to fight spam. Before you send e-mail, you need to change , to @
For example: change joe,big123comp.com to joe@big123comp.com
Please let your prospective employer know that you learned about the job from the Computational Chemistry List Job Listing at http://www.ccl.net/jobs. If you are not interested in this particular position yourself, pass it to someone who might be -- some day they may return the favor.
