Subject: 20.01.03 Postdoc, Theoretical/Comp. Chemistry, NYU Shanghai, China
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the group of 
Prof. William Glover at NYU Shanghai. Research projects include developing 
and using multiphysics excited-state ab initio dynamics methods to 
understand the response of biological molecules to radiation spanning the 
visible to X-ray regions. Particular systems of interest include 
fluorescent proteins, DNA, solvated electrons, and photosynthetic 
light-harvesting complexes. An emphasis of this work is in making direct 
connection to experiment by simulating ultrafast observables. To achieve 
these goals, we develop cutting-edge computational tools, including 
Graphical Processing Unit (GPU)-based quantum chemistry code. More details 
can be found at

Research at NYU Shanghai is supported by the Center for Computational 
Chemistry, a research institute operated jointly by NYU, NYU Shanghai, 
and East China Normal University (ECNU). The center has a core group of 
faculty members who are conducting frontier research in various fields 
of theoretical/computational chemistry, biology, and materials science.

Candidates should have the following qualifications:
* Ph.D. in Chemistry or Physics or related fields by the position start 
* Experience with electronic structure and/or dynamics, especially related 
  to excited states 
* Experience developing electronic structure and/or dynamics codes
* Strong command of written and spoken English

The ideal candidate will also have expertise in one or more of the 
following: excited-state electronic structure methods, analytical gradient 
theory, enhanced sampling methods, non-adiabatic dynamics.

The position is available immediately or upon agreement. Benefits and 
salary are competitive. The position term is for 12 months initially, 
with possibility of extension.

Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.  To be 
considered, applicants should submit a cover letter with a brief 
description of research accomplishments and interests, a curriculum vitae 
with a list of publications, and the names and contact information of at 
least two references to william.glover]_[
