Subject: 20.02.11 Open Postdoc/PhD positions at the University of Delaware, USA
Postdoctoral/PhD positions are available in the group of Alexei Kananenka 
at the University of Delaware, USA.

Our group focuses on theoretical and computational research at 
the interface of physics, chemistry, and biology:

Possible projects include the development of:
(1) theoretical methods and computational tools for condensed-phase 
    spectroscopy and nonadiabatic dynamics

(2) density functional approximations

(3) machine-learning tools for quantum dynamics, electronic structure 
    calculations, and material science

(4) force fields for molecular dynamics simulations of systems with 
    significant intermolecular interactions (e.g. hydrogen bonding).

Projects may be carried out in close collaboration with experimental groups.

Candidate Requirements:

Postdocs: Candidates must hold a PhD degree in Physics, Chemistry, 
Biophysics, Theoretical/Computational Chemistry.
The successful candidate will be creative, ambitious, motivated, and able 
to work independently. Strong background in electronic structure method 
development, or molecular (quantum-classical) dynamics as well as strong 
programming skills are essential. Experience with machine learning 
software is a plus.

PhD students: Graduate students may enter the PhD program after 
successfully completing an M.S. degree program or may be admitted directly 
to the PhD program after a Bachelor's degree. Successful candidates will 
be highly creative, ambitious, and motivated. Good programming skills and 
some knowledge about electronic structure theory, molecular dynamics
and machine learning is an advantage.
