Subject: 22.05.20 Postdoc/staff scientist opening in Univ. of California, Riverside & Berkeley National Laboratories
A new postdoctoral or staff scientist position is available immediately 
in the computational chemistry/physics and materials science group of 
Prof. Bryan M. Wong at the University of California-Riverside (to be 
jointly working with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories).

We are an extremely productive and highly-published multidisciplinary 
group located in sunny California (close to Los Angeles). We are focused 
on 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:

http://www.bmwong-group.com

Job description: For this position, the postdoctoral associate/staff 
scientist will assist in carrying out research in non-adiabatic dynamics 
and time-dependent density functional theory on periodic systems or 
solvated environments.

Our group has additional funded projects in the following topics and the 
postdoc may also carry out research in the following areas (depending on 
the applicant's expertise): 

electronic-excited states
quantum computing and quantum information
DFTB (density functional tight binding) and metadynamics
machine learning for chemical/material systems

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 candidate has the option of working with collaborators at Lawrence 
Berkeley National Laboratories (LBNL) on our jointly-funded 
exascale/TD-DFT project: 
https://news.ucr.edu/articles/2021/07/20/using-light-control-materials. 
Depending on the candidate's interest, visits and working at LBNL are 
also possibilities.

The postdoc/staff scientist will:

Develop and run calculations using standard and non-standard ab initio and 
quantum codes.

Write journal articles on developed methods, calculations, and results.

Assist in the mentoring of graduate students.

Attend conferences and present work.

Salary will be commensurate with experience level (to be determined by the 
University of California pay scale)

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