Subject: 22.07.04 Postdoc position in Theory/Comp Chemistry at NYU Shanghai, China
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the group of Prof. William Glover at NYU Shanghai 
to develop polarizable embedding methodology to simulate photoexcited charge-transfer (CT) dynamics 
in multichromophoric systems. The specifics of the project are to achieve linear scaling in the 
integral-exact direct reaction field method, developed by our group in and The 
methodology will be applied to address the origins of high efficiency and unidirectionality in the primary 
CT reactions of the purple bacteria reaction center ( 
Much of the development utilizes Graphical Processing Unit (GPU)-based quantum chemistry code. 
The project is funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China. More details can be found 

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. More details can be found at

Candidates should have the following qualifications:
*  Ph.D. in Chemistry or Physics or related fields by the position start date
*  Experience with molecular/quantum dynamics
*  Experience developing electronic structure code
*  Strong command of written and spoken English

Competitive candidates will also have expertise in one or more of the following: polarizable embedding, 
excited-state electronic structure methods, analytical gradient theory, diabatization methods. 
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
