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 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 https://wp.nyu.edu/glover.
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 https://research.shanghai.nyu.edu/chemistry.
Candidates should have the following qualifications:
Ph.D. in Chemistry or Physics or related fields by the position start date
Experience with electronic structure and/or dynamics, especially related to excited states
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.
