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.
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
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: developing excited-state electronic structure methods, analytical gradient theory, enhanced sampling methods, non-adiabatic dynamics.
The position is available immediately or upon agreement. Salary is commensurate with experience and starts at 200,000 CNY/year pre-tax and includes a competitive benefits package. 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.
