Postdoc position, McGill university: electronic structure methods for nanoscale simulations
rusta... at gmail.com
Thu Dec 17 22:27:31 CET 2015
We would like to invite applications for a postdoctoral position in the
area of nanoscale ab initio simulations. The program focuses on the:
* *development* of new electronic structure methods for molecular dynamics
simulations in the ground and excited electronic states,
* *implementation* of the new methods in the massively-parallel CP2K
simulation package, and
* subsequent *application* of the new simulation tools to study basic
energy conversion processes in nanomaterials.
Candidates (with a Ph.D. degree in physics, computer science, applied
mathematics, materials science, chemistry, or a related discipline) are
expected to demonstrate solid knowledge of electronic structure theory
(e.g. DFT), parallel programming (e.g. C++/MPI), and optimization
techniques (e.g. PCG).
Research in our group <http://www.khaliullin.com/> is broadly
interdisciplinary: we utilize methods of quantum and statistical mechanics,
modern tools of applied mathematics and recent achievements in
high-performance computing to make impact in the fields of chemistry and
materials science. The group is a part of the Department of Chemistry
<https://www.mcgill.ca/chemistry/home> in McGill University
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McGill_University>. McGill, consistently ranked
among the top global universities
in 2015), is located in Downtown Montreal
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montreal> - one of the most vibrant
scientific, cultural, industrial and economic centers in North America.
Please send your application with a CV to Prof. Rustam Khaliullin at
