A position for a post-doctoral scholar is available in the computational chemistry and materials science group of Dr. Bryan M. Wong.


The candidate will carry out DFT calculations as well as develop new methods for understanding dynamic electronic effects in materials and nano-engineering for energy applications. The position will involve simulating the generation, evolution, and dynamics of electronic excitations in molecules, condensed phases, and nanoscale materials with first principles methods such as real-time time-dependent density functional theory (RT-TDDFT).


We are a highly-published multidisciplinary group with an interest in chemistry and material science of large systems. A website of our interests and publications can be found at:



The post-doctoral scholar will:


Run calculations using standard and non-standard ab initio and quantum codes.

Modify, develop code as needed using Fortran and/or C.

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

Attend conferences and present work.




A Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, applied math, engineering, or similar.

Experience with coding in Fortran and/or C

Experience with quantum chemistry and/or solid-state systems.

Familiarity with numerical routines for solving partial differential equations is a plus.
