Hi all,

Just to inform you about the new openings in our team.

August 2011

Postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the theory group
of Professor Oleg Prezhdo.

(A) Excited State Dynamics in Nanoscale Materials.
Time-domain, atomistic simulation of excitation and electron transfer,
electron-phonon relaxation, spin
dynamics and related processes on nanoscale, including molecule-bulk
interfaces, semiconducting and
metallic quantum dots, carbon nanotubes and graphene nanoribbons, as
motivated by photovoltaics,
molecular electronics, spintronics, ultrafast spectroscopies, DNA
sequencing, laser therapies, etc.

(B) Non-Adiabatic Molecular Dynamics and Time-Dependent Density
Functional Theory.
Development and implementation of NAMD and TDDFT algorithms with the
aim at the applications
described in (A). Fundamental aspects of semiclassical physics,
coupling of quantum and classical (or
semiclassical) dynamics, system-bath interactions.

Interested candidates should submit their CVs, including a list of
