The Maitra Group welcomes students and researchers interested in theoretical methods for the dynamics of correlated electrons, ions, and photons.
Posting Open Date: 07/06/2021
Neepa Maitra’s group, Department of Physics, at Rutgers University-Newark, seeks a Post-Doctoral Associate to work on the development of theoretical methods for excitations and dynamics of molecules. Projects involve functional development in time-dependent density functional theory, methods and applications of non-adiabatic dynamics based on the exact factorization approach, and applications to polaritonic chemistry. Anticipated begin date is September 1, 2021; appointment will be for one year, mutually renewable to two years.
Minimum Education and Experience
Candidate must have a Ph.D. in physics or theoretical chemistry, and some experience in density functional theory, non-adiabatic electron-ion dynamics, or polaritonic phenomena is strongly desirable.
A complete application includes a curriculum vitae, cover letter, research statement and the names and contact information of three references.
