Computational/Theoretical HEDP Research Associate, LLE, University of Rochester

The HEDP-Theory Group in LLE’s Theoretical Division seeks a computational/theoretical physicist to carry out rigorous and high-impact researches in high-energy-density science important to both ICF and basic science. The successful candidate will focus on the development of exchange-correlation free-energy density functionals for density-functional theory (DFT), software implementation and their applications to matter at warm-dense conditions by means of ab-initio molecular dynamics simulations and Kubo-Greenwood approach to characterize the equation of state, transport and optical properties of materials under extreme conditions. This project, mainly funded by NSF, offers a competitive salary which will be commensurate with experience and qualifications. Close collaborations between HED theorists and experimentalists are being actively pursued at LLE. Experience with DFT codes such as Quantum-Espresso/ABINIT/VASP, as well as good interpersonal skills, the willingness to work in a team, and the ability to communicate well in writing are desirable. A Ph.D. in quantum many-body physics, atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter physics, plasma physics, or a related area is required. This Research Associate position is available immediately and applications will be considered until the position is filled. Interested applicants should submit a dossier that includes a cover letter outlining how the applicant sees himself/herself contributing to the research project, CV and a list of publications. The applicant should arrange for at least two letters of recommendation to be sent to [email protected]. Candidates are invited to apply online at Please apply to Job Opening ID 210615.
