Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) has a postdoctoral fellow opening to work in the field of large scale GW calculations based on full matrix formalism. This is to use a new approach and large scale computation to carry out accurate GW calculations. More specifically, plane wave expansion for the Green’s function, self-energy and other related quantities without diagonal approximation will be used. Self-consistent GW calculation can be done in a closed loop.  Beyond GW formalism including the vertex interactions will be considered.  This position involves the use of supercomputers to carry out large scale calculations and methodology development. Low ranking representation will be used to approximate the high dimensional tensors in order to carry out beyond GW calculations.  Another task is to develop force field for material growth simulations. These force fields could be based on traditional formalism (e.g., metal organic force field), or neural network force fields.  Different crystal and nanostructure growth processes in a solvent environment will be simulated using the developed force field. Close interaction with experiments groups is expected.  The hired person will work with Dr. Lin-Wang Wang in Material Science division of LBNL (, will also be part of the Center for Computational Study of Excited-States Phenomena in Energy Materials (C2SEPEM) (  Coding capability for large scale computation is essential, and strong back ground in solid state theory will be helpful. The candidate needs to have a Ph.D. degree in Physics or Material Science. Qualified applicant can apply on:
