Molecular Dynamics Postdoctoral Researcher 
Opportunity with Los Alamos National Lab


The Physics and Chemistry of Materials group of the Theoretical Division
of Los Alamos National Laboratory is seeking candidates for one or more
postdoctoral positions in the areas of electronic structure theory,
principally density functional theory (DFT), and molecular dynamics (MD)
simulation with applications to complex fluids, warm dense matter, and
dense plasmas.

Candidates are sought for the development and application of next
generation quantum mechanical molecular dynamics simulation tools,
including: Orbital-free and Orbital-based DFT MD methods; Time-dependent
DFT methods for determining dynamic properties such as electrical
conductivities and stopping power; Associated algorithms for
massively-parallel hybrid compute architectures; and Develop analysis
tools for complex, correlated mixtures. 


Candidates must have received a Ph.D. in Physics, Chemistry, Applied
Mathematics, Computer Science, Materials Science, or an equivalent field
within the last 5 years. Demonstrated expertise within the fields of
electronic structure theory, quantum molecular dynamics, plasma theory,
or computer programming is highly desirable. 


Technical questions may be directed to Chris Ticknor
( and Lee Collins (
