Comscope, a BNL-based Computational Material Science Center is a multi-institutional effort (involving Brookhaven National Laboratories, Rutgers University, University of Virginia, University of Tennessee, and Ames Laboratories) to develop and disseminate methodologies (theory, algorithms, and codes) to accurately describe the physical properties of complex strongly correlated materials. It was launched in September 2015 and its aim is to accelerate scientific progress in materials research by enabling theoretical spectroscopy and theoretically guided material design to correlated electron systems.
To aid in the effort we are looking for highly motivated individuals with a strong technical background in one of the following fields: applied mathematics, theoretical chemistry, computer science, theoretical condensed matter physics or materials science.
These positions are based at BNL but will involve close interactions with other scientists in the center. Applications consisting of a cover letter, curriculum vitae with publication list, a brief (1-2 page) description of research interests and accomplishments, and three letters of recommendation should be submitted to through the BNL website. Please indicate in your cover letter when you would be available to begin employment. Review of applications will commence immediately and continue until the position is filled. Members of underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
Applicants are encouraged to contact Dr. Robert Konik (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Prof. Gabriel Kotliar (email@example.com) for further information.
At Brookhaven National Laboratory we believe that a comprehensive employee benefits program is an important and meaningful part of the compensation employees receive. Our benefits program includes but is not limited to:
Swimming Pool, Weight room Tennis Courts, and many other employee perks and benefits.
