Wayne State University: A postdoctoral position in theoretical quantum chemical dynamics is available immediately at Wayne State University. One focus of the research is the exploitation of scalable parallel computing in quantum wavepacket dynamics in order to extend the size and complexity of the systems that can be studied accurately. Parallel algorithms will be developed, implemented and applied to several interesting and computationally challenging chemical systems. Send materials to: Evelyn Goldfield, Dept. of Chemistry, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI 48202, USA. Contact her directly by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone me at 313-577-2580. My fax number is 313-577-2554. Further information about Wayne State University can be found on the world wide web at http://www.wayne.edu/.
University of Illinois, Urbana, IL: Postdoctoral position to develop novel theoretical and computational methods for simulating the quantum dynamics of large molecules, clusters and condensed phases. See web page at www.scs.uiuc.edu/~makri.
Postdoctoral Research Associate in Experimental Positron Physics Department of Physics at University College, London: Astronomy. An EPSRC funded Postdoctoral Research Assistantship in Experimental Position Physics is available for a period of up to 24 months. The post is to work with Dr Gaetana Laricchia on positron and positronium collisions with atoms and molecules. The project would suit a candidate with a background in experimental positron physics and/or atomic and molecular physics. Further information can be obtained from: Dr Gaetana Laricchia, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University College London Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT, UK, email@example.com,
