Welcome to the Staroverov Group Website
We develop theoretical methods and computer programs for studying the electronic structure, physical properties, and chemical reactions of molecules and solids. The focus of our activities is on the KohnSham density-functional method, particularly on designing new density-functional approximations in terms of KohnSham effective potentials. We also use electronic structure methods to solve practical problems of chemistry, spectroscopy, and materials science.
One postdoc position is available to start in 2015 or 2016. The research area is broadly defined as development of electronic structure methods. The candidate should have (or expect) a PhD in theoretical chemistry or physics. Code development experience with at least one quantum chemistry package is a must. Qualified candidates are encouraged to contact me by e-mail for further details.
Accepting Graduate Students
All students admitted to our graduate program receive full financial support. In addition, external scholarships of up to $50,000 per year (Vanier, Trillium, OGS, and others) are available to strong applicants, both from Canada and abroad. If you have a strong academic record and wish to join my group, I will be happy to nominate you and support your application for these scholarships. I encourage you to contact me for further details.
