Careers

Summer Research Assistant/Associate, CCQ
Full-time|New York, NY

The Center for Computational Quantum Physics (CCQ) seeks seasonal, full-time paid research interns interested in developing and implementing the concepts, algorithms and codes needed to understand the quantum mechanical behavior of many-particle systems, and to translate this understanding into useful predictions of the behavior of molecules and materials.
 
Under the mentorship of one or more CCQ scientists during the summer, Research Assistants/Associates will contribute to CCQ research by joining an ongoing research project. For more information about CCQ research, please visit: https://www.simonsfoundation.org/flatiron/center-for-computational-quantum-physics/.
 
Internship positions are intended for beginning graduate students or in some cases advanced undergraduates. Undergraduate students will be appointed with the title of Summer Research Assistant, while graduate students will be appointed with the title Summer Research Associate. Graduate students already embarked on a thesis project should consider applying to the Flatiron predoc program instead.

Flatiron Research Fellow, CCQ
Full-time|New York, NY

The Center for Computational Quantum Physics (CCQ) of the Simons Foundation’s Flatiron Institute invites applications for multiple Flatiron research fellow and Flatiron research fellow-software postdoctoral positions. The initial appointment is for two years with possible renewal for a third year. Starting dates are flexible, typically between August 2023 and November 2023. Applications will be reviewed beginning in fall 2022 and considered on a rolling basis until the positions are filled. For full consideration, application by October 17, 2022, is recommended.
 
Flatiron research fellows are scientists who have recently completed their Ph.D. and plan work on developing new concepts, algorithms and codes needed to understand the many-particle quantum problem, and on the physical and chemical properties of systems requiring this new understanding.
