CCQ Job Opportunities

Summer Research Assistant/Associate, CCQ

The Center for Computational Quantum Physics invites applications for seasonal, full-time 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.

The Simons Foundation is committed to cultivating an inclusive work environment and provides equal opportunities to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, religion, color, age, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic disposition, neurodiversity, disability, veteran status, or any other protected category under federal, state and local law.

This is a paid position. The summer 2022 internship period is from June 1 to August 13. The deadline for applications is February 12, 2021.
