Postdoc position Tokyio, first principles methods

A postdoctoral research position is open to develop the OpenMX software package ( for large-scale electronic structure calculations based on density functional theories (DFT).
The position is expected to start from April 1 st , 2016, and the mission is to develop highly efficient methods and codes for OpenMX to realize large-scale geometry optimization, molecular dynamics simulations, and electronic transport calculations. The position will be involved in the national project of Japan for development of the next generation supercomputer which is expected to appear in 2020.
The candidate should have considerable expertise and experience in method and code development (preferably C-language), and is expected to have interests on researches of materials science.
The researcher shall stay in Institute for Solid State Physics (ISSP) in Kashiwa, Japan.
