Chemical Theory Center
Associate Professor Sapna Sarupria is joining the Chemical Theory Center starting Fall 2021. The central theme encompassing her research involves developing cutting-edge sampling techniques in molecular simulations and applying them in understanding long-standing problems in condensed matter. Welcome, Prof. Sarupria! Read more.
“Never lose faith in yourself.” This is an important phrase to Xuelan Wen, who is about to start the next big step of her academic career. Xuelan is a recent alum from the Goodpaster group after defending her thesis entitled: "Projection-based Quantum Embedding for Excited States in Molecules and Solids” on December 3. She will soon start a postdoctoral researcher position with Prof. Emily Carter at Princeton University. While in the Chemical Theory Center, Xuelan worked on WF-in-DFT quantum embedding for method development. Read the full profile here.

The 2-year project is part of a large consortium of a multi-institutional and multi-disciplinary national research program. The overall focus of the programme is to increase the circularity of C-based molecules present in waste by transforming these molecules to valuable olefines. The research associate will be closely working with experimental collaborators. Applicants must hold a postgraduate degree at PhD level in in a relevant area of Computational Materials Chemistry, or relevant industrial experience. Applications are due February 4.
