The Matthews group at SMU is currently hiring Postdoctoral Fellows and Ph.D. Students in theoretical and computational chemistry. Related experience in computer science, high-performance computing, physics, and mathematics is also welcome. Ph.D. students may already have a master's degree, but it is not required. Please send your CV to damatthews@smu.edu.


Our group focuses on using and developing accurate theoretical methods to study molecules, reactions, clusters, and extended systems. In particular, we specialize in ab initio (meaning "from the beginning") methods based on quantum mechanics, combining concepts and techniques from chemistry, physics, mathematics, and computer science.
