The Bennett Lab is hiring at every level: undergraduate researchers, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows. If you are interested in an undergraduate or graduate student position in the lab, please reach out to Prof. Bennett by e-mail

Post-Doctoral Research Position 


Applications are invited for the position of post-doctoral research fellow in the group of Prof. Doran Bennett in the Department of Chemistry at Southern Methodist University. The lab studies emergent properties in mesoscale quantum dynamics. As a new research group, there are a number of exciting research directions and the fellow would have the scope to engage in a variety of projects, including: 

  1. exploring the photophysics of molecular aggregates containing >1000 pigments - from synthetic tubular aggregates to multi-particle dynamics in singlet fission materials, and

  2. studying ultrafast processes in condensed phase photochemistry/catalysis.

  3. Non-linear spectroscopy in molecular materials


The post-doctoral fellow will have the opportunity to participate in open-source code development and to collaborate with an international team of scholars working at the forefront of quantum dynamics. Experience with quantum dynamics methods (e.g. master equations methods like Redfield theory) and scientific coding would be advantageous. Energetic candidates, excited to learn a broad array of new skills, are also encouraged to apply without regard to previous experience. 


Interested applicants are invited to submit their cover letter (or statement of interests), CV, and one representative publication by completing this form.
