We are aiming at novel theoretical/computational/data-driven AI researches of condensed matter and molecular systems in the energy and environmental issues. I believe that “motivation, patience, objectivity, flexibility, cooperativeness” is important for doing the cutting-edge researches. The academic carrier so far of the applicant does not matter. However, experiences of either first-principles, quantum chemistry, or classic force fields calculation or machine learning analysis are desirable. We are also ready to have various types of collaborations with companies, including technology transfer. For more information, please feel free to contact with GL. Prof./Dr. Yoshitaka Tateyama.
