Our work focuses on development and application of electronic structure methods to the study of both current (fossil-fuel based) and future (renewables based) energy systems. In particular we are interested in exploring mechanisms in both heterogeneous catalysis and photoactive materials that exploit multiple electronic states.

We are looking for postdoctoral researchers, graduate students and undergraduates interested in joining our team. If you want to engage in cutting-edge research supported by excellent infrastructure, please get in contact via the contacts page. We currently have an opening for a postdoctoral researcher to start as soon as possible (A full description of the job can be found at this link). Please send a cover letter, C.V., and contact information for two references to lee.thompson.1@louisville.edu or apply at the job description linked above.
