Welcome to the Rubenstein Group at Brown University!

The Rubenstein Group is a theoretical chemistry group that applies both analytical and computational tools to explore a variety of problems in quantum chemistry, quantum physics, and biophysics. We currently focus upon developing new methodologies for studying problems in quantum and statistical mechanics, molecular and quantum computing, and biophysical simulation. The group welcomes summer students, high school students, undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral associates from diverse backgrounds who have the passion, creativity, and perseverance to solve complex problems. 

For more information about the Group and its Research, please visit the Research, Publications, People, and Events pages below. If you are a prospective undergraduate, graduate student, or post-doc interested in the group, please contact Professor Rubenstein expressing your intersts via email. We are always looking for interesting and passionate students! The group will have openings for 1-2 graduate students during the Fall 2019 admissions cycle as well as 1 postdoc with specialization in condensed matter physics and 1 postdoc with specialization in biomolecular simulation+machine learning during Fall 2019.
