Theoretical and computational chemistry of environmental interfaces, nanoparticles, and metal oxide reactivity

The Mason Group uses theory and computation in molecular-level studies of interfaces, nanoparticles, and surfaces.  Our research targets issues related to the environment, nanomaterials, and energy. 

We are always looking for motivated researchers from all levels to join our team. 

People interested in graduate studies need to apply to the Ph.D. program:

Undergraduates can contact Prof. Mason directly about open positions.

While there are no immediate postdoc openings, highly qualified candidates are welcome to email Prof. Mason for consideration for future appointments.
