Postdoctoral Fellow in Physics: Multicomponent Real-Time TDDFT with Applications to Water

Postdoctoral Fellow in Physics: Multicomponent Real-Time TDDFT with Applications to Water

Stockholm University - Department of Physics

Stockholm, Sweden

Project description

We seek a postdoctoral Fellow to work on development and implementation of efficient approaches to simultaneous real-time wave function propagation of both protons and electrons in ab initio simulations of liquid water within a TD-ADFT framework. The target is to perform fully quantum, non-Born-Oppenheimer large-scale simulations of water including also the nuclear spin-coupling between the protons in the molecules. The project is funded through an ERC Advanced Grant (GAS-WAT) and focuses on determining the character and effects of structural fluctuations in liquid water. From both experiment and theory a two-state picture of water is emerging with fluctuations between high- (HDL) and low-density (LDL) local structures at ambient conditions. To what extent the nuclear spin-coupling contributes to this is unknown.

Main responsibilities

  • The position is a research position where the candidate is expected to contribute significantly to developing and applying techniques as stated above.

Qualification requirements

  • Postdoctoral Fellow positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a degree equivalent to a Swedish doctoral degree.

Assessment criteria

The degree must have been completed at latest before the employment decision is made, but no more than three years before the closing date. An older degree may be acceptable under special circumstances. Special reasons refer to sick leave, parental leave, elected positions in trade unions, service in the total defense, or other similar circumstances as well as clinical attachment or service/assignments relevant to the subject area.
