A postdoctorial position at the Department of Physics is immediately available in the area of theoretical modelling of photovoltaic materials and related simulations of X-ray spectra.
The research interests in the Molecular Dynamics Quantum Chemistry group range from accurate quantum mechanical studies of small molecules to realistic simulations of eletrolyte solutions and photovoltaic materials. New approaches for spectrum simulations are developed with state-of-the-art quantum chemistry, and in particlar dynamical effects on chemical and electronic processes are investigated.
The purpose of the project is to contribute to the development of improved photovoltaics though material characterisation and theoretical investigations of mechanisms for excited state dynamics, charge carrier dynamics and energy transfer. The sucessful candidate will be working with a combination of modern quantum chemistry and initio molecular dynamics simulations. The candidate will also interact with the two PhD students in the group presently working within this project.
Depending on the research background of the candidate, the project may take different directions. Either with focus on realistic modelling of photovoltaic materials and their interfaces and dynamical processes therein, or with focus on accurate simulations of spectroscopic observables in these systems.
Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country.
