The project implies use of molecular simulations to compute properties of nanomaterials (descriptors) that can be predictively linked to nanomaterials functionality, exposure and hazard, and be used in future in silico Integrated Approach to Testing and Assessment of the environmental health and safety of nanomaterials. The methodology includes molecular dynamics, metadynamics and quantum-chemical computations. The development of code/software for modeling and analysis is one of the tasks. The project is financed by Horizon2020 projects SmartNanoTox and NanoSolveIT.
The position involves research in the areas described above.
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.
The degree should have been completed no more than three years before the deadline for applications. An older degree may be acceptable under special circumstances, which may involve sick leave, parental leave, clinical attachment, elected positions in trade unions, or similar.
In the appointment process, special attention will be given to research skill. The applicant should have experience in research in computational chemistry and molecular simulations. Ability to program in languages such as Fortran, C/C ++, Python is a requirement. Strong theoretical background in computational chemistry and statistical thermodynamics, experience in the use of different computational chemistry software, experience in biomolecular research are advantageous. The choice of candidate will be based on documented theoretical knowledge relevant to the area, knowledge of and experience in using of programs and theoretical methods, analytic ability, ability to work in group as well as independently, personal involvement.
