Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge?

Do you have an established background in numerical methods of multidimentional quantum mechanics and ultrafast dynamics of nonadiabatic reactions?

Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive universities?

We are looking for a Research Fellow to join our EPSRC funded project, ‘A fully quantum theory of ultrafast chemical dynamics’. The project is focused on the development and applications of new methods of simulations of reaction dynamics of ultrafast processes. It develops and applies methods of ab initio Multiple Spawning and Multiconfigurational Ehrenfest developed in our group. In particular, we are interested in photodetachment of H atom from small heteroaromatic molecules.You will have a PhD in Chemistry or a closely allied discipline, or will have submitted your thesis before taking up the post.

You will also have experience in computational methods of quantum mechanics, in particular AIMC, MCE and CCS, and good computer programming skills.In addition, you will have the ability to conduct independent research and a developing track record of publications in international journals, as well as excellent communication, planning and team working skills.
