Full Time
We seek to recruit an enthusiastic, highly motivated scientist with proven intellectual and technical abilities to work on a project in computational molecular quantum mechanics. The 3-year project, funded by the EPSRC, involves a collaboration between Prof Fred Manby (University of Bristol) and Prof Peter Knowles (University of Cardiff).

The overall focus of the programme is to develop a new computational framework for nonadiabatic molecular dynamics. The methodology is an integrated synthesis of molecular electronic structure methodology and quantum nuclear motion, and constitutes a significant new theory and software development. This post will focus strongly on extending established molecular electronic structure methods (full configuration interaction and coupled cluster theory), and will complement in close cooperation an additional post based at the University of Cardiff.

Applicants must hold a PhD in a relevant area of Theoretical Chemistry, or relevant industrial experience.
