12-months post-doctoral position in Madrid, starting on September, 2012: Theoretical calculations of the fragmentation of molecules and clusters
The research project:
The candidate will study the fragmentation of molecules and clusters using both statistical mechanics methods and ab-initio molecular dynamics (CPMD and TDDFT).
The candidate will work with the groups of Manuel Alcami and Fernando Martin (http://www.uam.es/quimica/spline) in the Department of Chemistry of the University Autónoma of Madrid.
The groups work in a wide range of topics (lasers/molecule interactions, surface chemistry, ion-molecule reactions, gas phase chemistry...) in a very active and international atmosphere. Currently we have open collaborations with several experimental and theoretical groups in Europe.
- PhD in theoretical chemistry, physics or similar fields
- Experience in electronic structure calculations, statistical mechanics methods and/or molecular dynamics (CPMD or TDDFT)
- Programming experience in Fortran
The position will ideally start in September 2012 and will be funded for one year. Gross salary (before applying national income taxes) is 27.000 Euros/year (net salary around 1.700 Euros/month depending on personal situation).
