A two year post-doctoral research assistant (PDRA) positions is available at The Open University to work in the group Dr. Jimena Gorfinkiel (http://physics.open.ac.uk/~jdgorfinkiel/) starting in early 2018. The work involves implementing significant improvements to the UKRmol+ suite, in order to produce a software suite to accurately describe atoms and molecules  in intense, ultra-short light fields.

The position is funded by the grant R-matrix suites for multielectron attosecond dynamics in atoms and molecules irradiated by arbitrarily polarised light, a collaboration between The Open University and Queen’s University Belfast with collaborators from University College London, Max Born Institute for Non-linear Optics, Quantemol Ltd.  and the Scientific Computing Department at STFC.

Qualifications and Requirements:

  • A PhD in physics, computational chemistry or a closely related field.
  • Experience of applying techniques of high performance computing to problems in physics/chemistry and excellent knowledge of Fortran 95
  • Good numerical analysis and problem solving skills
  • The ability to work both independently and cooperatively as a productive member of a geographically distributed team.

More details and information on how to apply can be found here: http://www.open.ac.uk/about/employment/vacancies/post-doctoral-research-associate-14121/.   For an informal discussion of the project contact Jimena directly: Jimena.Gorfinkiel@open.ac.uk. The deadline for applications is 23 November.
