PHD POSITION IN THEORETICAL PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY
A four year PhD-studentship in theoretical physical chemistry is
immediately at the Theoretical Chemistry group of the Rijksuniversiteit
Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands.
FIELDS: theoretical/computational physics/chemistry
KEYWORDS: quantum chemistry, time-dependent (current)-density-functional
theory, elementary excitations, response and transport properties,
SUBJECT: This project is part of a research program that focuses on the
approach of time-dependent current-density-functional theory for
excitation and response properties in solid state physics and quantum
chemistry. Currently three PhD students and two tenure-track
developing this theoretical and computational method for solids,
polymers, and large molecules. Jointly with them the successful
will study the interplay between electrons and phonons (governing for
instance the transport properties in conducting polymers). The
the relevant theory and its implementation in existing computer codes
APPOINTMENT AND SALARY: The studentship is funded by the Dutch Research
Council and is part of a grant for Innovative Research (VIDI). The
PhD-student will be appointed for a period of four years with evaluation
after one year, and will be offered a monthly salary (before
taxes and health and social insurance fees, typically 30% in total)
between Euro 1503 in the first year and Euro 2145 in the fourth year.
Additionally, they receive a holiday allowance (8%) and an end-of-year
supplement. As part of their training they will be enrolled for courses
international quantum chemistry schools. A course in the Dutch language
also be funded.
QUALIFICATION: Successful candidates should hold a Master in Science, or
equivalent degree, in theoretical chemistry or physics, and should be
amongst the best of their peer group. They should have good
skills and should master the English language. Experience with density
functional methods and numerical methods is recommended.
APPLICATION: requests for further information and applications
