Subject: 17.02.03 Post-doctoral Research Assistant in Computational Physics/Chemistry, University College London, UK
A post-doctoral research position is available from 1. October 2017 in the research group of Prof Jochen Blumberger at University College London, UK. The position is funded by the ERC grant SOFTCHARGE: Charge carrier transport in Soft Matter: From Fundamentals to High Performance Materials. Charge transport (CT) is at the heart of many exciting and potentially revolutionising technologies ranging from organic photovoltaic cells to nanobioelectronic transistors, yet our fundamental understanding of CT in these materials is still very limited. In the project we will extend/add new functionalities to our recently developed non-adiabatic molecular dynamics code, which was specifically tailored towards the simulation of charge transport in organic semiconducting materials and biomolecules (J Chem Phys, 145, 64102, 2016). Work may be carried out on one or several of the following projects (i) development of non-adiabatic MD frameworks beyond surface hopping (SH) (ii) development of SH algorithms for a coarse grained molecular representation (iii) extension of the current method to coupled excitation energy/charge transport in organic semiconductors and proteins (iv) massive parallelisation of existing code to enable applications to 2D and 3D materials (e.g. crystals, thin films, crystalline/amorphous organic interfaces). Your work will contribute to a user-friendly open software tool and will yield important fundamental insight into the nature of CT in materials that have the potential to transform emerging technologies of the 21st century. This project is funded by ERC for 1 year in the first instance, with the option to extend for another 2 years (3 years in total). Eligible candidates have a PhD in computational physics/chemistry or related disciplines. Highly motivated individuals who have a strong background in programming (fortran, C++ or similar) and computer code development are encouraged to apply for this post. Interest in the simulation of charge/excitation energy transport is essential and good knowledge in molecular quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics and molecular simulation methods is expected. First-hand experience with non-adiabatic molecular dynamics simulation is an advantage but not required.

Online application involves upload of (i) Statement in support of your application (ii) CV (iii) full list of publications as supporting document and (iv) contact details of 2 referees. Please send these four application documents also as a single zip file to Jochen Blumberger, j.blumberger^_^ucl.ac.uk specifying in the subject line Post-doc application. The closing date for applications is 28. February 2017. Interested candidates may want to take a look at recent group publications in the field, listed on the group website http://www.blumberger.net Informal enquiries regarding the vacancy can be made to Prof Jochen Blumberger by email.
