General introduction – We now invite applications for a PhD project in the group under the supervision of Klaus Braagaard Møller and Niels Engholm Henriksen. The project involves
- development of semi-classical and quantum theory of chemical dynamics and integration of highly sophisticated quantum chemical methods with dynamics simulations.
- analysis and prediction of experimental results, often in close collaboration with our colleagues performing time-resolved spectroscopic and scattering experiments in Denmark and abroad.
Responsibilities and tasks
The successful candidate will be part of our strong collaboration with the Department of Physics at DTU within a project recently funded by the Danish Council for Independent Research | Natural Sciences. This collaboration provides an exciting local work environment and access to the newly build x-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs) in USA and Japan as well as the upcoming XFEL in Hamburg. We also have well-established collaborations with leading scientific groups around the World, including Asia, Europe and USA.
Qualifications / Requirements
- Applicants should have or be in the final stages of obtaining a master’s degree in physical chemistry or molecular physics with excellent grades.
- A strong theoretical background is a must. Experience with developing new software and with using program packages for electronic structure calculations, wave-packet propagation, and MD simulations is a definite advantage.
- The successful candidate must be independent, self-confident, committed to doing research, and have good communication in the English language.
- As our projects are often of a highly collaborative nature, the successful candidate must also have good people skills and have demonstrated the ability to work well within groups.Assessment procedure
The assessment of the applicants will be made by-
- Associate Professor Klaus Braagaard Møller and
- Associate Professor Niels Engholm Henriksen.
We offer an interesting and challenging job in an international environment focusing on education, research, public-sector consultancy and innovation, which contribute to enhancing the economy and improving social welfare. We strive for academic excellence, collegial respect and freedom tempered by responsibility.
Salary and appointment terms
Salary and appointment terms are consistent with the current rules for PhD degree students. The period of employment is 3 years. Depending on seniority the salary level corresponds to around 40.000 EUR/yr.
