Postdoctoral Researcher, Theoretical Chemistry, Uppsala University, Sweden (29 April 2024)

The Quantum Chemistry group at Uppsala University, Sweden, is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in theoretical chemistry (a temporary position of two years). Note that the position is a stipend position and hence the holder of the position is not formally hired by Uppsala University.

This postdoctoral project aims at the development and implementation of perturbation theory applied to multiconfigurational wavefunctions. The position includes theory development and the implementation of software for the open-source program project OpenMolcas. The position is placed in the Quantum Chemistry group, headed by Prof. Roland Lindh.

Qualifications: To be eligible to apply you must have a Ph.D. in theoretical or computational chemistry, mathematics, numerical methods, or in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning, or an exam which is judged comparable to a Swedish Ph.D. in the same subject. Extensive knowledge in and practical experience with creating mathematical models, and/or theoretical chemistry, is mandatory. Documented experience of the development of quantum chemical methods and algorithms, and computer programming, are a strong merits for this employment.

The applicant is subject to approval from the funding agency. Start of the position is negotiable.

To apply for the position (send your CV and one letter of recommendation), or to ask for additional information, please email Prof. Roland Lindh (roland.lindh@kemi.uu.se).
