Postdoc in theoretical astrochemistry at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden

Postdoc in theoretical astrochemistry

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral positions at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden in the research group of Gunnar Nyman.

The research group develops theory and implements it on computers in order to study chemical processes in the gas phase and in condensed phase. We are interested in chemical kinetics, spectroscopy and dynamics in general, but focus on processes that are relevant to astrochemistry.

The present project concerns formation, destruction and survival of nano- to micrometer sized dust particles in our Universe, including early galaxies, areas close to black holes and our local Universe. We will study dust particles, often silicon and/or carbon based, at a molecular level and their interactions with other particles (molecules/atoms, ions/electrons) and electromagnetic radiation. The project is financed by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg research foundation and is run jointly with three research groups from Chalmers University of Technology, which particularly contribute astronomical observations. See also for information about the research group and for information on this project.

Taking part in the development of theoretical models and the implementation of these in computer codes. Also already completed, sometimes commercial, codes can be used. These are to be run, the results analyzed and prepared for publication in international journals.

A PhD in Physics or Chemistry or related subject is required.
Previous experience of and knowledge of molecular dynamics and astrochemistry is an advantage. Experience of quantum chemistry/electron structure calculations and rate theories is also an advantage.

The application deadline is 15 November 2022. Apply via:
