at theDepartment of Physics. Closing date: 17 June, 2021.
The Department of Physics is one of the biggest departments within the
Faculty of Science and supports a broad range of basic research in
experimental and theoretical physics. It has about 250 employees of which 95
are PhD students. Many have been internationally recruited. The Department is
part of the AlbaNova University Center, which apart from the Department of
Physics houses the Department of Astronomy, the Physics Departments at the
Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), and the Nordic Institute for
Theoretical Physics (Nordita).
The Department of Physics and Stockholm University is affiliated to Stockholm
Dual Career Network (SDCN) that supports expat partners with professional
events, career-related advice and by building a social network in their new
hometown. www. sdcn.se.
Within the ERC Advanced Grant GAS-WAT (Gases in Water, Prof. Lars G.M.
Pettersson, PI) one subproject is to investigate possible effects of nuclear
spin-coupling, resulting in ortho and para water molecules. For this we will
need to further develop quantum chemical codes that treat light nuclei on a
par with the electrons.
A particular focus will be on describing rotating molecules and the dynamics
in changing hydrogen-bonding situations. The theory group of Prof. Pettersson
works within the XSoLaS combined experimental and theory group in the Chemical
Physics Division at the Department of Physics within Stockholm University
The position involves methods development and implementation of nuclear
wave function techniques with particular focus on applications to water in its
various aggregation states.
Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research.
Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent
degree from another country.
The degree should have been completed no more than three years before the
deadline for applications. An older degree may be acceptable under special
circumstances, which may involve sick leave, parental leave, clinical
attachment, elected positions in trade unions, or similar.
The assessment is based on documented theoretical knowledge and experience
relevant to the area, knowledge of and experience in theoretical techniques
and methods, analytical and programming skills, ability to work well in groups
as well as independently, and personal commitment. Strong motivation is
considered a key component for a successful outcome of the postdoctoral
Terms of employment
The position involves full-time employment for a maximum of two years, with
