Opportunity to join a major new project

We are seeking to recruit another smart, motivated PDRA on a major new project aimed at rebuilding quantum chemistry with vibrational motion built in from the start. This aspect of the project is funded by EPSRC (EP/R014493/1), and will also include a second PDRA position with Prof Peter Knowles in Cardiff.

As we wrote in the case for support:

We will … develop theories and software that treat electrons and bosons [and] capture nuclear degrees of freedom on the same footing, providing a new framework for modelling nonadiabatic processes. Our mixed fermion/boson quantum chemistry will be developed from simple mean-field approximations through to coupled-cluster response theory, providing tools for exploring exact and model Hamiltonians, and for predictively modelling real systems.

To see more details, including criteria and how to apply, please see our advertisement. Informal questions are welcome, and can be addressed to Fred on fred.manby@bristol.ac.uk.
