Postdoctoral Research Associate in Computational Chemistry

We have a Postdoctoral position in Computational Chemistry available in the groups of Associate Professor Meredith Jordan at the University of Sydney and Professor Scott Kable at the University of New South Wales. The project involves theoretical support and prediction of experimental photodissociation dynamics both in molecular beam experiments and under atmospheric conditions.

As the Postdoctoral Research Associate you will undertake collaborative and self-directed research compatible with the project’s aims. These include but are not limited to: (i) electronic structure theory calculations of ground and excited state species (ii) quantum and (iii) classical dynamical simulations, (iv) energy transfer and master equation modeling. You will develop new approaches to photochemical and atmospheric reactions. Extensive skills and experience in molecular dynamics, coarse grained dynamics or kinetic modelling are desirable in this context.
