Fully funded 2-year Postdoc position DFT-MD/Cl-MD

Gaigeot group - University of Evry-University Paris Saclay

Starting as soon as possible and at the latest in September 2019

The Post-Doc is fully funded under the scheme ‘Post-Doc de retour’ and is thus restricted to current Post-Docs working outside France and who got their PhD in a French laboratory within the past 4-5 years. Net salary is 3000€/month (larger than usual French Post-Doc salaries).

Subject: Hydrophobicity/hydrophilicity at aqueous interfaces: structure, dynamics, SFG marker bands of water at interfaces investigated by molecular dynamics simulations. Simulations will make the link with experiments done by collaborators (Europe, USA).

Theoretical Methods: AIMD/DFT-MD and classical MD simulations.  

Mandatory expertise of the candidate: theoretical and computational chemist/physicist, expert in AIMD/DFT-MD and/or classical MD simulations. Coding is a big plus, some expertise in machine learning techniques could be a plus.

Our group expertise: International recognition in AIMD/DFT-MD simulations of solid/water and air/water interfaces, theoretical SFG spectroscopy at interfaces, expertise in IR/Raman/SFG theoretical vibrational spectroscopies with original developments to reduce the computational cost of these calculations. Numerous collaborations with the most advanced IR/Raman/SFG experimental groups in Europe and USA.

Mandatory requirement to apply: PhD from a French laboratory obtained within the past 4-5 years, the candidate must be currently Post-Doc outside France.

Contact: Please contact Marie-Pierre Gaigeot mgaigeot@univ-evry.fr with a detailed CV, letter of motivation, description of current research achievements, and 3 recommendation names and email addresses for further contact, including the PhD supervisor in France.
