Queen Mary University of London (QMUL)

£32,956 - £36,677per annum

Closing date for applications is 02 May 2018

This research programme will focus on the development of computational chemistry strategies towards the design of efficient emissive organic single crystals with applications in solid-state lasers. The project involves the investigation of nonradiative mechanisms in model materials and the implementation of methods to consider excited state dynamics in the crystal environment. The ideal candidate should have a PhD in computational chemistry, physics and/or materials science. Previous experience in code development is highly desirable.

For specific details about the project, please email Dr Crespo-Otero (
