Position: Research Fellow in Theoretical Molecular Physics
Institution: University College London
Department: Physics and Astronomy
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The ExoMol group at UCLs Department of Physics and Astronomy is looking to recruit a team of enthusiastic scientists to work on the ERC funded ExoMolHD project. The project will use quantum mechanical methods to provide high quality molecular data for the study and characterisation of the atmospheres of exoplanets and other hot methods; We are looking for two research associates and two PhD students to work on a variety of projects including a) providing precise wavelengths for key molecules applicable for use in high resolution spectroscopic studies performed by ground-based telescopes using high resolution instruments; (b) predicting accurate spectroscopic data on key isotopically-substituted species; (c) providing temperature-dependent pressure shifts and pressure broadening parameters; (d) computing photodissociation cross sections and photolysis rates both in and outside thermodynamic equilibrium and (e) developing appropriate database structures; Interested candidates are welcome to contact Jonathan Tennyson ( j.tennyson@ucl.ac.uk ) for informal discussion prior to application; All positions are funded for 3 years in the first instance and will start on 1 September 2020 or soon afterwards
Requirements: The successful applicant will have a PhD in Physics, Chemistry or Astronomy or closely related subject. They should have a strong background in molecular quantum mechanics; some knowledge of molecular spectroscopy and good programming skills are desirable. Candidates should also have excellent written and verbal communication
