A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Dr Zdeněk Mašín at the Institute of Theoretical Physics (Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University, Prague).

The project’s aim is to use time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy to study ultrafast electronic and nuclear dynamics in molecules. We will use novel probing techniques to gain an unprecedented insight into the quantum molecular dynamics. This work will be done as part of an international collaboration including experiments (Dr Russell Minns, University of Southampton) and state of art theory of quantum dynamics (Dr Adam Kirrander, University of Edinburgh).

You will use and develop the molecular R-matrix codes to perform modelling of the photoionization dynamics and work on integration of this data into simulations of nuclear dynamics. This will require using advanced electronic structure methods and modelling of continuum dynamics at various levels of approximation. This is an exciting opportunity to gain experience in working with all aspects of the problem from electronic to nuclear dynamics and on interpretation of the experimental data.

The starting date is 1st September but is negotiable. The position is fully funded until end of 2022. Possibilities for further continuation of this work either in Prague or in Edinburgh will be explored in due course.
