Theoretical/Computational Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics
The appointment will be made on an annual basis, beginning on or after September 1, 2019. The position may be extended for up to three years. The successful candidate will be involved in creating, testing, documenting, and maintaining a publicly available general suite of computer codes based on the B-spline R-matrix (close-coupling) method for atomic/ionic structure as well as electron and photon collisions with atoms and ions. Some experience with atomic structure and collision calculations is highly desirable.
A significant portion of the work will involve the development of a web-based interface to enable interaction with potential users of the package. Consequently, excellent written and oral communication skills in English are required. A portion of the workload will be allocated to allow for production calculations that should result in peer-reviewed publications to build the candidate’s research record.
Review of applications will begin on July 1, 2019 and continue until the position is filled. A formal application should be submitted through
