Research Scholar - 999084
A post-doctoral position in theoretical/computational AMO physics is available at Drake University. 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, depending on performance and continued external funding. The successful candidate is expected to be involved in creating 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. 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. The successful candidate will also assist in creating and testing parallelized versions of the package, preparing a number of example cases, and producing an extensive write-up. 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 June 1, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.
