Postdoc position in development and application of excited state decay theories within quantum-classical nonadiabatic molecular dynamics framework

Dear Colleagues,

A postdoctoral position in theoretical/computational chemistry is available at the Faculty of Chemistry (University of Warsaw, Poland) to work in the group of Dr. Joanna Jankowska ( The appointment is for one year.

The research project, titled ‘Merging Excited State Decay Rate Theories with Semi-Classical Nonadiabatic Excited State Dynamics (PhotoSynergy)’, is situated in the field of computational photochemistry, in a framework of CELSA collaboration with Prof. Daniel Escudero (KU Leuven, Belgium). Specifically, it focuses on developing and applying methodologies that will allow modeling of Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC) spectra with on-the-fly molecular dynamics techniques.  

The intended start date is in the fall of 2022. The candidate should have a PhD in theoretical/computational chemistry, with background in nonadiabatic excited-state molecular dynamics as an asset. The total offered salary is 22 000 euro per year (before taxes and the social security deduction).

Interested candidates should send their application in reply to the official open-position call that will be announced soon (July 2022) at the webpage of the Faculty of Chemistry, University of Warsaw: or contact Dr. Jankowska directly for more information.
