About the university
Uppsala University is an international research university focused on the development of science and education. Our most important assets are all the individuals who with their curiosity and their dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting work places. Uppsala University has 40,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6,5 billion.
We are looking for a highly motivated and ambitious Ph.D. student to work on the development and application of first-principles theory to study charge transfer dynamics in photocatalytic processes on the surfaces of functional 2D and 3D materials, a typical example being photo-induced water splitting. Ab initio molecular dynamics simulations within adiabatic approximation will be performed for the structural properties of the adsorbates on the substrates followed by non-adiabatic molecular dynamics simulations through the coupling of electronic and ionic degrees of freedom. Moreover, excited state properties will be studied by time-dependent density functional theory. The project involves large scale computations in high performance supercomputing facilities as well as development of numerical codes. Collaboration with other theoretical and experimental groups is highly anticipated.
Uppsala University aims for gender balance and diversity in all activities in order to achieve a higher quality at all levels of the organization. We therefore welcome applicants of any gender and with different birth background, functionality and life experience. Within this category a majority of the employed are men, and we would therefore particularly like to see female applicants for employment.
