Subject: 18.03.11 Postdoctoral position in computational photochemistry, Linkoeping University, Sweden
A postdoctoral position in computational photochemistry supervised by Bo Durbeej is available 
immediately at Linkoeping University, Sweden (

The position involves research focused on the design of more efficient synthetic light-driven rotary 
molecular motors through quantum chemical, QM/MM and non-adiabatic molecular dynamics 
studies, building on recent designs reported in, e.g., Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys. 2017, 19, 6952; 
Org. Lett. 2017, 19, 4818 and Int. J. Quantum Chem. 2018, 118, e25405.

Candidates for the position should have a solid background in chemistry and computational 
chemistry, as well as experience in quantum chemical modeling of organic molecules in excited 
states AND/OR experience in quantum chemical modeling of surface reactions. This experience 
should be documented in the form of relevant research articles as first author in well-known 
international journals. In addition, hands-on familiarity with several different quantum chemistry 
codes (GAUSSIAN, MOLCAS, ADF, TURBOMOLE, etc.) is highly desirable, as is a good working 
knowledge of Python or similar for efficient data analysis. Experience in running non-adiabatic 
molecular dynamics simulations is a plus.

The appointee is expected to have the ability to work both independently and in close collaboration 
with other researchers. A good command of English is therefore essential (both written and oral).

The position carries a tax-free net salary of 25 000 SEK/month and is initially for 1 year, including a
6-months evaluation period. Subject to good progress, prolongation of the position after 1 year is 

The project in which the appointee will be working has ample access to high-performance 
computing resources at the National Supercomputing Centre in Linkoeping.
