Post-Doctoral Fellowship (Computational Physics/ Chemistry) at IISER Bhopal: Apply by June 25: Expired

Applications are invited for Post-Doctoral Fellowship (Computational Physics/ Chemistry) at IISER Bhopal for the year 2021. The last date of application is 25 June 2021.

Applications are invited from Indian nationals for one post of “Project Post-doctoral Fellow/ Research Associate” in the NSM sponsored project LITESOPH (Layer Integrated Toolkit and Engine for Simulations of Photoinduced Phenomena).

Project description

The project involves development of a comprehensive toolkit for computer simulations of photo-induced phenomena based on the combination of two excited state dynamics approaches: ab initio techniques (based on TDDFT), and open quantum system approaches
(based on simple models). Target applications shall include solar energy conversion (photovoltaics, water-splitting catalysts, solar fuels, etc.), optoelectronic materials, photochemistry and photobiology.

  • Essential Qualifications: Ph.D in Computational Chemistry/Computational Quantum Physics/Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics with good academic record.
  • Desirable Qualifications: Experience with DFT/TDDFT codes, classical / ab initio MD, excited state dynamics (surface hopping /Ehrenfest dynamics), open quantum systems, energy transport, photo-physics.

12 months


Applications containing an (i) cover letter, (ii) updated CV with name and address of 2 referees, (iii) a 1-page writeup on their PhD thesis should be sent by e-mail ONLY to vardha[at]iiserb.ac.in on or before 25th June, 2021. Shortlisted candidates will be called for an interview (in person or online)

Important date

Last date for applications: 25 June, 2021


In the range of Rs. 47,000 – 54,000 p.m. + HRA (16%), depending on experience.
