Job description

We invite applications for one PhD position, with Dr Remco Havenith at the University of Groningen. We are looking for a talented and highly motivated candidate to work on a collaborative project between the RUG and the University of Twente (Prof. Claudia Filippi) on the combined development of advanced valence bond and quantum Monte Carlo methods for the study of excited-state processes in complex systems.

The project will focus on the development and implementation of non-orthogonal configuration interaction as well as quantum Monte Carlo methods for an accurate and chemically interpretable description of excited states. The resulting methods will be applied to potential upconversion materials.
