PhD Studentship in Theoretical Chemical Physics at Stockholm University, Sweden

If you have questions about this aid arises, please visit the official source and ask your questions directly to the center.

Stockholm University is inviting applications for PhD studentship in Theoretical Chemical Physics: Quantum Chemical Studies of Ultra-fast Dynamics and X-ray spectra at the Department of Physics. Applicants will work on new approaches for spectrum simulations with state-of-the-art quantum chemistry. PhD studentship at Stockholm University is four years (48 months). The 4-year PhD program includes at least 3 years of research and at most one year of course work. Application deadline is October 1, 2014.. To solve the problems that we face today, for example with sustainable energy production, we need insight into the mechanisms of the underlying electronic and photo-chemical processes. Remarkable advances in x-ray spectroscopy and pulsed light-sources, including free-electron lasers, plasma sources and higher harmonic generation, today enable unprecedented insight into the electronic structure and photo-chemistry in solution and solids. The parallel development of theoretical tools for electronic structure calculations and spectrum simulations based on realistic models allows for increasingly accurate predictions and interpretation of the experimental data. Combined the experimental and theoretical techniques constitute a powerful probe for dissecting the electronic structure of complex materials and determine the pathways of photo-chemical processes in solutions and solids of importance for many energy-related applications..  Studenship is available at PhD level of study.
The research areas of this scholarship are:  PhD studentship is available in Theoretical Chemical Physics: Quantum Chemical Studies of Ultra-fast Dynamics and X-ray spectra at the Department of Physics.
Who can apply to this scholarship?  To be accepted as a PhD student in Theoretical Physics one should have studied at least four years at a University and have a BSc in Physics. These studies must include advanced courses in physics during one year and an advanced degree project. For the subject Chemical Physics courses in chemistry may replace the required physics courses.
