Post-Doc in NMR modelling, NMR Research Unit at Univ. of Oulu

Dear students and colleaques,

we have an open Post-Doc position for NMR parameter modelling of porous materials in NMR Research Unit.

In the project, we will combine quantum chemical (QC) methods at relativistic level for heavy-element containing systems with atomistic molecular dynamics (MD) simulations utilising modern semi-empirical and machine learning (ML) approaches. The work is carried out in close collaboration with local and international experimental NMR researchers, where modeling is essential part providing predictions and microscopic interpretations of experimental observations. As a post-doctoral researcher, one will focus on developing QM/MD/ML-methods for large length- and time-scale simulations in new porous materials.
