Postdoctoral fellow in force-field development for water including machine learning

The Department of Physics and Stockholm University is affiliated to Stockholm Dual Career Network (SDCN) that supports expat partners with professional events, career-related advice and by building a social network in their new hometown, www.sdcn.se.

Project description
Within the ERC Advanced Grant GAS-WAT (Gases in Water, Prof. Lars G.M. Pettersson, PI) one subproject is to develop a highly accurate force-field for water including dissociation. This will build on advanced electrostatic response for intermediate and long range and machine-learned CCSD(T)-level short-range interactions. This will be coupled with deep neural network training to extend applicability both in space and time.

A particular focus will be applications using, e.g., umbrella sampling to investigate possible special structures in water associated with proposed HDL and LDL environments (Nilsson&Pettersson, Nature Commun. 6 (2015) 8998) and their potential role in dissolution and transport of gases in water.

The theory group of Prof. Pettersson works within the XSoLaS combined experimental and theory group in the Chemical Physics Division at the Department of Physics within Stockholm University (www.xsolasgroup.fysik.su.se).

Main responsibilities
The position involves methods development and implementation of force-field and machine-learning techniques with particular focus on applications to water in its various aggregation states.

Qualification requirements
Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country.

Assessment criteria
The degree should have been completed no more than three years before the deadline for applications. An older degree may be acceptable under special circumstances, which may involve sick leave, parental leave, clinical attachment, elected positions in trade unions, or similar.

The assessment is based on documented theoretical knowledge and experience relevant to the area, knowledge of and experience in theoretical techniques and methods, analytical and programming skills, ability to work well in groups as well as independently, and personal commitment. Strong motivation is considered a key component for a successful outcome of the postdoctoral research.

Terms of employment
The position involves full-time employment for a maximum of two years, with the possibility of extension under special circumstances. Start date 2021-09-01 or as per agreement.
