The Chilton Group

Magnetism, Spectroscopy, Theory

Post-Doctoral Research Associate

Applications are invited for a PDRA position in the Chilton Group at The University of Manchester. The position is funded by the European Research Council, starting immediately for 3 years (extenstion up to 5 years may be available).

This position is part of the “ContraVib: Chemical Control of Vibronic Coupling for Magnetic Materials” project, that seeks to use high quality physical measurements and state-of-the-art theoretical techniques to develop guidelines for the chemical control of vibronic coupling. The successful candidate will join the multidisciplinary Chilton group in the Department of Chemistry at The University of Manchester, working in close collaboration with the Manchester Open Quantum Systems group led by Dr Ahsan Nazir in the Department of Physics, and tackle the elementary questions of: how can molecular vibronic coupling be controlled and how can it be exploited?
