- Experience in OCaml appreciated

Work Context

Research will be made at the laboratoire de Chimie et Physique Quantiques in Toulouse. However, the candidate will need to travel in the european laboratories partners of the project (Italy, Netherlands, Germany, Poland).

Additional Information

TREX is a European Center of Excellence (CoE) federating European scientists, HPC centers, and SMEs. It aims at developing, promoting, and maintaining open-source high-performance software solutions in the field of quantum chemistry, that are ready to take advantage of upcoming exascale architectures.

Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) methods account for the fully correlated nature of the quantum electronic problem and offer an extremely accurate and systematically improvable solution of the Schrödinger equation. QMC calculations are extremely demanding from the point of view of computational resources and calculations are generally carried out thanks to the massively parallel character of the underlying algorithms.
