The project on which the chosen person will work treats the optical response of noble-metal nanoparticles. We will carry out a high-level analysis of the reaction of the electronic density to different perturbations
The project comprises the planification and the carrying out of the calculations, the analysis of the results (including, potentially, the creation of post-processing tools (computer codes)), as well as their interpretation.
Expected skills and competences : Experience is necessary in the modelling of the electronic / optical response of nanostructures. In particular, we look for a candidate with a double-profile encompassing classical modelling (Maxwell's equations, local model and hydrodynamic models) and experience in quantum calculations, in particular of TDDFT. Experience in the use of DFT / TDDFT is indispensable, and experience with the octopus code using the time evolution formalism and the corresponding treatment of results will be a plus.
The CINaM is a « unité mixte de recherche », belonging to both the CNRS and Aix-Marseille University. It is devided in 5 departments, with a total of about 150 people. It is situated at the Campus of Luminy in the south of Marseille (France). The successful candidate will work in the department « Théorie et simulation numérique » of the CINaM under the responsibility of Hans-Christian WEISSKER. The simulation of clusters and nanoparticles is a domain of effervescent activity, in which projects often combine physicists and chemists. The department consists of 9 researchers, physicists et chemists.
Constraints and risks
The work being purely theoretical, there is no associated risk of exposition to hazardous materials or processes, except for the risks linked to ergonomic questions like work on the screen.
