The hired postdoctoral fellow will be associated with developing and implementing (code Fiesta) the calculation of analytic forces in the excited state of molecular systems within the Bethe-Salpeter formalism, adapting techniques known in time-dependent DFT, as part of the BSE-Forces project funded by the French funding agency (ANR).
The postdoctoral fellow will be in charge of : - adapting to the Bethe-Salpeter formalism the methodology (derivation of equations) already well documented in the time-dependent DFT formalism, - implementing the related formalism in the many-body GW and Bethe-Salpeter FIESTA code (http://perso.neel.cnrs.fr/xavier.blase/fiesta/) Both tasks will be conducted with the help and guidance of the main developers of the code (X. Blase and I. Duchemin).
The ideal candidate should have a good background in quantum mechanics and condensed-matter ab initio formalisms (e.g. TD-DFT or many-body Green's function, etc.) with either a physicist or quantum chemist experience, and a taste for coding and implementating in a well stablished computational package (C++/MPI code).
The postdoctoral fellow will join the condensed matter and theory group at Institut Néel (about 12 researchers and 8 PhDs and postdoctoral fellows) with a dynamic « ab initio » subgroup composed of 4 permanent researchers. The hired candidate will join a French collaboration with the CEA in Grenoble (Dr. Ivan Duchemin) and Prof. Denis Jacquemin in Nantes for related applications. The project benefits as well from the support of a young PhD associated with the project.
Constraints and risks
The project being theoretical (analytic and numerical develoments), there is no specific risks associated with the project.
