Description of the thesis topic

The overall objective of this project (Prima-LTD) is to improve knowledge of electron capture decay (EC) and subsequent atomic relaxation processes. This project is part of a European metrology consortium including experimentalists and theorists specializing in nuclear physics and atomic physics.
The candidate (M/F) will work on the development of computer codes to describe the electronic properties of radionuclides studied experimentally within the Prima-LTD consortium. More precisely, he/she will develop computer codes within the framework of the relativistic density functional theory to generate the electronic energies and the wave functions of the bound and continuum states for radionuclides of interest.
He/she will make the link between the nuclear description of the disintegration by electronic capture developed at the National Henri Becquerel Laboratory (LNHB) of CEA Saclay and the atomic part developed in Strasbourg.
Finally, the candidate (M/F) will compare the theoretical predictions with the experimental measurements obtained within the framework of the consortium (Prima-LTD).
The candidate (M/F) should have a good knowledge in the theory of electronic structure of atoms as well as to have notions on the relativistic description of heavy atoms. Basic knowledge in nuclear physics specifically on the different decay processes is desirable.
He/she must have good practice in data processing, analysis and exploitation, have good programming experience in Fortran language.

Work Context

The recruited candidate (M/F) will join the Institute of Physics and Chemistry of Materials of Strasbourg, located on the Cronenbourg campus, and more particularly the Q-DYNO team (Quantum DYnamics of Nano-Objects) of the Department of Ultrafast Optics and Nanophotonics (DON). He-she will work under the responsibility of the team leader.
The candidate (M/F) will work on the development of computer codes to describe the electronic properties of radionuclides studied experimentally within the Prima-LTD consortium.
He/she will be working in collaboration with various researchers from the Prima-LTD consortium and to carry out missions in France and abroad.
