There is a vacancy for a postdoc position, with a contract of 1 year and 4 months, to
work in the context of the ESC2RAD H2020 project “Enabling Smart Computations
to study space RADiation effects” http://www.esc2rad.eu/. The postdoc will work on
the modeling of space radiation effects (mainly protons and electrons) on different
components of future human Space missions, such as functional materials of the
spacecraft and biological molecules of relevance for DNA damage in astronauts.
The postdoc will work with first-principles chemical physics approaches for the
passage of particles through matter, such as time-dependent DFT (TDDFT), and, for
the studies on functional materials, also with Monte Carlo particle transport
approaches, as implemented in Geant4.
