  • Overview

    The objective of the project is the development of a new methodological approach for X-ray data refinement with the goal of evaluation of molecular crystal thermodynamic properties that take into account vibrational and configurational entropy contributions to free energies of molecular crystals based on the combination of accurate ab-initio calculations and statistical methods. Obtaining thermodynamic properties from X-ray diffraction data and calculations would be a significant breakthrough - understanding stability of a molecular solid state is still one of the hottest topics in crystallography, chemistry, pharmacy and physics.

    We seek to recruit a self-driven and creative theoretical chemist to join our team to work on SONATA project entitled “Dynamic Quantum Crystallography for accurate structures, entropy and other thermodynamic properties for molecular crystals”.

    Responsibilities include

    • conducting theoretical calculations (mostly DFT for periodic systems)

    • keeping scientific documentation;

    • creating publications from research results;

    • training of PhD students and undergraduates in crystallography and/or theoretical research.

    Qualifications

    • PhD in Crystallography, Computational Chemistry or related field

    Required:

    • Good knowledge of DFT calculations;

    • Good knowledge of single crystal X-ray diffraction principles;

    • Self-driven, proactive, and forward-thinking attitude.

    Considered a plus:

    • Programming.

    Personal attributes

    • Highly organized, conscientious, and reliable team player, with strong attention to detail;

    • Excellent communication and presentation skills to share complex ideas and results with non-experts;

    • Fluency in English.

    The candidate must meet the requirements of art. 113 of the Act - Law on Higher Education and Science dated July 20, 2018 (Journal of Laws of 2018, item 1668 as amended).
