Development and applications of simulation methods for non-adiabatic dynamics

Please note that the job is no longer active!

We will develop methods for non-adiabatic dynamics (i.e. for systems which do not satisfy the Born-Oppenheimer approximation). Electronic states and their couplings will be described via Time Dependent Density Funcitonal Theory. We shall explore and compare, in particular, the Bohmian formulation of the non-adiabatic problem and the so-called linearized dynamics methods, which arise from the path integral formulation. These methods will be applied to studying the photo relaxation dynamics of a model system for DNA-Protein crosslink: the 5-6 benzyluracil. Our goal is to assist pump and probe experiments (carried out at the Un. Federico II) in understanding the photocyclization mechanism of this molecule.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
