Two PhD positions are open at the Italian National Research Council within the
Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network

LightDyNAmics- DNA as a training platform for 
photodynamic processes in soft materials. (H2020-MSCA-ITN-765266):
https://www.lightdynamics.eu/

1 position is at the Institute of Biostructures and Bioimages.
PhD Title " Exciton and charge separation: 
computational models " . Supervisor Roberto Improta ([log in to unmask])

1 position at the Institute of Chemistry of OrganoMetallic Compounds.
PhD title "Quantum dynamics in nucleobases and small oligomers:
toward the simulation of time resolved spectra ". 
Supervisor Fabrizio Santoro ([log in to unmask])

The main aims of project 1 are:
1. Develop effective mixed quantum/classical 
computational strategies for the simulation of 
electronic spectra and the dynamics of excitation 
energy (EET) and charge transfers (CT) in 
strongly coupled multichromophore systems.
2. Applying these methods to investigate the 
excited state dynamics of polynucleotides, with 
special reference to G-quadruplexes.

The main aims of project 2 are:
1. Develop new effective computational strategies 
to compute pump-probe spectra and 2D electronic 
spectra from quantum dynamics (QD), to be directly compared with experiments.
2. Apply these methodologies to nucleobases and 
small oligomers addressing in detail the relation 
between the lifetimes obtained from fitting of 
spectroscopic traces and the underlying QD processes in the molecule.

The successful candidate of project 1  will work 
under the supervision of Dr. Roberto Improta and 
with the co-supervision of Dr. F. Santoro 
(ICCOM-CNR, Pisa) and of Dr. D. Markovitsi 
(LIDYL/CNRS, Paris) and will be enrolled in the 
doctoral School in Biomolecular Science at the 
University of Campania ‘Luigi Vanvitelli”.

The successful candidate of project 2 will work 
under the supervision of Dr. Fabrizio Santoro and 
with the co-supervision of Dr. R. Improta 
(IBB-CNR, Napoli) and of Prof. G. Cerullo 
(POLIMI, Milano), and will be enrolled in the 
doctoral School in Chemical and Materials Science at the University of Pisa.


Application deadline 31 May 2018.
Applications can be made at the following link 
http://www.ibb.cnr.it/?command=viewcms&and2=32&id=224


1. Eligibility criteria
(a) Nationality: The candidate can be of any nationality.
(b) Mobility: By the closing date of the call for 
applicants, the candidate must not have resided 
or carried out his/her main activity in Italy for 
more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately 
prior to his/her recruitment under the project. 
Compulsory national service and/or short stays 
such as holidays are not taken into account.
(c) Qualifications: By the closing date of the 
call for applicants, the candidate shall have a 
master degree or equivalent in Chemistry, 
Physics, Material Sciences (or related topics) 
corresponding to the second level of studies.
(d) Foreign language: The candidate shall be 
fluent in written and spoken English.

  Preference will be given to candidates with a 
strong background and interest in one of the 
fields reported in (c). The ideal candidate will 
have a background in the theoretical study of 
photoinduced processes. Alternatively previous 
experience in Theoretical and Computational 
Chemistry  is welcome. Programming skills (Fortran, etc) are welcome too.
By the closing date of the call for applicants
candidates shall not have been awarded a doctorate degree;
The candidate should be in the first 4 years 
(full-time equivalent) of his/her research 
career. This includes the period of research 
training, starting from the date of obtaining the 
degree, which would formally entitle him/her to 
embark on a doctorate either in the country in 
which the degree was obtained or in Italy, 
irrespective of whether or not a doctorate is envisaged.

2. Information related to the supervision and the contract
- The employment contract offered is a full time, 
temporary contract with full social security coverage;
- The duration of the contract is 12 Months renewable up to 36 months;
- The monthly gross salary is 3,167.00 €. In case 
the successful applicant has family charges, an 
additional allowance will be allocated once not 
before Month 12 of the contract period.

3. Evaluation criteria and selection procedure
The evaluation will consist of two selection 
steps: the first based on the documentation 
provided by the candidates and the second based 
on the interview. Within each step, the marks 
given for each criterion by the reviewers will be 
used against an established pass/fail threshold.

Best regards,
Fabrizio Santoro
