Postdoctoral research position in theoretical chemistry in the Department of Chemistry, University of Sheffield, UK

A postdoctoral research position in theoretical chemistry is available in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Sheffield. 

The goal of this project is to develop new basis sets for use in molecular applications, with the aim of producing new software that interacts with existing computational chemistry packages and uses machine learning to produce accurate and compact basis sets. We will use sustainable software development practices throughout, with a research software engineer providing support for both machine learning methods and sustainable development. 

The ideal candidate will have a PhD in theoretical chemistry or related subject areas with experience in writing scientific code and/or machine learning. In addition, you will be encouraged to write high quality scientific manuscripts describing the work done and present at national and international conferences.
