    1. Developing theoretical Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering

      The purpose of the present two-year post-doctoral work is to develop algorithms and approximations in the newly developed theoretical scheme for the Resonant
      Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS) spectroscopy [1]. The crucial theoretical developments will be coupled with efficient implementation in massively parallel codes in order to be applied to new frontier applications and will be carried out in close connection with the SEXTANTS beamline
      at the SOLEIL Synchrotron, partner of the project.

      The ideal candidate has a strong background in theory development, and experience in ab initio calculations. Good knowledge of computer programming as well as a predisposition for a integrated and collaborative way of working are required.
