OFFER DESCRIPTION

Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Molecular Dynamics of Water

Noam Agmon, Chemistry Department, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel).

 

Water is the most prevalent molecule on Earth, considered essential for life, but its hydrogen bonding leads to many peculiar anomalies, making its study challenging. Gas-phase cluster studies have been initiated with the aim of improving understanding of the liquid phase through such fundamental moieties, but this has not yet materialized due to very different temperature ranges and deficiencies in interaction potentials. The present project will use the most accurate, many-body water potential energy functions to build a bridge between water studies in the gas and liquid states. For further background see:

N. R. Samala and N. Agmon. Thermally induced hydrogen-bond rearrangements in small water clusters and the persistent water tetramer. ACS Omega, 4: 22581-22590, 2019.
