Subject: 16.06.23 PhD (f/m) with a masters degree in Theoretical Chemistry, MPI Muelheim, Germany

The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion in Mülheim an der Ruhr has been re-established in 2012 and the field of research has been aligned with the conversion of energy. Our scientists are engaged in basic processes that are essential within the storage and conversion of energy.

On behalf of the Cluster of Excellence "Ruhr Explores Solvation" (RESOLV) the department "Molecular Theory and Spectroscopy" is presently looking for candidates for a

PhD (f/m) with a master's degree in Theoretical Chemistry.

The successful candidate will receive a stipend from the international Graduate School "Solvation Science", part of the Cluster of Excellence "Ruhr Explores Solvation" (RESOLV). See for details on RESOLV and the Graduate School.

Job Description: The doctoral candidate will be supervised by Dr. Dimitrios Pantazis and Prof. Dr. Frank Neese and will pursue research on the topic "Theoretical Spectroscopy in Solution". The goal will be to develop and advance the applicability of wave function based local correlation methods to the prediction of spectroscopic properties of open-shell species such as transition metal complexes, with a primary but not exclusive focus on electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy, and to couple these approaches with explicit treatment of solvation.

The candidate will be a member of the RESOLV Graduate School and will have the opportunity to pursue pioneering research on theoretical spectroscopy, computational chemistry and solvation science, both individually and collaboratively, working in the stimulating environment of a highly active and internationally renowned theoretical chemistry department of the Max Planck Society.

Qualifications: Degree in Chemistry or Physics and Master's degree in Theoretical or Computational Chemistry. Solid experience in at least one of these fields is required: 1) electronic structure of open-shell systems, 2) spectroscopy of open-shell systems, 3) QM/MM/MD methods with explicit solvation. Excellent English speaking and writing skills are essential.

Application: Women and qualified individuals with disabilities are explicitly encouraged to apply.

Please send electronic versions of your documents and address all enquiries to Dr. Dimitrios Pantazis (contact details shown below). Application documents must include a curriculum vitae, a motivation letter, a description of your master's thesis and its relevance to the project, and a copy of your degree certificates. At least two reference letters should be included or sent independently by the referees at the time of the application. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

The expected starting date is no later than September 1, 2016.
