Subject: 16.11.04 Post-doctoral reseacher for the Atomically Resolved Dynamics Group, MPSD, Hamburg
The Max Planck Society is Germany's premier research organization. The 83 
Max Planck Institutes conduct research at highest levels, in the service 
of the general public, in the natural sciences, life sciences, social 
sciences, and the humanities.

The Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) 
investigates dynamical phenomena within matter, studying processes on the 
elementary time- and length-scales of atomic and electronic motions: the 
femtosecond or attosecond timescale and Angstrom length scale.

The Institute is also a partner in the Center for Free-Electron Laser 
Science (CFEL), collaborating with the Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron
(DESY) and the University of Hamburg for the development of science based
on the X-ray Free Electron Lasers.

We are seeking

Post-doctoral reseachers for the Atomically Resolved Dynamics Group (m/f)

Your position:

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher in molecular 
simulation to join the research group of Prof. R. J. Dwayne Miller at the 
Atomically Resolved Dynamics Department  of the Max Planck Institute for 
the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg. The aim of the post is to 
construct theoretical models and provide mechanistic insights into 
ultrafast processes at the single-molecule level under investigation by 
the group, in areas including:

- reactions of molecules in high vibrational states
- photorelaxation dynamics of biomolecules
- photoisomerization reactions

Your qualifications:

We are looking for highly qualified candidates in Chemistry, Materials 
Science, Physics or a closely  related field. A strong background in 
theoretical and computational chemistry, photochemistry or chemical 
physics is essential.

The successful candidate will possess excellent communication skills to 
collaborate with experimentalist colleagues at the Atomically Resolved 
Dynamics Department. The project requires a strong background in relevant 
electronic structure methods and the computational modeling of 
reaction dynamics, especially non-adiabatic processes.

You must be fluent in English. 

Our offer:

We offer an innovative environment, which will give you the opportunity to
develop your own ideas at the forefront of ultrafast science embedded in 
the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL).

We offer a position according to the German public pay scale (TVoD). The 
appointment is for 1 up to 3 years depending on your qualifications.

The Max Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer. The goal is to 
enhance the percentage of women in functions where they are 
underrepresented. Women, therefore, are especially encouraged to apply.

The Society is committed to employing more handicapped people. 
Applications of handicapped people are particularly welcome.

Your application:

To apply, please complete the online application form. Applications should 
include a letter of motivation, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications,
a summary of past accomplishments, and the full contact details of two
referees (or letters of recommendation). If you are interested in this
position please apply in English only and submit your application by 
December 20th, 2016.
