Subject: 17.05.04 PhD Position in Theoretical Chemistry, University of Goettingen, Germany
A fully funded (50 % E13 TV-L) Ph.D. position in theoretical chemistry 
is immediately available in the group of Professor Joerg Behler at the 
Georg-August-Universitaet Goettingen, Germany. 

The project in the field of theoretical surface science involves the 
development of novel efficient and accurate interatomic potentials based 
on electronic structure calculations and machine learning techniques. 
The potentials will be applied to large-scale state-of-the-art molecular 
dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations of complex chemical processes at 
interfaces, in particular but not exclusively at solid-liquid interfaces. 
The project will be carried out in close collaboration with experimental 
groups in Goettingen.

The University of Goettingen is one of the leading research universities 
in Germany offering an exciting interdisciplinary environment and 
excellent facilities including several high-performance computing 
clusters on site. 

Interested candidates should hold a M.Sc. in chemistry, physics or a 
related field and should be highly motivated to develop state-of-the-art 
simulation tools for challenging applications in the field of atomistic 
Strong backgrounds in electronic structure theory (DFT) and molecular 
dynamics, familiarity with Linux as well as experience in Fortran 
programming are advantageous but not essential. Excellent communication 
skills in English are mandatory. German language skills are advantageous 
but not essential. 

Please send your application including a CV, a motivation letter, 
copies of university certificates (BSc and MSc, in German or English) 
and contact addresses of two academic references preferably by email 
as pdf to
