Subject: 17.10.30 Postdoc (f/m) with a PhD degree in Theoretical Chemistry, Max-Planck-Institut fuer Chemische Energiekonversion, Muelheim, Germany

The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion in Mülheim an der Ruhr has been reestablished 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.

The department "Molecular Theory and Spectroscopy" is presently looking for a candidate for a
Postdoc (f/m)
with a PhD degree in Theoretical Chemistry.

The postdoctoral position is available in the group of Dr. Giovanni Bistoni in the framework of computational chemistry applications.

The position is available immediately, preferably no later than January 2018. The positions are initially for 12 months with an option of renewal for two more years and are remunerated according to the labor agreement for public service (TVöD), E13.

Job Description: The MPI CEC is presently looking for a candidate with a strong background in theoretical and computational chemistry. The candidate will be supervised by Dr. Giovanni Bistoni and will carry out an exciting project on the topic Application of highly correlated methods in homogeneous catalysis. The candidate will carry out pioneering research in a wide range of quantum chemistry applications, ranging from mechanistic studies of chemical reactions of importance in homogeneous catalysis to in-depth studies of the electronic structure of chemically interesting systems. Collaborations with experimentally working as well as other theory groups are anticipated.

Qualifications: PhD degree in theoretical chemistry with emphasis on computational chemistry. The candidate must have experience in the application of electronic structure theory and computational methods to the study of chemical reaction mechanisms. Knowledge about coupled cluster theory and elementary skills in computer programming would be appreciated.

Application: The Max Planck Society explicitly encourages women to apply. Furthermore the Max Planck Society wishes to increase the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.

Please send electronic versions of your documents and address all enquiries to Dr. Giovanni Bistoni (contact details shown below). Please state the reference code GB001 in your application. Application documents must include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae with the contact details of two referees and a copy of your degree certificate.

The expected starting date is no later than January 2018.
