Subject: 18.12.16 PhD position in Computational Molecular Biophysics/chemistry
A PhD position in  Computational Molecular Biophysics/chemistry is
available in the group of Prof. Ulrich Kleinekathoefer at Jacobs University
Bremen, Germany. The position is focused on multi-scale modeling of
excitation energy transfer in light-harvesting complexes. The respective
research will involve density functional theory, molecular dynamics as well
as quantum dynamical simulations. This project is in close collaboration
with the group of Prof. Marcus Elstner at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

The group of Prof. Ulrich Kleinekathoefer is located at Jacobs University
Bremen,  a private, state-accredited, English-language research
university. The research group focuses on modeling dynamical process in
(bio)molecular systems using quantum and classical approaches and
especially combinations thereof. Molecular simulations of light-harvesting
complexes and membrane proteins are at the center of the research. For more
details see

The successful candidates should hold a master degree in theoretical
(bio)physics or theoretical (bio)chemistry (potentially with
an experience in high-performance computer simulations of biological
systems). Solid knowledge in the theory of molecular systems  and skills in
molecular dynamics simulations are highly desirable. Proficiency in
scripting and programming, in particular analysis tools, would be
beneficial. A good command of English is essential, both as the local
working language and because of our international collaborations.
The position is available immediately and applications will be considered
until the position is filled. Applicants should submit a CV, a brief
statement of research interests, and the names of two referees by e-mail to
