Subject: 18.12.27 PhD Position in Computational Chemistry, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
PhD position: Quantum chemical studies of degradation mechanisms in organic electronics Job description: The PhD position is available in the Research Training Group (RTG) 2450 "Tailored Scale-Bridging Approaches to Computational Nanoscience" (www.compnano.kit.edu) within Research Project P2 "Degradation Mechanisms in Organic Electronics". The quantum chemical aspect of Research Project P2 is the modeling of excited states of relevant (charged) molecular building blocks by employing a range of quantum-chemistry methods such as time-dependent density-functional theory, the Bethe-Salpeter equation, and approximate linear-response coupled-cluster theory, embedded in the environment of the organic- electronics material, to understand the degradation which leads to reduced lifetimes of the material. The objectives of the PhD project are twofold. One objective is to develop further the ab initio methods required for RTG-specific computations, with emphasis on time-dependent density-functional theory applied to molecular systems with emphasis on energy- and charge transport and their degradation mechanisms. The second objective is to apply a wide range of computational chemistry methods and program packages for the cross-sectional support of other research projects of the RTG. Personal qualification: M.Sc. degree in chemistry with emphasis on method development and applications in the area of ab initio quantum chemistry. Detailed knowledge of at least one major quantum chemistry program package and solid programming experience in FORTRAN are required. Organizational unit: Institute of Physical Chemistry (IPC) Salary: The salary is based on the wage agreement for public service in the state Baden-Wuerttemberg (TV-L, 75% E 13). Starting date: 1 April 2019 Contract duration: Limited to 3 years. Contact persons: For further information, please contact Dr. Hoefener, phone: +49 721 608-43321, e-mail: sebastian.hoefener2(a)kit.edu, or Prof. Klopper, phone: +49 721 608-47263, e-mail: willem.klopper(a)kit.edu. Application: Please send your application until 31 January 2019 as a single pdf file by email to sabine.holthoff(a)kit.edu.
