Subject: 19.03.13 PhD position in Computational Chemistry, SciClus, Jena, Germany
Developing quantum mechanical models to account for complex environments: From solution to membranes and cells (ESR 4) as part of the EU Research Framework Marie Skodowska-Curie Actions (see http://logiclab-itn.eu/) Candidates with a background in physics, chemistry, or informatics are invited to apply for a PhD position. You will be registered at Friedrich Schiller University Jena (FSU) to obtain the PhD degree. The aim of the doctoral project is to identify methods that are best suited (fastest at sufficient accuracy) to account for the influence of solvents and electrolytes, particularly specific interactions beyond continuum models, on absorption and fluorescence spectra as well as fluorescence life times. The candidate will study interactions between molecules and environments at systematically varied model complexities. Thus, the fellow will be able to apply the most suitable models to predict optimum molecular functionalizations for ideal anchoring of dyes in membranes. Beyond such thermodynamical calculations on molecular ground states the candidate will model the influence of such dye-environment interactions on properties of photoexcited states, particularly fluorescence spectra and lifetimes. We offer: * Highly competitive and attractive salaries according to regulations of Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions are offered, plus mobility and family allowances as applicable. The successful candidate will be part of an excellent international research team and benefit from the scientific and complementary training programme of the EU-funded Innovative Training Network (ITN), Logic Lab. * several months secondments at different accademic and industrial places Requirements: * Master/Engineering degree in Physics, Chemistry or Informatics, preferably with majors in theoretical chemistry, theoretical physics, or computational materials modelling. * The candidate should have good knowledge and interest in both experimental and theoretical work. Interest in the field of photochemistry, photophysics and molecular modelling is required. Knowledge in the field of (bio)chemical sensing, quantum chemistry are great assets. * Background in scientific programming and scripting and computing experience under Linux (python, C++, shell-scripting) * Fluent communication skills in English, both spoken and written are required. * Candidates will be required to meet the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher eligibility criteria (http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/) In particular, at the time of appointment candidates must have had less than four years full-time equivalent research experience and must not have already obtained a PhD. Additionally, they must not have resided in Germany for more than 12 months in the three years immediately before the appointment. As an equal opportunity employer SciClus is committed to increase the percentage of female scientists and therefore especially encourages them to apply. Planned start date: 1st May 2019, latest 1st September 2019 http://logiclab-itn.eu/?p=1564 https://www.sciclus.de
