Subject: 19.09.03 PhD Position, Machine Learning Potentials, Goettingen, Germany
Ph.D. Student Position in Theoretical Chemistry (all genders welcome) Georg-August-Universitaet Goettingen, Germany A Ph.D. position is available in the group of Professor Joerg Behler, Theoretical Chemistry, Georg-August-Universitaet Goettingen, Germany (www.theochem.uni-goettingen.de). The main topic of the project is the development of novel atomistic potentials employing machine learning methods, in particular artificial neural networks, and the implementation of these methods in parallel computer codes. Machine learning potentials are a rapidly evolving field and allow to perform large-scale simulations including thousands of atoms on long time scales with the accuracy of electronic structure methods. 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 in-house. 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 software for challenging applications in the field of atomistic simulations. The ideal candidate is familiar with Linux/Unix and has some background in electronic structure theory (DFT) and/or molecular dynamics. Programming experience (Fortran, Python, C and/or C++) is highly advantageous and should be described in the motivation letter in detail. Excellent communication skills in English are mandatory. German language skills are advantageous but not essential. Please send your application with the keyword CCL-9-2019 as one single pdf file including a CV, a motivation letter, copies of university certificates (BSc and MSc, in German or English), English language certificates, a description of programming experience and contact addresses of two academic references (letters are not yet needed) by email to Prof. Dr. Joerg Behler Theoretische Chemie Institut fuer Physikalische Chemie Georg-August-Universitt Goettingen Tammannstr. 6 37077 Goettingen, Germany Email: joerg.behler*uni-goettingen.de Only complete applications will be considered. The evaluation of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. The University of Goettingen is an equal opportunity employer and we particularly welcome applications from women.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
