Subject: 17.03.28 PhD Position in Multiscale Quantum-Classical Simulations of Excitation Dynamics
Applications are invited for a PhD position in quantum-classical simulations
of excitation dynamics in biological and bio-inspired systems within the 
DFG-funded Research Training Group (RTG) "Quantum Mechanical Materials 
Modelling (QM3)" located in Bremen, Germany ( The position 
is available in the research group of Prof. Ulrich Kleinekathoefer at the 
Department of Physics and Earth Sciences, Jacobs University Bremen 

The PhD project will focus on a combination of molecular dynamics 
simulations, electronic structure calculations and quantum dynamics to model 
the initial steps in light harvesting.  The systems will include complexes 
with pigments in biological environments but also pigments at surfaces. Aim 
is to mimic some of the important properties of biological systems in 
man-made systems at surfaces.

The successful candidate should have a Master of Science with a background 
in physics or chemistry and a strong academic record. Applicants must be 
highly motivated for doctoral studies, possess the ability to work 
independently as well as good levels of cooperative and communicative 
abilities. 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 
Prof. Ulrich Kleinekathoefer at u.kleinekathoefer ..
