Subject: 18.11.26 PhD and postdoc positions in computational nanoscience - Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany
The newly founded graduate school "Tailored Scale-Bridging Approaches to
Computational Nanoscience" (DFG RTG 2450) addresses the development and
application of multi-scale approaches to the scientific challenges of
friction, materials aging, material design and biological function.
In detail, the specific projects will focus on:
a) friction between inorganic and biological materials
b) reactions on semiconductor surfaces
c) electron and exciton migration in organic electronics, and
d) biochemical reactions in proteins undergoing large structural changes.
To tackle these problems, methods of ab initio quantum chemistry,
force-field and coarse-grained approaches up to phenomenological approaches
will be combined. These complex multi-scale frameworks will utilize
work-flow engineering on high-performance computing architectures.

We are seeking
a) 15 PhD researchers with strong backgrounds in physical/theoretical
   chemistry, computational physics/chemistry, computational materials
   science, applied mathematics or related areas, and
b) one postdoctoral researcher with strong computational skills in
   the development of multiscale workflow engineering and its application
   to virtual materials development.
We expect the ability and desire to work in interdisciplinary teams,
combining the expertise of the different participating laboratories.

The graduate school, and all of the positions start on April 1, 2019.
