Subject: 19.01.10 PhD/postdoc positions at the interface of computational materials science and molecular biophysics in Heidelberg, Germany
We seek to fill 
2 PhD and 2 postdoc positions (m/f)
to work at the interface of computational materials science and molecular 
biophysics. We are looking for excellent, highly motivated researchers to 
join our research team. 
You will work on molecular processes and fracture mechanisms of complex 
polymeric or biological materials, using scale-bridging simulations. 
Application areas range from novel polymeric metamaterials and their 
interactions with biological cells to biological lubricants and ionomers. 
The projects are integrated into highly interdisciplinary and collaborative
research environments: the newly established graduate school 
Tailored Scale-Bridging Approaches to Computational Nanoscience 
(http://www.compnano.kit.edu), the newly established cluster of excellence 
3D Matter made to order (http://www.3dmattermadetoorder.kit.edu), or our 
longstanding research collaboration with Toyota Europe.

You will work in the Molecular Biomechanics Group, which focuses on the
link between mechanical forces, materials and biology by developing and
using novel algorithms based on Molecular Dynamics simulations, coarse-grained
models, and Finite Element methods. You will be based at the Heidelberg 
Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS gGmbH). HITS offers an exceptional
research setting and an excellent computational infrastructure. 
You should preferably have experience in numerical simulations and 
should possess a Master's degree in physics, chemistry or a related 
discipline (for PhD candidates). You should possess a PhD degree in 
computational physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering or a related 
field, and a firm background in molecular simulations (for postdoc 
candidates). You should have a strong interest in interdisciplinary 
research.

The intended starting date is April 2019 and negotiable.

To apply, please hand in a motivation letter, CV with publications, certificates,
and contact information of three references (in a single pdf) 
a) for the postdoc positions via the HITS online application system 
https://application.h-its.org/intern/register.php?id=368bua1

b) for the PhD positions directly to Frauke Grter (frauke.graeter_._h-its.org).
