Subject: 19.07.26 PhD Position in Computational Biophysics/-chemistry
A PhD position in  Computational Biophysics/chemistry is available in the group of Prof. Ulrich Kleinekathoefer at Jacobs University Bremen,
Germany. The position is focused on multi-scale modeling of excitation energy transfer in light-harvesting complexes. The respective
research will involve density functional theory, molecular dynamics as well as quantum dynamical simulations. This project is in close 
collaboration with the group of Prof. Marcus Elstner at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

The group of Prof. Ulrich Kleinekathoefer is located at Jacobs University Bremen,  a private, state-accredited, English-language research
university. The research group focuses on modeling dynamical process in (bio)molecular systems using quantum and classical approaches and
especially combinations thereof. Molecular simulations of light-harvesting complexes and membrane proteins are at the center of the research. 
For more details see

The successful candidates should hold a master degree in theoretical (bio)physics or theoretical (bio)chemistry (potentially with an 
experience in high-performance computer simulations of biological systems). Solid knowledge in the theory of molecular systems and skills in
molecular dynamics simulations are highly desirable. Proficiency in scripting and programming, in particular analysis tools, would be
beneficial. A good command of English is essential, both as the local working language and because of our international collaborations.
The PhD 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
