Postdoctoral position, Justus Liebig University Giessen, Germany

The postdoctoral position is available in the group of Prof. Dr. Doreen Mollenhauer ( ) at Justus Liebig University Giessen, Germany, starting as soon as possible.

In this position you will have the opportunity to contribute to the investigation of proton conductivity in solid-state electrolytes for efficient low-temperature electrochemical ammonia synthesis. You will work in a highly collaborative research environment with experimental and theoretical groups.

Your role will be to

  • Perform quantum chemical calculations related to ammonia synthesis and solid synthesis and solid proton conductors
  • Characterise and analyse the geometric and electronic electronic structures
  • Study the reaction mechanisms taking into account different catalysts
  • Investigation of the structure of proton conductors and description of ion transport
  • Methods: density functional theory, semi-empirical methods, molecular dynamics molecular dynamics simulations, genetic genetic algorithms and machine learning

More detailed information about the project can be found at

We welcome candidates with a university qualification (MSc or equivalent) in Physics / Chemistry / Materials Science with a theoretical background as well as a Doctoral degree in theoretical chemistry or material modelling.

Please use the online form provided in the job advertisement and apply by application by May 19th, 2023.
