  • Mathematics / Natural Sciences
  • Subjects Computational Chemistry Description The PULS Group (Physics Underlying Life Science) led by Prof. Ana-Sunčana Smith offers PhD/PostDoc positions starting 01.03.2022 on topics associated with molecular modelling of active processes at dynamic solid liquid interfaces including advanced material interfaces, catalytic interfaces and porous structures. The group is renowned for its contributions to the field of computational modelling of dynamic and catalytic processes taking place at molecular solid or liquid interfaces. On these topics we have currently two theoretical positions open. Here, outstanding candidates with interest in molecular modelling or computational chemistry are welcome to apply. The candidates will be trained in advanced computational techniques, which may involve high- performance computing simulations, density functional or ab initio calculations and state of the art QM/MM approaches. Candidates with background in (theoretical) chemistry, theoretical physics, molecular sciences or related fields will be considered. More information about the work of the Group: www.

    What you can expect: We will offer you the possibility to perform research within an international and interdisciplinary team in a highly innovative and active research area combining mechanics, material sciences, mathematics, chemistry, and physics. We strongly promote collaborations with experimental colleagues. By joining PULS, many opportunities for advancement and continuous training are offered within integrated graduate programs SFB1411, SFB 1452, and FRASCAL RTG. Your work location will be at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen- Nürnberg, that is one of the largest and most innovative universities in Germany. You will have access to state of the art facility and computer resources through NHR@FAU, and excellent conditions within Remuneration is at E 13 TV- L (67%) according to the German public service salary scale.

    You are eligible to apply if: - you are an excellent student holding or are about to obtain a M.Sc. degree in one of the following areas: theoretical or computational chemistry, theoretical or computational physics, modelling in molecular sciences or in a closely related field - you are proficient in the English language; knowledge of the German language is welcome but not compulsory - you have strong interpersonal skills and are able to work in a team

    Necessary documents: - Letter of motivation (max. 1 page) including a type of projects you are interested in - a copy of Bachelor and Master degree (if available) - academic transcripts (with grades and rankings) - brief summary of Master´s thesis (max. 1 page) - short CV - list of publications (if any) - names of at least 2 senior scientists that could write a recommendation letter For all additional information feel free to contact Prof. Smith by email:

    We encourage all excellent candidates interested in these positions to contact Prof. Smith, via the above email, to resolve any potential question regarding a potential project. After initial inspection of the application, a personalized interview will be organised for selected candidates.

    Please send your application by mail to Christiane Huck-Stiasny (

    In case of e-mail application, all the requested documents must be collected in a single pdf file that must not exceed 10 MB. If you have any questions concerning a specific project please contact Prof. Smith by email.
