Description

The Theoretical Chemistry group in the Department of Chemistry is inviting applications for a position as „Wiss. Mitarbeiterin“, i.e.

PhD candidate (all genders) – 50 %

available from the next possible starting date with a fixed-term contract of initially three years.

The role includes contributions to research and teaching in the area ‘Theoretical Chemistry', especially the quantum chemical description of transition metal complexes.

The position is advertised in the context of SPP 2101 ‘Light controlled reactivity of metal complexes', which focuses on a basic understanding of photoinduced metal-centered processes and the dynamics of electronically excited states of metal complexes. The project investigates the light-driven generation of metallonitrene complexes for nitrogen transfer photocatalysis. The main objective is the quantum chemical description of the electronic structure, spectroscopic properties and reactivity of transition metal complexes in their electronic ground and excited states. While entirely computational, the project will be carried out in close collaboration with collaboration partners from synthesis and spectroscopy.

The candidate should have a university undergraduate degree in any discipline of the natural sciences. Good knowledge of inorganic chemistry, the chemistry of transition metals, homogeneous catalysis and/or photochemistry are expected. Knowledge of a Linux computing environment will be beneficial. Basic programming skills may be helpful but are not expected. All teaching duties can be carried out in either English or German.

Opportunity for further qualification (doctoral dissertation) is given. The fulfillment of the duties likewise enables the scientific qualifications of the candidate.

The Technische Universität Darmstadt intends to increase the number of female employees and encourages female candidates to apply. In case of equal qualifications applicants with a degree of disability of at least 50 or equal will be given preference. Wages and salaries are according to the collective agreements on salary scales, which apply to the Technische Universität Darmstadt (TV-TU Darmstadt).

For enquiries regarding this opening please contact Prof. Dr. Vera Krewald by e-mail. Interested candidates should submit their application electronically as a single PDF containing the usual documents (cover letter, CV, list of publications, credentials or certificates, names of two referees, other supporting documents) and quoting the reference number below by e-mail to dekanat ‚at‘ chemie.tu-darmstadt.de.

By submitting your application, you agree that your data may be stored and processed for the purpose of filling the vacancy. You can find our privacy policy on our webpage.
