Computational Chemistry PostDoc or Group Leader Position @ Max Planck Germany

Computational Chemistry PostDoc or Group Leader Position @ Max Planck Germany: The Max Planck Society is Germany’s most successful research organization. Since its establishment in 1948, no fewer than 18 Nobel laureates have emerged from the ranks of its scientists, putting it on a par with the best and most prestigious research institutions worldwide. The more than 15,000 publications each year in internationally renowned scientific journals are proof of the outstanding research work conducted at Max Planck Institutes – and many of those articles are among the most-cited publications in the relevant field. Computational Chemistry PostDoc or Group Leader Position @ Max Planck Germany

Postdoc or Group Leader Position (Computational Chemistry)

Job Offer from April 24, 2017

Computational Chemistry PostDoc or Group Leader Position @ Max Planck Germany

The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion in Mülheim an der Ruhr was re-established in 2012 and the field of research was aligned with the conversion of energy. Our scientists are engaged in basic processes that are essential within the storage and conversion of energy.

The department of “Inorganic Spectroscopy” is currently looking for candidate for a Postdoc or Group Leader Position with a PhD degree in Computational Chemistry.

The position is available in the Department of Inorganic Spectroscopy. The successful candidate will be supervised by Prof. Serena DeBeer and work closely with the X-ray spectroscopy research team.

The position is initially for 12 months and will be remunerated according to the labor agreement for public service (TVöD). A prolongation is possible, with a postdoctoral appointment possible for up to three years and a group leader appointment for up to five years. Appointment at the level of group leader requires at least two years of relevant postdoctoral experience and demonstrated potential for scientific leadership and independence. Group leaders are permitted and also encouraged to apply for independent funding. The position is non-tenurable.

Job Description

The appointed researcher will work closely with the experimental X-ray spectroscopy team in order to simulate, predict and interpret experimental X-ray spectra using advanced theoretical approaches. The candidate will also have the opportunity to collaborate with the team of Prof. Neese (the lead author of the ORCA quantum chemistry code). The MPI CEC provides a unique environment, which brings together state-of-the-art experimental approaches with theory to understand challenging question in energy research. This position thus provides the possibility to conduct pioneering research at the interface of theory and experiment.

Qualifications

PhD degree (and possible post-doctoral experience) in computational chemistry or a related discipline. The candidate should have a strong background in applied computational chemistry, a solid understanding of spectroscopy, and a sound foundation in basic concepts of molecular orbital and ligand field theory.

Application

The Max Planck Society explicitly encourages women to apply. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society wishes to increase the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.

Please send your application in digital form to the contact stated below. Please state the reference code “SD003” in your application. Application documents must include a cover letter with description of past experience, curriculum vitae with the contact details of three referees, and a copy of your degree certificate. Potential group leader candidates should also include a 3-page research statement of future research plans. The research statement should include both potential collaborative projects (with DeBeer and Neese), as well as an independent research proposal.

Closing date: August 15, 2017
