Promotionsstelle: Vibrational spectroscopy meets theory

A call was open for 1 Ph.D. position (3 years, 65% E13 TV-L) on the topic of vibrational spectroscopy of molecules in a controlled environment. The application deadline was 01.03.2019.




Bench Project IQuantum chemistry is best at calculating isolated molecules at 0 K. Chemists like to study them with some thermal excitation, embedded in a solvent. We aim to provide bridges between these two worlds. Supersonic jet spectroscopy offers rigorous answers for well-defined partial problems such as stepwise solvation and mode-selective thermal excitation. In this project, interesting model systems are put under spectroscopic scrutiny by adding weak solvent perturbations and by exciting selected vibrational modes. Weak hydrogen bonding, vibrational mode coupling and shock heating will be explored to tame the complexity of environmentally influenced molecules and to benchmark both electronic structure and nuclear dynamics theory.

Postdoctoral research fellow

in the German Research Foundation (DFG)-funded Research Training Group 2455 "BENCh- Benchmark Experiments in Numerical Quantum Chemistry". The application window will be open up to 19.10.2018. The position is remunerated with 100% E 13 TV-L with a limited contract of 2 years. The earliest starting date will be 01.01.2019.

Your profile
• You hold a PhD in theoretical chemistry,
• are interested in pursuing a career as independent researcher,
• are proficient in English.

The BENCh Research Training Group (BENCh RTG) consists of a high-level research programme aiming to provide landmark experiments for quantum chemical methods benchmarking. The topics will span from gas phase spectrometry, molecular beam techniques, synthesis to X-ray diffraction. A strong connection between theoretical chemistry and experiment builds the core for the projects. The postdoctoral researcher is expected to develop a research plan under the general topic of theory development and modelling in close connection with one or more of the research projects funded in the initiative. The latter should be a stepping stone for third-party funding applications and establishment of an independent research group in accordance with the Faculty’s career development plan. Candidates should have a strong profile in theoretical chemistry, preferably with 1-3 years of postdoctoral training. For more information consult the official homepage http://bench.uni-goettingen.de. Detailed descriptions of the BENCh RTG projects are also available on the homepage.

The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply in fields in which they are underrepresented. The university has committed itself to being a family-friendly institution and supports their employees in balancing work and family life. The mission of the University is to employ a greater number of severely disabled persons. Applications from severely disabled persons with equivalent qualifications will be given preference.

Your application must include:
• curriculum vitae with a publication list
• short description of planned research
• certificates of studies
• certificates of language proficiency if non-native speaker of english (e.g., TOEFL)
• two references (name and contact information of two senior researchers)

The documents are to be submitted by electronic form (single PDF file) up to October 19, 2018 following the instructions on the Open Positions page under the main website http://bench.uni-goettingen.de. The deadline for submission is 20:00 (CET) 19.10.2018.
