We seek a postdoctoral researcher with a background of theoretical physics or chemistry and strong computational skills in the development and application of methods for virtual materials design and accelerated simulation methods. Candidates should have expertise in computational or quantum chemistry, theoretical physics, or related areas. We expect the ability and desire to work in a heterogeneous interdisciplinary environment, strong research skills, and a history of innovation and accomplishment documented by a strong academic record. Prior involvement in the development of complex computational methods and appropriate skills in software engineering using state-of-the-art object-oriented languages would be very beneficial. Experience in high-performance computing is also beneficial.
Payment will be according to the German federal payscale. The position is offered for 2 years and can be extended when funding is available.
