PhD or PostDoc position „ Thermochemistry of clusters and transition states “, Model-Based Fuel Design group within the Tailor-Made Fuels from Biomass cluster of excellence, RWTH Aachen University.
You will work on the development, the implementation (in a python tool), the validation, and the application of approximation schemes beyond the rigid-rotor harmonic-oscillator and 1-dimensional hindered rotor approximations for the motion of the nuclei in molecules since better approximations are required for softly bound clusters and transition states. You will use the results in cooperations to compute rate coefficients for ignition delay times of bio-fuels and equation of state parameters for associating fuel, drug, and polymer systems.
We expect a high proficiency level in English or German and the ability to work independently and in a team. A strong background in statistical physics and/or quantum mechanics is required.
This is a full-time TV-L E13 position for initially 18 months. Send your application to: Prof. Dr. K. Leonhard ([log in to unmask], for more details, see http://www.ltt.rwth-aachen.de/en/institute/jobs/jobs/job/Research_Assistant_or_PostDoc_Thermochemistry_of_clusters_and_transition_states-1/).
