Junior Professorship in Theoretical Chemistry of Materials Design (W1 with tenure track leading to W2)
The Faculty of Chemistry and Mineralogy seeks to fill the following tenure track professorship, funded by the Tenure Track Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States, from October 1, 2022
Junior Professorship in Theoretical Chemistry of Materials Design
(W1 with tenure track leading to W2)
The research groups of the Faculty of Chemistry and Mineralogy actively target the advancement of the transdisciplinary foci "Chemistry in Microspace", "Materials and Energy", "Sustainable Multifunctional Catalysis" and "Chemical Theranostics". There is particularly close networking with the neighboring faculties of Physics and Earth Sciences, of Life Sciences and the Faculty of Medicine, e.g. via the BuildMoNa graduate school, as well as the university research profile areas "Sustainable Systems and Biodiversity", "Complex Matter" and "Molecular and Cellular Communication". Fruitful collaborations with non-university institutions in Leipzig, such as the Leibniz Institutes for Surface Modification and for Tropospheric Research, the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research, the Helmholtz Centre Dresden Rossendorf - Leipzig Branch and the University's Biotechnological-Biomedical Center, strategically complement the research profile of the faculty.
Development and application of quantum chemical methods, preferably using future-oriented, theoretical approaches such as machine learning or deep learning. The goal may be to generate and analyze design concepts for novel functional nanomaterials (e.g., nanoparticles, low-dimensional materials, hybrid materials), especially for applications in energy storage and conversion. The professorship participates in the teaching duties of the faculty, especially in the bachelor's, master's and teacher training and master's degree programmes of chemistry.
In addition to developing an independent research profile, the professorship should also contribute to, complement and help develop the existing research priorities of the faculty, the strategic research fields of the university as well as existing and planned research networks.
