Junior Professorship (W1, tenure track) in Multi-scale Modeling of Heterogenous Catalysis in Energy Systems
RWTH Aachen University is one of Germany‘s pre-eminent Uni¬versities of Excellence, which entails the highest quality in teaching and world-class research. RWTH addresses bold, scientific questions; it also assumes a profound responsibility toward soci¬ety and transfers its knowledge into meaningful applications. RWTH strives for the convergence of knowledge, methods, and findings from its research fields and integrates in-depth disciplinary knowledge into interdisciplinary research consortia represented as profile areas. The university‘s dynamic, creative, and international environment encompasses efficient research networks, institutionalized cooperations, and, most of all, the innovative RWTH Campus-Project which harbors one of the most extensive technology-oriented research landscapes in Europe.
Junior Professor (W1, tenure track)
in Multi-scale Modeling of Heterogenous
Catalysis in Energy Systems
Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
This is a junior professorship appointment with tenure track towards a W2 professorship. It is funded by the Tenure-Track-Program of the German Federal Government and the Federal States. More information about the tenure track process can be found online at www.rwth-aachen.de/tenuretrack.
We are seeking qualified applicants for teaching and research in the area of Multi-scale Modeling of Heterogenous Catalysis in Energy Systems. The starting date is as soon as possible. Computational design is one of the cornerstones in modern development of materials and interface structure for heterogeneous catalysis. Due to the multiscale nature of energy systems such as batteries, fuel cells, or exhaust gas aftertreatment systems, their computational modeling strongly benefits from molecular level simulations and their interpretation in the context of the macroscopic effects at the system scale level of the technical process. Applicants should have expertise in simulation methods such as quantum chemistry and molecular dynamics simulations, their application for energy systems, and methods for computational design (e.g. screening methods, molecular descriptors).
You should have a completed university degree and a special aptitude for scientific work which is generally verified by means of an outstanding doctorate. Ability in and commitment to teaching are essential. The application should include supporting documents regarding success in teaching. German is not necessary to begin but will be expected as a teaching language within 5 years.
Experience with teaching in Quantum and Molecular Simulation Methods for students of mechanical engineering is an advantage. International visibility and strong publication record on a junior researcher level is expected.
