Research Associate (PHD Student) (f/m/d) for the Project "Nanohybrid" in two theoretical Subprojects
As a University of Excellence, Universität Hamburg is one of the strongest research universities in Germany. As a flagship university in the greater Hamburg region, it
nurtures innovative, co-operative contacts to partners within and outside academia. It also provides and promotes sustainable education, knowledge, and knowledge exchange locally,
nationally, and internationally.The Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Natural Sciences, Department of Chemistry and Department of Physics invites applications for
2 RESEARCH ASSOCIATEs (PHD Students) FOR THE PROJECT "Nanohybrid"
in two theoretical Subprojects
The positions in accordance with Section 28 subsection 3 of the Hamburg higher education act (Hamburgisches Hochschulgesetz, HmbHG) commence on April 1, 2020.
There are a fixed-term contracts in accordance with Section 2 of the academic fixed-term labor contract act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz, WissZeitVG). The terms
are fixed for a period of 3 years. The positions call for 50 % of standard work hours per week. Full-time positions currently comprise 39 hours per week.
Duties include academic services in the project named above. Research associates may also pursue independent research and further academic qualifications.
The DFG-funded Research Training Group NANOHYBRID (GRK 2536) includes 15 research projects in the fields of chemical synthesis, physical characterization, and theoretical modeling.
Within a strongly interdisciplinary approach, the members of the Research Training Group will develop innovative methods to tailor the shape and function of nanoscopic systems using
modern concepts of inorganic, macromolecular, and theoretical chemistry. An essential characteristic of the research and training program is the strong interaction between experiment
and theory, which will lead to a deep understanding of the collective properties of inorganic hybrid structures.
Further information on the conception of the Research Training Group are summarized at:
The application, selection and recruitment processes are well advanced. It is still possible to apply for two theory projects.
The two 3-year positions in Theoretical Chemistry/Nanoscience are available in the groups of Gabriel Bester and Carmen Herrmann: https://www.chemie.uni-hamburg.de/institute/pc/arbeitsgruppen/bester.html,
The research will focus on
Bester group: developing and applying methods for evaluating exciton-plasmon couplings and optical properties in semiconducting dot-rod/metal hybrid systems, or
Herrmann group: developing and applying methods towards automated decision strategies in simulating molecule-bridged nanoparticle hybrid systems.
Both will be done in close collaboration with experimentally working colleagues within the Research Training Group.
A university degree in a relevant field. I.e., Chemistry, Physics, or Nanoscience.
Applicants should have a strong interest in theoretical chemistry or theoretical physics, a (prospective) master's degree or equivalent in chemistry, physics, nanoscience, or a related subject, and good basic knowledge of theoretical chemistry or solid-state physics. Solid English skills (both written and oral) are mandatory, knowledge of (or the willingness to learn) German as well as programming skills are a plus.
The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg promotes equal opportunity. As women are currently underrepresented in this job category at Universität Hamburg according to the evaluation conducted under the Hamburg act on gender equality (Hamburgisches Gleichstellungsgesetz, HambGleiG), we encourage women to apply for these positions. Equally qualified and suitable female applicants will receive preference.
Qualified disabled candidates or applicants with equivalent status receive preference in the application process.
For further information, please consult our website at www.grk-nanohybrid.uni-hamburg.de. Applicants should firstly study the Research Training Group's web page to familiarize themselves with the specific research projects of the scientific program and the application procedure.
Applications should include a prioritization of preferred research projects supported by a one-page motivation letter, curriculum vitae, the master thesis, and degree certificates.
Please send applications as a single PDF file by March 19, 2020, to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please do not submit original documents as we are not able to return them. Any documents submitted will be destroyed after the application process has concluded.
