The Institute of Physical Chemistry (work group Prof. Dr. Doreen Mollenhauer), Faculty of Biology and Chemistry invites applications for a part-time position to the extent of 67 % full-time equivalent as a
The position is available as of now until July 31st, 2023 in the third-party funded project “Novel lignin-based electrolytes for use in redox flow batteries”. The salary of the position is determined by payment group E 13 according to the collective labor agreement of the State of Hesse (TV-H).
Performance of quantum chemical calculations to determine structure-property relationships and degradation mechanisms of redox-active molecules for redox flow batteries. Besides screening of single redox-active molecules, degradation mechanisms on surfaces are investigated. Density functional theory with current corrections, wave function based and semi-empirical methods as well as machine learning are applied. The results are to be documented, evaluated and subsequently published. There will be a close cooperation with experimental working groups of the joint project.
Further information can be obtained from Prof. Dr. Doreen Mollenhauer (Tel.: 0641/99 34560).
- You have successfully completed a scientific education at a University (diploma or master’s degree) in chemistry, physics or material science with very good results in theoretical chemistry / physics
- Ideally, you have experience in the field of surface modelling and data analysis as well as in working with Linux systems and high-performance computers
- The project involves intensive scientific exchange with scientists from experimental work groups. This requires a very good command of the English language, the willingness to participate in international cooperation’s, excellent communication skills and an interest in interdisciplinary issues
Justus Liebig University Giessen (JLU) aims to employ more women in academic research. We therefore particularly encourage female candidates to apply. JLU is regarded as a family-friendly university. Applicants with children are very welcome.
