The Computational Carbon Chemistry (CCC) group at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS gGmbH) is looking for a
to work on the ERC Starting Grant “PATTERNCHEM: Shape and Topology as Descriptors of Chemical and Physical Properties in Functional Organic Materials”.
Your interdisciplinary research project will involve high-level, high-throughput, and multiscale simulations of functional organic materials, including graphene derivatives, covalent organic frameworks, and hyperbranched polymers. You will also be developing and implementing novel representations of material structure and descriptors of the non-covalent interactions between materials and small molecules. The ultimate goal of PATTERNCHEM is to build an all-encompassing, adaptable framework for modelling interactions of multifaceted functional organic materials with their molecular targets, filling the missing links with newly devised structural fingerprints and energetic descriptors.
What qualifies you for this job
Successful candidates should have a PhD degree (or be close to completion) in chemistry, physics, materials science, or a related discipline, and an experience in chemical modelling and numerical simulations. Expertise with running high-throughput and multiscale simulations, setting up computational workflows, coding, data science and machine learning are advantageous.
The environment of this job
You will work in a dynamic research group, led by Dr. Ganna (Anya) Gryn’ova. You will be based at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, where you will find first-class research environment and outstanding computational infrastructure in a beautiful green setting on the banks of the Neckar River.
