The group of Prof. Sandra Luber focuses on forefront computational methods at the interface of chemistry, biology, physics, and materials science.
The research topic of the project deals with development and application of novel (dynamic) approaches in the field of photocatalysis and spectroscopy using first-principles methods. This will allow unprecedented new insight into e.g. functional liquids and systems for solar light-driven water splitting. The project may be carried out in collaboration with experimental groups, for instance of the university research priority program “Solar Light to Chemical Energy Conversion”.
The candidate must hold a strong PhD degree in chemistry, physics, or related. The successful candidate will be creative, ambitious, highly motivated and able to work independently. Strong programming skills and experience in method development, in particular for electronic structure theory/ab initio molecular dynamics, are essential.
Profound English skills.
