Diploma and Ph.D students with interest in computational soft matter are welcome. Just contact me via email.

The Institute for Theoretical Physics at the Georg-August University of Goettingen invites applications for a
Post-doc position (all genders welcome) - TV-L E 13 (100 %, 39,8 hrs) -
in the field of computer simulation of polymer materials and soft matter. The initial appointment will be for one year and an extension is possible.
The project aims at studying the kinetics of self-assembly of copolymer materials, accounting for complex thermodynamics of multicomponent polymer-solvent systems and the underlying single-chain kinetics within the framework of highly coarse-grained particle-based models and comparing the results to experiments and/or continuum models. Candidates are expected to have finished a Bachelor or Master University study and hold a PhD degree in Physics, Chemistry, or Engineering, have proven experience with molecular simulations of coarse-grained polymer models or self-consistent field theory or machine-learning techniques, and have very good communication skills in English; experience in high-performance computing (using GPUs) is required. The University of Goettingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for female scientists. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply as they are underrepresented in this field. Disabled persons with equivalent aptitude for the position will be favored.
Please send your application to Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Institut für Theoretische Physik, Prof. Dr. Marcus Müller, Friedrich-Hund-Platz 1, 37077 Göttingen, preferably via email to mmueller@theorie.physik.uni-goettingen.de. The deadline for application is July 15, 2022. Later applications may be considered as long as the position remains unfilled.
We request that you send us copies of your application documents, as no returns will be made. We will destroy the documents after a holding period of five months. Application documents will be only returned to you if you provide a self-addressed adequately stamped envelope.

The Georg-August Universität Göttingen invites applications for a

PhD Position (f/m/d)
Project 13: Single-Chain and Collective Structure and Dynamics of Polymer Materials
Please apply via https://engage.cyi.ac.cy before 30th of September 2022.
The project “Enabling the next generation of computational physicists and engineers” (ENGAGE) is an interdisciplinary, intersectoral and multi-institutional project offering quality training to doctoral students in the fields of Computational High Energy Physics and Multiscale Systems. It aims to develop students’ competencies in High Performance Computing, in methodologies at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science approaches and Quantum Computing.
Candidates must hold a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in physics, chemistry, applied mathematics, engineering, computational science/informatics from reputable Universities, or a related field with outstanding performance record. Proven computational and numerical skills, knowledge of a modern programming language and/or experience in high-performance computing (using e.g., GPU-acceleration) are desirable. Candidates with experience in molecular simulations, high-performance computing or any related field will be favoured. Please, also note the EU mobility requirements to be eligible for this position.
The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunity employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply in fields in which they are underrepresented. The university has committed itself to being a family-friendly institution and supports their employees in balancing work and family life. The University aims to employ a greater number of severely disabled persons. Applications from severely disabled persons with equivalent qualifications will be given preference.
