We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher with a strong background of theoretical physics or chemistry and strong computational skills in the development of accelerated simulation methods and their application to nanoscale structure formation (organic electronic and soft matter). Candidates should have expertise in computational, theoretical physics, or related areas and specifically molecular dynamics. We expect the ability and desire to work in a heterogeneous interdisciplinary environment, strong research skills, and a history of innovation and accomplishment documented by a strong academic record. Prior involvement in the development of complex computational methods on HPC architectures and appropriate skills in software engineering using state-of-the-art object-oriented languages would be very beneficial. Experience in high-performance computing is strongly desired.

Research at the materials simulation group (www.int.kit.edu/nanosim, staff ~ 20) at the Institute of Nanotechnology (www.int.kit.edu) has recently focused on the development of predictive multiscale materials design with applications of organic light emitting diodes, organic photovoltaics, molecular electronics, designer polymers, metal organic frameworks and novel 2D materials, such as graphene. The institute (staff ~300) is a central pillar of the research program Science and Technology of Nanosystems of the Helmholtz Society and offers a stimulating multidisciplinary work environment addressing many topical problems in nanoscience and technology, both experimentally and theoretically. Since the merger of the former Research Center Karlsruhe and Karlsruhe University, it is part of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, one of the largest research sites in Europe.

Scientific Inquiries should be directed via email to wolfgang.wenzel∂kit.edu with a full CV including their employment record and academic achievements. Copies of university transcripts or certificates are not required at this point. Candidates whose native language is not English should document their proficiency in written and spoken English.
