PhD at QuantumWise (DK) and Goethe University (D)

One industrial Phd opening at QuantumWise A/S in collaboration with Goethe University

The PhD-project will be part of the EU project ARGENT on the usage of nanoparticles in radiation treatment of Cancer. The focus of the project is to use atomic-scale modelling to understand the interaction between inorganic nanoparticles and organic molecules in the presence of radiation. The first part of the project will be to develop new methods for the Atomistic Toolkit (ATK) for building nanoparticles and calculating properties which can be compared directly with experimental data for characterizing nanoparticles. The second part of the project will be to study the interaction between the nanoparticles and biological environment (water, DNA, proteins, lipids, etc) under radiation with the use of MBN Explorer, For this purpose the student will contribute to implementing excited state dynamics in ATK and use it to study bond breaking mechanisms. In order to study large systems, QM/MM methodologies will be exploited.

The PhD-project will be 36 months, where the student for the first 18 months will be located at QuantumWise headquarter in Copenhagen and the remaining 18 months the student will be located at the Physics Department of Goethe University in Frankfurt a.M.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
