PhD position in Multiscale Quantum-Classical Simulations of Excitation Dynamics in Biological and Bio-Inspired Systems

Applications are invited for a PhD position in  quantum-classical simulations of excitation dynamics in biological and bio-inspired systems within the DFG-funded Research Training Group (RTG) "Quantum Mechanical Materials Modelling (QM3)" located in Bremen, Germany ( . The position is available in the research group of Prof. Ulrich Kleinekathoefer at the Department of  Physics and Earth Sciences, Jacobs University Bremen (

The PhD project will focus on a combination of molecular dynamics simulations, electronic structure calculations and quantum dynamics to model the initial steps in light harvesting.  The systems will include complexes with pigments in biological environments but also pigments at surfaces. Aim is to mimic some of the important properties of biological systems in man-made systems at surfaces.

The successful candidate should have a Master of Science with a background in physics or chemistry and a strong academic record. Applicants must be highly motivated for doctoral studies, possess the ability to work independently as well as good levels of cooperative and communicative abilities. A good command of English is essential, both as the local working language and because of our international collaborations.

The position is available immediately and applications will be considered until the position is filled. Applicants should submit a CV, a brief statement of research interests, and the names of two referees by e-mail to Prof. Ulrich Kleinekathoefer at

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
