The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / Post­doc

(Sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)

The pro­ject posi­tion is offe­red, sub­ject to resour­ces being avail­able. The posi­tion is star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble and is limi­ted for 36 mon­ths. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz-WissZeitVG).

Work­ing field:

Rese­arch for a pro­ject ent­it­led „Design and Con­trol of Pat­ter­ned Large-Area Mole­cule–Sur­face Inter­faces for Mul­ti­ple-State Data Sto­rage Tech­no­lo­gies“, which is sup­por­ted by the Leib­niz Col­la­bo­ra­tive Excel­lence pro­gram and invol­ves two expe­ri­men­tal groups at the Insti­tute of Sur­face Modi­fi­ca­tion (IOM) Leip­zig and a theory group at TU Dres­den.
The suc­cess­ful can­di­date shall, in close col­la­bo­ra­tion with the expe­ri­men­tal part­ners, design pre­dic­tive ato­mistic models for mul­ti­ple-state data sto­rage mate­ri­als. The envi­sa­ged hybrid struc­tures include hydro­gen bonded metallo­por­phy­rin net­works on gold sur­faces and depo­si­ted poly­o­xo­me­tala­tes. Mate­ri­als manu­fac­tu­red by the expe­ri­men­tal part­ners shall be jointly cha­rac­te­ri­zed and ana­ly­zed, in order to elu­ci­date struc­ture, elec­tro­nic struc­ture and func­tion of the mate­ri­als. Cal­cu­la­ti­ons shall be car­ried out using a port­fo­lio of ato­mistic methods ran­ging from force fields and den­sity-func­tio­nal theory.


uni­ver­sity degree and PhD degree in che­mi­stry, phy­sics or mate­rial sci­ence. We expect pro­found know­ledge in com­pu­ta­tio­nal che­mi­stry, inclu­ding ato­mistic simu­la­ti­ons of mate­ri­als, elec­tro­nic struc­ture cal­cu­la­ti­ons, pre­dic­tive spec­tro­scopic simu­la­ti­ons, and high per­for­mance com­pu­ting. We expect a high level of com­pe­tence, in par­ti­cu­lar in sci­en­ti­fic com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the expe­ri­men­tal part­ners.

What we of­fer:

We offer a sta­ble 3-year’s posi­tion with a com­pe­ti­tive salary in one of Ger­many’s most attrac­tive rese­arch envi­ron­ments. TU Dres­den is one of the 13 Ger­man Uni­ver­si­ties of Excel­lence and pro­vi­des out­stan­ding working, rese­arch and net­wor­king pos­si­bi­li­ties. Fur­ther qua­li­fi­ca­tion, for example aiming at the venia legendi, is pos­si­ble.
The Chair of Theo­re­ti­cal Che­mi­stry is hea­ded by Prof. Tho­mas Heine. The inter­na­tio­nal group of ~25 rese­ar­chers from 9 nati­ons works inter­di­sci­pli­nary in the fields of com­pu­ta­tio­nal mate­ri­als sci­ence, theo­re­ti­cal and com­pu­ta­tio­nal che­mi­stry, and phy­sics of low-dimen­sio­nal mate­ri­als. It main­tains strong ties with the local expe­ri­men­tal groups of TU Dres­den and the insti­tu­tes of the DRES­DEN-con­cept envi­ron­ment. The group hosts its own com­pu­ter clus­ter and has full access to the high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting infra­st­ruc­ture at ZIH Dres­den, one of Ger­many’s lea­ding HPC cen­tres. Dres­den, the capi­tal of the State of Sax­ony, is a city with beau­ti­ful his­to­ri­cal city centre. It offers a high stan­dard of living with high ratings in housing, safety and health­care.
App­li­ca­ti­ons from women are par­ti­cu­larly wel­come. The same app­lies to people with disa­bi­li­ties.
