Denmark: Postdoc in Ab-Initio Modeling of Organic Interfaces for Opto-Electronics Applications at DTU

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Description:
The Center for Atomic-scale Materials Design has an opening for one two-year post doc position. The successful applicant will use first-principles calculations to explore various aspects of the electronic properties of metal-organic and organic-organic interfaces. Particular focus will be on the problem of charge-separation at donor-acceptor interfaces, the alignment of energy levels at organic and metal-molecule interfaces, and charge transport in molecular structures. These types of processes are the key to the performance of organic solar cells, light emitting diodes, as well as for molecular electronics devices. Applicants should have a background in theoretical physics or quantum chemistry. Basic knowledge of Density Functional Theory (DFT) and many-body perturbation theory as well as some programming experience is preferred.The project will be carried out at the Center for Atomic-scale Materials Design (CAMD) located at the Department of Physics, Technical University of Denmark north of Copenhagen. We offer a dynamic and international working environment with research activities within several areas of theoretical and computational solid state physics including (photo-)catalysis, electro chemistry, and molecular electronics. We have extensive experience with the development and application of electronic structure theory, and our real space code GPAW is under continuous development. Our own Linux supercomputer cluster, Niflheim, containing 5000+ cores provides optimal conditions for large-scale computer simulations.

Funding is provided by the Sapere Aude program under The Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation.

Qualifications:

Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent. Applicants should have a background in theoretical physics or quantum chemistry. Basic knowledge of Density Functional Theory (DFT) and many-body perturbation theory as well as some programming experience is preferred.

We offer:

We offer an interesting and challenging job in an international environment focusing on education, research, public-sector consultancy and innovation, which contribute to enhancing the economy and improving social welfare. We strive for academic excellence, collegial respect and freedom tempered by responsibility. The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is a leading technical university in northern and benchmarks with the best universities in the world.

Salary and terms of employment:

The period of employment is 2 years. The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed with the relevant union.
