Doctoral candidates (PhD students) in Theoretical chemical physics

The University of Luxembourg (UL) is seeking to recruit two Doctoral Candidates (PhD students) (m/f) within the chair for Theoretical Chemical Physics, led by Prof. Alexandre Tkatchenko in the Physics and Materials Science (PhyMS) Research Unit (https://wwwen.uni.lu/research/fstc/physics_and_materials_science_research_unit/research_areas/theoretical_chemical_physics).

The successful candidates will join a strong and highly-motivated research team with an excellent funding track-record in competitive national, international and European grants, including the recently funded European Research Council Consolidator Grant “Beyond Static Molecules: Modeling Quantum Fluctuations in Complex Molecular Environments”.

Your Role

The scientific topics of research range from machine learning approaches for describing molecular potential-energy surfaces, development of improved quantum methods for the description of non- covalent interactions, path-integral approaches to nuclear quantum effects (including the molecular Aharonov-Bohm effect), and synergies between these methods to interpret puzzling experimental observations and predict new phenomena in complex molecular systems.


2 PhD candidates in Theoretical Chemical Physics

  •  R-AGR-3391-10-C/R-AGR-3152-10-C
  •  Initial 14 months fixed-term contract, renewable for up to 48 months (depending on thesis progress evaluation), full-time (40h/week)
  •  Student and employee status (36 months studies programme)
Your Profile
  • Master's degree in Physics, Chemistry, or Materials Science
  • Strong background in at least one of the topics described above
  • Good English language skills
  • Willingness to work in an inter-cultural and international environment
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team
  • Curiosity and self-motivation
We offer
  • A dynamic and well-equipped research environment
  • Intensive training in scientific and transferable skills, participation in schools, conferences and workshops
  • Employment contract at UL, extensible to up to four years
  • Enrollment as a PhD student in the Doctoral School of Physics and Materials Science at UL
  • Personal work space at UL
