Jobs with Johannes Kästner

Want to join the Computational Chemistry Group?

We search for highly motivated people with a background in chemistry, physics, materials science, biochemistry, astrochemistry,  computer science (machine learning), or related fields and an interest in chemistry and computing. Projects oriented at applications as well as projects focused on method development are available.

We offer the successful candidates an intellectually challenging position in the inspiring atmosphere of an interdisciplinary team in the SimTech cluster of excellence, where we collaborate directly with people working in fields as diverse as mathematics, natural science, computer science, and engineering – theoreticians as well as experimentalists.

Excellent communication skills in English are a prerequisite, knowledge of the German language is not required.

Open positions

  • Post-doc or PhD student positions: Positions in machine learning related to chemistry, in modelling of catalysis or in astrochemistry are available.
  • Bachelor or Master theses (Masterarbeiten, Bachelorarbeiten) are always welcome! Topics available on request or in our summary of topics.
  • Project students: Students from Stuttgart who want to do their “Forschungspraktikum”, “Projektarbeit”, or similar in computational chemistry are welcome to have a look on our summary of topics or to contact Johannes Kästner directly.

If you are interested in PhD or postdoc positions, please send your application (CV, list of publications, certificates of relevant university degrees, contact details for references) to the group leader, Johannes Kästner or contact him in an informal manner.
