Stellenangebot vom 18. Januar 2021


Development and implementation of quantum-chemical approaches for strongly electron-correlated systems with main focus on transcorrelated and tailored coupled cluster methods in a combination with stochastic FCI. The methodologies will address the basis-set and static-correlation issues of electron-correlation methods aiming for highly accurate and systematically improvable methods for calculating ground- and excited-state energies and properties of molecular systems.

The projects will be rounded off by investigations of spin-state splittings and stabilization mechanisms of challenging organometallic compounds. The research will take place within a DFG-funded project


Successful candidates will hold a diploma or master degree in Chemistry, Physics or Comutational Science
