One postdoc position (TV-L E13, initially 2 years with possible extension) is on method development for computational spectroscopy based on ab initio molecular dynamics, TDDFPT, and beyond, contributing to established open-source codes.
There are two PhD student positions (67% TV-L E13, 3 years): One PhD position will focus on experimental optical spectroscopy of photoelectrodes and battery electrodes, the second will model the electrochemical interfaces by means of density functional theory and computational spectroscopy. Both students will have the opportunity to also explore the complementary methods, i.e. the student with the experimental focus will also have the opportunity to dive into DFT and vice versa. The students will also be part of the Graduate School Electrochemical Energy Storage (EES) of the Cluster of Excellence Post Lithium Storage.
The SPECSY project will help to further understand and develop high-efficiency, sustainable energy conversion in the form of post-Li batteries and solar hydrogen.

M.Sc. and B.Sc. projects. We are always looking for motivated students to start an - computational or experimental - M.Sc. or B.Sc. project in the field of (photo)electrochemical energy conversion. Just contact Matthias May.
