For the EU-funded research project Bottom-Up generation of atomically precise syntheTIc 2D MATerials for high performance in energy and Electronic applications (ULTIMATE) the Dresden Center for Computational Materials Science (DCMS) offers one position as Research Associate / PhD student to be hosted at the Institute of Materials Science, Chair of Materials Science and Nanotechnology. The fixed-term position is for 3 years.

The position is embedded in a cooperative research project funded by the European Union which aims to synthesize and understand novel atomically precise 2D materials and to find ways to exploit their unique and tuneable properties for electronics and energy applications. The successful candidate will use modern approaches of computational materials science in combination with efficient methods for data analysis to compute and predict properties of synthetic 2D materials in close collaboration with experimental groups in Europe.

Eligibility criteria

Candidates can be of any nationality, but they must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the recruiting beneficiary for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the recruitment date. They must also be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree.
