Ph.D. positions

Simulations and theoretical work in the area of soft matter systems

The Institute for Computational Physics works in the fields of research of simulations and theory of soft matter and biophysical systems, e.g. subjects like nucleation, ionic systems, ferrofluids, hydrogels, as well as colloids, polymers or biomolecules.

At present we have no open positions. However, we can support applications of exceptionally good candidates for funding in other projects. These positions would be in the groups of Maria Fyta, Jens Smiatek, and Christian Holm.

Common to all applicants should be a strong background in statistical physics and MD or MC simulation strategies, and knowledge of basic soft matter background (polymers, colloids) or knowledge in atomistic modelling (biomolecules, proteins). The simulations will be performed using the software package ESPResSo, GROMACS, or self-written codes. We are also active in the field of algorithm and code development, in particular for electrostatic and hydrodynamic interactions.

There will be ample opportunity to interact with other researchers at Stuttgart, the Max Planck Institute for metals research, the Max-Planck-Institut für Polymerforschung (MPI-P) in Mainz, and the University of Stuttgart.

All positions are initially for one year, renewable upon mutual agreement. Candidates should have the relevant background in a quantitative discipline (see above) and a keen interest in several of the lab's research areas. Applicants should submit:

  • resume (including date of birth, grades, awards, publications),
  • statement of research interests (up to 2 pages),
  • names and email addresses of 2-3 references
  • links to their thesis and/or publications

Positions will remain open until filled. Please send applications via email to application _at_ icp.uni-stuttgart.de, or if you are located in Stuttgart, simply drop by our institute.

Doktorandenstelle: Physik poröser Medien

Am Institut für Computerphysik ist eine Doktorandenstelle (TVL E13 2/3) im Fach "Theoretische Physik" in der Arbeitsgruppe Physik poröser Medien zu besetzen.

Das Institut für Computerphysik der Universität Stuttgart sucht Diplom/M.Sc.-Studenten, die ihre Doktorarbeit über ein Thema auf dem Gebiet der rechnergestützten statistischen Physik schreiben möchten. Die geplante Dissertation befasst sich mit der Simulation mehrskaliger poröser Medien. Das Projekt wird im Rahmen des Sonderforschungsbereichs 716 durchgeführt. Interessierte Studenten sollten einen überdurchschnittlichen Diplom-, Magister (M.Sc.) oder äquivalenten Abschluss in Physik oder Mathematik vorweisen können. Programmierkenntnisse sind erforderlich. Fähigkeit und Bereitschaft zur Zusammenarbeit mit anderen Doktoranden und Projekten auf demselben Arbeitsgebiet sowie überdurchschnittliche Einsatzbereitschaft werden erwartet. Interessenten senden bitte Ihre Bewerbungsunterlagen (Lebenslauf, Anschreiben, Zeugnisse etc) an.

Studentische Hilfskräfte

We also have a number of open positions for student helpers.

Typesetting a course script/preparing problem sets

There are two openings for HiWi jobs related to the Simulation Methods in Physics course.

The first opening concerns a HiWi position for typesetting the course script in LaTeX and in English. There is already a hand-written version of the script.

The task of the second HiWi job is the preparation and testing of new exercises for the course. For this computational skills are needed.
