Open Positions

The Quantum Biology and Computational Physics Group (Department of Physics) at the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg has an opening for a new position: 

PhD position (TV-L E13 / 65%) (Read more here:
The overall goal of this research project is to advance computational modeling techniques such as the molecular dynamics (MD) or free energy perturbation approaches to permit computational studies of biological macromolecules and molecular assemblies that are central to the molecular basis of many sensory processes (including magnetoreception , vision and hearing). The visualization of the scientific results is a major part of the project.

Requirement for employment is that the applicant should have a qualifying university degree (diploma or master) in Physics, Chemistry or related fields and a strong interest in biophysics and basic research in a collaborative research environment. We require excellent mastering of English reading and writing. The candidate must have a profund background in programming such as Python or C++ and GPU-programming as well as high performance computing expertise. Advanced expertise in visualization, classical molecular dynamics simulations and a solid understanding in electronic structure calculations is considered advantageous.

Please send your application (including CV, letter of motivation, list of publications, university and high school certificates, names and phone numbers of at least two personal references) preferred in a single pdf file to

All applications received before the 15th of August 2021 will be considered.
