PhD position theoretical studies of heating and cooling in molecular transport junctions
Nano-structured junctions with molecules bound between electrodes present interesting systems for molecular electronic and thermoelectric devices. These projects will investigate inelastic electron transport and heat transport in conducting junctions with a particular focus on strategies for controlling these processes chemically.
It is necessary to have experience in computational chemistry or physics, particularly experience in electron transfer/transport. Good communication skills (written and oral) in English are required.
A MSc or equivalent degree
PhD employment will be for a period of 3 years.
Terms of employment
The position will be filled according to the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The post is covered by the Protocol on Job Structure.
