Ph.d. & forskning

A PhD position is available in the group of Thorsten Hansen at the Department of Chemistry,

University of Copenhagen. The positions are available from September 1st 2017 or soon thereafter.

In the group, we are interested in the optical and electronic processes that take place in photosynthesis

and solar cells. We simulate 2D electronic spectra of such processes.

The position is funded by the Lundbeck Foundation and the Department of Chemistry as part of the

project “Charge Transfer and Catalysis in Metalloproteins”.

Research Project: Ultra-Fast Spectroscopy of Charge Transfer
Learn and develop theory of ultra-fast spectroscopy, including coherent, multi-dimensional

spectroscopy using many-body methods and simulate and interpret spectra of charge transfer and

charge separation within photosynthetic proteins and in model compounds.

Part of the work may be done in collaboration with experimentalists at Lund University.

In addition, Ph.D. students are required to participate in teaching and similar tasks as assigned by the


A background in chemistry, nanoscience, or physics is expected. A candidate interested in/experienced

with one or more of the following topics will be given priority:

  • Time-resolved spectroscopy
  • Many-particle physics
  • Electron transfer
  • Quantum chemistry

Fluency in English, spoken and written, is expected. The candidate must be a team player, willing and

able to engage in a cross-disciplinary, collaborative project.

The application must be submitted via the on-line applications system and should include

  • A cover letter motivating the application
