The Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, Center for Energy Resources Engineering (CERE) at Technical University of Denmark (DTU) invites applicants for a PhD position on Water structure and Properties.

  • This project will have much research freedom, while it is expected to have a significant synergy with several sub-projects of the ERC Advanced Grant project “New Paradigm in Electrolyte Thermodynamics”.
  • The project may cover the following aspects: (1) Extensive literature review on simulations of water structure and its properties. (2) Hydrogen-bonding of water, including a methodology to define the formation and interactions of a hydrogen bond in water simulations. (3) Molecular simulations of water structure and properties under different conditions.


  • Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.
  • Experience in molecular simulations, statistical mechanics and programming is essential.


Submit application online and applications must be submitted as one PDF file containing the following materials:

  • A letter motivating the application (cover letter)
  • CV
  • Grade transcripts and BSc/MSc diploma
  • Excel sheet with translation of grades to the Danish grading system (see guidelines and Excel spreadsheet here)
  • Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master’s degree but cannot begin before having received it.
