Department of Chemistry
Postdoc position in theoretical/computational chemistry
A Postdoc position is available in the group of Prof. Dr. Sandra Luber in the Department of Chemistry at University of Zurich (Switzerland). The group focuses on forefront computational methods and applications at the interface of chemistry, biology, physics, and materials science.
The projects deal with development and application of novel, accurate approaches for spectroscopy and/or study of functional compounds (e.g. for sustainable hydrogen production).
Various directions for the projects are possible, e.g. (vibrational) spectroscopy with ab initio molecular dynamics, nonadiabatic dynamics or enhanced sampling / wavefunction-based methods for catalysis.
The projects can be carried out in close collaboration with experimental groups.
The candidate must hold an excellent PhD degree in chemistry, physics, or related, and have profound English skills. The successful candidate will be highly creative, ambitious, motivated, and able to work independently. Strong programming skills and experience in method development, in particular for electronic structure theory/ab initio molecular dynamics, are required.
What we offer
We offer an inspiring environment with cutting-edge resources, access to world-leading supercomputers, and high-profile interdisciplinary collaborations.
Place of work
Prof. Dr. Sandra Luber
