Subject: 19.10.26 Postdoc and PhD position in theoretical chemistry, Zurich, Switzerland
A postdoc and PhD position are available in the group of Prof. Sandra Luber in the Department of Chemistry at University of Zurich (Switzerland).

About the projects:

Our group focuses on forefront computational methods and applications at the interface of chemistry, biology, physics, and materials science 
(www.chem.uzh.ch/en/research/groups/luber.html).

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. For further information, please contact Prof. Sandra Luber.


Requirements for the PhD position:
The candidate must hold an excellent Master degree in chemistry, physics, or related, and have profound English skills. 
The successful candidate will be highly creative, ambitious, and motivated. 
Programming skills are required. Very good knowledge about electronic structure theory, molecular dynamics, and (transition metal-based) catalysis is an advantage. 

Requirements for the postdoc position: 
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.

We offer an inspiring environment with cutting-edge resources, access to world-leading supercomputers, and high-profile interdisciplinary collaborations.


Application:

Interested applicants are encouraged to send their application documents (cover letter, CV, publication list, diplomas, description of research experience and motivation, 
names of at least two academic references) as one pdf document per e-mail to Prof. Sandra Luber (email: sandra.luber~~chem.uzh.ch). 
Start date: by agreement.
