Postdoc Positions in Ab Initio Simulation:
Theoretical Chemistry, Marx Group, Bochum

Applications are invited for Postdoctoral Research Associate 
positions in the Marx Group at Bochum ( 
which are available immediately or upon mutual agreement
for two years with possible extensions. The researchers will be 
involved in challenging projects using and/or advancing modern 
ab initio simulation techniques including state-of-the-art 
machine learning extensions. Topics cover e.g. aqueous interfaces, 
vibrational spectroscopy or quantum cryochemistry using cutting-edge 
methods such as those based on path integrals and artificial 
neural networks; check the homepage and recent publications.

The Center for Theoretical Chemistry at RUB offers an exciting
interdisciplinary research environment and excellent facilities
including several in-house HPC platforms. The Marx Group is 
among the scientific pillars of the Cluster of Excellence RESOLV
( and is deeply involved in the Center for
Solvation Science ZEMOS (, which hosts a 
powerful Core Facility for Simulation. The Research Associates
will take full advantage of being integrated into RESOLV and ZEMOS. 
Note that we are operational on university campus even in current 
covid-19 pandemic times. 

Information on the simulation techniques used and developed at 
CTC are accessible via 
whereas fundamentals are provided in D. Marx and J. Hutter, 
Ab Initio Molecular Dynamics: Basic Theory and Advanced Methods 
(Cambridge, 2009).

Candidates should have significant experience in molecular dynamics /
electronic structure and a PhD in computational / theoretical 
chemistry / physics. 

The Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum seeks to foster the careers of women, 
especially in areas where they are currently underrepresented, and 
therefore encourages applications of women in particular. 
Qualified disabled candidates are explicitly invited to apply.

Consideration of candidates will begin immediately and continue
until the positions are filled.
Candidates should send a two page resume including a short outline 
of their previous research expertise and achievements as well as 
their own thoughts on aforementioned topics together with the usual 
material as a PDF file to:
