Open Positions

POSTDOC POSITION AVAILABLE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ON-THE-FLY MULTISCALE
MOLECULAR DYNAMICS METHODS

 

A postdoctoral position is available at the Laboratory of Computational Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology EPF in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The successful candidate will be involved in the development of first-principles based multiscale (QM/MM, QM/QM, QM/QM/MM) simulations and their combination with on-the-fly machine learning models for ground and excited state dynamics. These methods will be applied to problems in biology and materials science.
The ideal candidate has a background in either computational (bio)physics, condensed matter theory, computational material science, computational chemistry and/or machine learning. A good programming experience is a strong prerequisite.

Prospective candidates are invited to contact:
Prof. Ursula Röthlisberger,
Laboratory of Computational Chemistry & Biochemistry
Institute of Chemical Sciences and Engineering

POSTDOC AND PHD POSITIONS AVAILABLE IN SIMULATION OF ULTRAFAST PHENOMENA AND COMPUTATIONAL MATERIALS SCIENCE

Postdoctoral and PhD positions are available at the Laboratory of Computational Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology EPF in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The successful candidates will be involved in the development and the application of

1) Time-dependent density functional (TDDFT) based excited state dynamics of ultrafast phenomena in physical, chemical and biological systems

2) Classical and mixed quantum mechanical/molecular mechanical (QM/MM) simulations of dye-sensitized and perovskite based solar cells

Both projects are part of National Competence Centers (NCCR) and are performed in close collaboration with experimental groups. Ideal candidates have a background in computational physics, condensed matter theory, computational material science or computational chemistry and some programming experience.
