Subject: 18.12.09 Postdoc position at University of Zurich (Switzerland)
A 1-year postdoc position is available in the Department of Chemistry at University of Zurich (Switzerland).

Our group focuses on forefront computational methods at the interface of chemistry, biology, physics, and materials science (
The research topic of the project deals with development and application of novel approaches in the field of photocatalysis and spectroscopy using first-principles methods. 
This will allow unprecedented new insight into e.g. functional liquids and systems for solar light-driven water splitting. The project may be carried out in collaboration with 
experimental groups, for instance of the university research priority program "Solar Light to Chemical Energy Conversion". 
For further information, please contact Prof. Sandra Luber (email: sandra.luber*

The candidate must hold a strong PhD degree in chemistry, physics, or related, and have very good English skills. The successful candidate will be creative, ambitious, highly motivated,
