Subject: 19.03.04 Postdoctoral Position, Condensed Phase Simulations, University of Basel, Switzerland
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in theoretical
biophysics/computational chemistry in the group of Markus Meuwly at
the Department of Chemistry, University of Basel, Switzerland. The
appointment is within the National Competence Center of Research
(NCCR) on Molecular and Ultrafast Science and Technology. The initial
appointment is for one year with the possibility to extend.

Potential candidates have a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics,
or related fields. A strong background in computational/theoretical
chemistry/physics (e.g., statistical mechanics, computer simulation,
electronic structure theory) and programming skills are essential. The
main theme of our research is to develop and apply state-of-the-art
computational tools for understanding intermolecular interactions and
the nuclear dynamics in complex systems, in particular biological
macromolecules. The research is carried out in close collaboration
with experimental groups participating in the network and within the
EU-sponsored FP-RESOMUS program.

The projects involve methodological developments building on our
recent efforts to use reproducing kernel based force fields
(J. Chem. Inf. Model., 57, 1923 (2017)), various flavours of
multipolar force fields (e.g. J. Chem. Inf. Model., 56, 1479 (2016),
J. Chem. Phys., 147, 161712 (2017)), and machine-learned force fields
(J. Chem. Phys., 148, 241708 (2018)).

Systems of interest within the network concern spectroscopic probes
for multidimensional spectroscopy of protein dynamics with spatial
resolution, 1d- and 2d-infrared spectroscopy to characterize the
energetics, dynamics and thermodynamics of protein association (see
Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 19, 24 (2017)) or the structural dynamics in
complex liquid mixtures (see J. Phys. Chem. Lett., 8, 4600 (2017)).

Interested candidates should send a letter of intent and a C.V. (by
e-mail to m.meuwly"at", and arrange for at least two letters
of recommendation sent to the same mail address.
