Subject: 22.04.07 Postdoc Positions in Ab Initio Simulation: Marx Group
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. Our reseach is very collaborative
and often involves joint projects in teams with experimental 
partners or/and other theory groups. Our topics cover e.g. 
aqueous interfaces, vibrational spectroscopy or quantum 
cryochemistry always using cutting-edge methods such as those
based on artificial neural networks or path integrals; 
check our 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. 

Information on the simulation techniques we use and develop 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). Our latest methodological developments 
including those of highly accurate ML-potentials can be found 
in our most recent research and review articles.

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

At Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum, we wish to promote careers of women 
in areas in which they have been underrepresented, and we would 
therefore like to encourage female candidates to send us their 
applications. Applications by suitable candidates with severe 
disabilities and other applicants with equal legal status are 
likewise most welcome.

Consideration of candidates will begin immediately and continue
until the positions are filled.
