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.
