A 4-year PhD position is available in the Department of Chemistry at University of Zurich (Switzerland).

About the project

Our group focuses on forefront computational methods and applications 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 spectroscopy with focus on highly accurate and computationally efficient methods. This will allow unprecedented new insight into e.g. functional liquids and advanced materials for artificial solar light-driven water splitting. The project will be carried out in collaboration with experimental groups, for instance of the university research priority program “Solar Light to Chemical Energy Conversion” ( Methods used will mainly encompass static and dynamic ab initio approaches. For further information, please contact Prof. Sandra Luber (email:
