Postdoctoral Research Associate: Position 2

Postdoctoral applicants are invited for research in computational electronic structure. Possible research topics include the development and application of methods of electronic structure for the investigation of:

a) Active centers in metalloproteins and their biological function.
b) Magnetic and mesoscopic properties of (bio)molecular nanostructures.

Candidates should have a strong background in computational quantum mechanics, methods of computational electronic structure (e.g., density functional theory, ab-initio, quantum molecular dynamics) and scientific computer programming. This position may be of interest to computational solid state physicists or computational quantum chemists seeking to move towards biological electronic structure. Please send CV and list of preprints and publications to:
