The University of Vienna (20 faculties and centres, 184 fields of study, approx. 10.400 members of staff, about 90.000 students) seeks to fill the position from 01.02.2023 of a

University Assistant (post doc)
at the Department of Theoretical Chemistry

Reference number: 13584

General Description (research group)
The González research group’s focus ( is driven by understanding chemical phenomena using contemporary computational and theoretical methods. In particular, we employ ab initio quantum chemistry to understand relationships between structure and function but we also develop chemical dynamics methods to model and predict chemical and photochemical process of complex systems and to control chemical reactions using light. Prof. González's current research focus is put at using highly accurate electronic structure methods, developing molecular reaction dynamical methods and interfacing both fields to achieve basic understanding of chemical processes and structure-function relationships as well as obtain quantitative predictions in molecules, biological systems and materials.

A Postdoc position is available for an early stage researcher at the University of Vienna, Austria, in the field of quantum computing for excited state chemistry and chemical dynamics.

This is a 4 year postdoc position with the option to extend it for a further 2 years after a successful internal interim evaluation.
