PhD position in theoretical chemistry at the University of Melbourne, Australia

Two fully funded Ph.D. positions in theoretical chemistry are available in a joint project of Lars Goerigk (University of Melbourne, Australia) and Thomas Jagau (KU Leuven, Belgium).

The positions are funded for 4 years each. The envisioned start date is 01.10.2022 but can be postponed by a few months. Applicants should hold an M.Sc. degree in theoretical chemistry or theoretical physics or an equivalent degree. A special feature of the positions is that both researchers will spend one year at the respective partner institution (KU Leuven and U Melbourne) as part of their Ph.D. Further information on the planned research and instructions how to apply can be found here:
