The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is one of the leading research universities. The university draws its strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific and engineering disciplines on a single, coherent campus. This highly dynamic setting enables students and researchers to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties.

FP-RESOMUS (Fellowship Program - REsolving SOlvation with Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology) is a joint effort of the Swiss research network NCCR MUST and the German Cluster of Excellence RESOLV. Around 50 research groups combine their expertise to increase the fundamental understanding of the interactions and dynamics of molecules in solutions and at interfaces at the molecular, atomic, and electronic level. In total up to 50 experienced researchers will be employed in the participating institutions in Switzerland and Germany. The program is co-funded as a Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) COFUND. RESOLV is looking for full-time postdoctoral researchers (m/f/d) for two years (39.83 h/week, TV-L E13).

If the position is funded by third-party funds the employee has no teaching obligation.
