Curriculum Vitae (CV)

Sereina Riniker is currently Associate Professor of Computational Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences. In June 2014, she came as Assistant Professor (with Tenure Track) to ETH Zurich, and was promoted in April 2020 to Associate Professor.

She was born in Switzerland in 1985. In 2008, she completed her Master’s degree in chemistry at ETH Zurich. After an internship in the research department of Givaudan AG and a research stay at the University of California Berkeley, she returned in 2009 to ETH Zurich to obtain a PhD in molecular dynamics simulations. From 2012 to 2014, she held a postdoctoral position in cheminformatics at the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research in Basel and Cambridge, Massachusetts.
