Basile F. E. Curchod obtained his PhD in theoretical chemistry in 2013 at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland), under the direction of Dr. Ivano Tavernelli and co-direction of Prof. Ursula Röthlisberger. He was then invited for a short stay in the laboratory of Prof. Clémence Corminboeuf (EPFL, Lausanne).
In early 2014, he was awarded an Early.PostDoc grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation to join the group of Prof. Todd J. Martínez at Stanford University (USA).
In December 2015, he initiated a short postdoctoral stay in the Theory Group directed by Prof. Eberhard K. U. Gross, at the Max Planck Institute in Halle (Germany).
He has then been awarded a Marie Curie Research Fellowship to join, in May 2016, the Centre for Computational Chemistry at the University of Bristol (UK), working with Dr. David R. Glowacki.
In November 2017, he became Assistant Professor in Theoretical Chemistry at Durham University (UK), and in September 2018 he was awarded an ERC Starting Grant. He was promoted to Associate Professor in August 2021.
