There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Do you mean in private industry or in an instructional capacity? I suspect that these answers will vary wildly based on geographic region(s) your interested in, so it'd be nice to have that information. – OldTroll Feb 14 '12 at 21:06

One of the best resources for jobs in computational chemistry (not limited to PhD level positions) is the job section of the Computational Chemistry List.

Another place where I've regularly seen relevant postings is the "Computational Chemists" group on LinkedIn.

If you are based in Europe, or would consider a position in Europe, I strongly recommend the CCP5 mailing-lists for this purpose. I also second the advice about the Computational Chemistry List, these are the two places I post job openings for my own group.

In the UK, all academic positions open are posted to, making it really invaluable for job search.

Finally, some journals have a job listings section as well, such as Nature jobs, Science Careers. The learned society of your field might also have job listing, as e.g. the Royal Society of Chemistry or the ACS’s Chemistry jobs listing.
