THREE POST-DOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE
Kim has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant to work on "Computational Molecular Materials Discovery", which provides €1.5 million over the next 5 years. There are 3 PDRA positions available within the group, with a closing date for applications of 11th January 2018, see links below for more information:
Research Associate in Artificial Intelligence for Molecular Materials Discovery: The successful candidate will work on the use of artificial intelligence techniques including cheminformatics, genetic algorithms and machine learning for the discovery of new functional materials built from organic molecular materials.
Research Associate in Computational Materials Discovery for Organic Electronics: The successful candidate will work on the application of artificial intelligence techniques for the discovery of new functional optoelectronic materials built from organic building blocks. The materials you will study will include small organic molecules and polymers. The applications of the materials will include for photocatalysis, photovoltaics and sensing.
Research Associate in Computational Porous Materials Discovery: The successful candidate will work on the application of artificial intelligence techniques for the discovery of new functional porous materials built from organic building blocks. The porous materials you will study will include porous molecular materials, covalent organic frameworks and porous organic polymers. The applications of the porous materials will include for molecular separations, including in membranes, selective binding and for sensing.
PHD STUDENTSHIPS AVAILABLE FOR 2018
We have PhD positions available to work on either the use of artificial intelligence to predict which organic materials can be successfully made in the laboratory or to work on the structure and property prediction of disordered materials, including polymer membranes and amorphous metal-organic-frameworks. Both positions will involve close collaboration with experimental partners.
Interested candidates are encouraged to make informal contact by e-mail. The position is available to both UK and EU graduates with a 2:1 or higher degree in Chemistry or a related subject. Previous experience with computational chemistry or physics methods is not a requirement, but would be an advantage. See further details of the project at:
