Qualification Details

As a formal qualification, you must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent). Your PhD is in chemistry, physics, materials science or a similar field. Previous postdoc experience is preferred.

You have a comprehensive understanding of heterogeneous and/or electro-catalysis. You have extensive experience in density functional theory calculations and preferably with kinetic analysis and machine learning methods. Namely, experience with OER kinetic modelling and ORR calculations will be beneficial. The ideal candidate is a strong communicator in both written and spoken English, is independent and can lead a project from start to finish, and enjoys collaborating closely with others from diverse backgrounds as well as supporting more junior group members.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The successful candidates will be working on theoretical method development and computational catalyst discovery for heterogeneous reactions for H2O, CO2 and N2 reduction. You will be working in close collaboration with other group members from a variety of backgrounds. The position also involves close collaboration with experimentalists.
