Two postdoctoral opportunities available in computational chemistry at the University of Nottingham

par Nord & Ile de France - 25 janvier

We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated and enthusiastic Research Associate/Fellow in Computational Chemistry at the University of Nottingham.

The successful candidate will work as part of a university-funded project on the development and application of computational modelling approaches for the design of chemical catalysts and/or separation media. This research is supported within the University of Nottingham’s recently announced Green Chemicals Beacon, which spans the multi-disciplinary space of metabolic engineering, process development and green chemistry and seeks to generate efficiencies that culminate in real economic and environmental benefits towards a sustainable future. The role holder will work closely with several colleagues in Computational Chemistry on a range of existing and new collaborations aligned closely with the goals of the Green Chemicals Beacon. Systems of interest include : metal nanocatalysts ; enantioselective catalysts ; reactivity of polyoxometalates ; photochemical catalysis and ionic liquids.

Candidates should have (or be near completion of) a PhD in computational chemistry or a related discipline and have a proven research record in computational modelling of chemical problems. Excellence in one or more of the following areas is essential : molecular simulation, DFT, electronic excited states, materials modelling, 3D structure-property relationships. The successful candidate can look forward to working in a well-resourced environment with state-of-the-art facilities within the Computational Chemistry Group, and to developing the necessary transferable skills to be an independent researcher.

This full-time post is fixed-term for a period of three years and is available from 1 May 2019.

The School values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity. The School of Chemistry holds a Silver Athena SWAN Award in recognition of our commitment to advancing women’s careers in science.

Research Associate/Fellow (fixed term)

Chemistry Location : University Park Salary : £27,025 to £39,609 per annum, depending on skills and experience (minimum £30395 with relevant PhD). Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance Closing Date : Tuesday 19 February 2019 Reference : SCI489618 We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated and enthusiastic Research Associate/Fellow in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry at the University of Nottingham.

The successful candidate will work as part of the European Research Council (ERC) funded project topDFT(https://cordis.europa.eu/project/rc...). The project is directed by Dr. Andy Teale (http://teale.chem.nottingham.ac.uk) and brings together a team of researchers to develop a novel new approach to the exchange—correlation problem in density functional theory. Candidates should have a strong background in the development of density-functional or ab initioquantum chemical methods. The appointed candidate will have the opportunity to help plan and conduct a programme of research supported by state of the art high performance computing facilities.

Candidates should have (or be about to complete) a PhD in computational/theoretical chemistry, theoretical physics, or a related discipline and have a proven research record in computational modelling of chemical problems. Excellence in theoretical and computational chemistry is essential. The successful candidate can look forward to working in a well-resourced environment within the Computational Chemistry Group, and to developing the necessary transferable skills to be an independent researcher.

Also essential are good communication skills, the ability to collaborate effectively with senior and junior colleagues and a good publication track record in peer-reviewed journals commensurate with the stage of career. Attention will also be paid to the candidate’s experience in the supervision and coordination of masters and PhD level students.

This full-time post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for a period of three years and is available immediately.
