Postdoc position on "Theoretical investigation of catalysis on nanoalloys" in the group of Professor Roy Johnston (Birmingham, UK)

  1. 1. Research Fellow – Theoretical Investigation of Catalysis on Nanoalloys College of Engineering and Physical Sciences University of Birmingham -School of Chemistry Fixed Term Contract – 29 months Salary from £28,132 to £38,907 a year Applications are invited for a post-doctoral researcher to work in the group of Professor Roy Johnston in the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham. The project is part of a multi-centre collaboration, with the Universities of Cambridge, Oxford, King’s College London and University College London, funded by the EPSRC under the 5 year Critical Mass Grant EP/J010804/1 “TOUCAN: Towards an Understanding of Catalysis on Nanoalloys”. Applicants should have (or be about to receive) a PhD in theoretical chemistry or theoretical physics, or in a related area. The project will involve the development of the theory and computational tools required to perform global optimization of mono- and bimetallic clusters (“nanoalloys”) and to study the adsorption and reaction of small molecules on these clusters, with the aim of understanding nanocatalysis and predicting improved catalysts. The post is for a period of 29 months and is available from 1 June 2014. Informal enquiries can be directed to Professor Roy Johnston via e-mail at r.l.johnston@bham.ac.uk. To download the details and submit an electronic application online visit: http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/staff/jobs. Please quote the Job Reference in all enquires.
