Research Associate position in Computational Material Science and Heterogeneous Catalysis at the Universitat of Barcelona

  1. 1. Research Associate position in Computational Material Science and Heterogeneous Catalysis at the Universitat de Barcelona, Spain The “Reactivity of Nanomaterials” group at the Institute of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry (Uni. Barcelona) combines modern computational approaches in a powerful strategy for determining structure and reactivity of advanced materials relevant to energy technologies and heterogeneous catalysis. We are seeking for our team a highly qualified and motivated young scientist to carry out quantum-mechanical computer modelling in a project devoted to the rational design of innovative catalysts for sustainable energy production. The project funded by the European FP7 program involves academic and industrial experimental and theoretical teams from Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. The modelling studies will be performed in close collaboration with the experimental partners. The position offers: • Exciting world-class research in excellent environment at Uni. Barcelona as well as within a large international network • Work contract renewable for up to 3 years The ideal candidate will have: • A (recent) PhD degree in chemistry, physics or a related discipline • High motivation and the ability to collaborate effectively with colleagues • Excellent written and oral communication skills in English • Strong backgrounds in quantum mechanics and computer simulations • Expertise in theoretical studies related to heterogeneous catalysis, surface science or inorganic nanomaterials The position is expected to be filled by the end of the year 2013 or as soon as possible hereafter. Interested candidates are invited to send applications (a motivation letter, CV and contact data of two references) to Prof. Konstantin Neyman, e-mail: konstantin.neyman@ub.edu Departament de Química Física & Inst. de Química Teòrica i Computacional, Universitat de Barcelona, 08028 Barcelona (Spain) http://www.icrea.cat/Web/ScientificForm.aspx?key=292 State: October 4th, 2013
