One postdoc position in photo-electrochemical modeling is available at ICIQ – Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (Tarragona, Spain)
The Postdoc researcher will work on a project in collaboration with international research groups in academia.
Candidate profile: We are looking for a highly motivated, experienced researcher with a finished PhD in Physics (Condensed Matter), Materials Science, or Chemistry (Physical or Theoretical).
The candidate needs to have a solid background in Physics/Theoretical chemistry, an interest in atomic-scale modelling of oxides and to have performed studies and simulations applying density functional theory, as well as electronic structure calculations by using periodic ab initio codes. Experience in DFT, semiconductor modeling, photochemical properties, computational chemistry, using high-performance supercomputing facilities and proficiency with Python and Linux are required.
Demonstrated experience in reporting and publishing research results in top scientific journals as well as strong oral and written communication skills in English* are definitely a must.
We offer: A challenging job in an international and multidisciplinary environment. The position is for one year (renewable upon mutual agreement). Approximate gross salary: 27,000 – 30,000 euro / year (depending on background and qualifications). Negotiable starting date.
How to apply: Applications should be sent to: email@example.com (NL-2021 as reference in the subject, please do not attach papers, theses etc). Applications need to include: (i) a motivation letter, (ii) CV (with a list of publications, presentations in conferences, courses taken and language qualifications), (iii) PhD diploma, and (iv) the names and contact details of two people willing to write a letter of recommendation for the candidate. The evaluation of candidates will start ASAP. Deadline for applications: March 7th 2021.
You should only apply if:
-You are a talented, highly motivated researcher.
-You are a creative thinker and a problem solver.
-You enjoy working both individually and as part of a team.
Women scientists are encouraged to apply. Candidates who meet the requirements and can start ASAP will stand a very good chance of getting the position.
About us: Prof. Nuria Lopez’ group, ICIQ’s “Theoretical Heterogeneous Catalysis Group”, focuses on the use of atomistic simulations to understand the mechanisms that govern chemical processes in heterogeneous catalysis. The group has participated in more than 10 European projects. The group collaborates both with the most important experimental groups in the area in Europe and with industry, and uses massive computational resources, as those provided by the RES-BSC as well as the group’s own at ICIQ.
