Postdoctoral Research Associate in Theoretical Chemistry Grade 7
£35,327 – £40,928 pa
You will join the group of Professor Alessandro Troisi based in the Materials Innovation Factory (https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/materials-innovation-factory/) to work on a project supported by a recent ERC Advanced Grant.
The appointment will be initially for 24 months with the possibility of extension. The overall goal of our research is to understand the physics of organic semiconducting materials applied to electronics and bioelectronics and to guide the discovery of new materials. The methodology will include theoretical models at many scales including electron dynamics, soft-matter physics, materials-biomolecules interaction, device physics and high-throughput virtual screening. The project exploits the collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of theoreticians and the interactions with experimentalists. Multiple research directions are available within the project, with the opportunity of adapting them to the skills of the post-holder.
You should have expertise in at least one of the following areas (i) Non-adiabatic chemical dynamics, (ii) Physics of charge transport in the solid state, (iii) QM/MM methods, (iv) High-throughput virtual screening (v) Biophysics. You can write computer codes to solve some of the daily research problems and have experience with high performance computing.
You should have a PhD in Chemistry, Physics or Materials Science with a proven research track record of publications and a solid background enabling the study of completely new problems.
Interviews of shortlisted candidates are expected to take place 8-9 September 2022.
