Position: Research Associate in Computational Materials Chemistry
Institution: University College London
Department: Chemistry
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: We are seeking a talented computational scientist to work with Dr Scott Woodley, in the Department of Chemistry at University College London on the development and applications of software that exploits a database dedicated to aiding surface and interface simulations at the Quantum Mechanical and Molecular Mechanical levels of theory. The project will require fundamental methodological developments, their implementation in code and applications to modelling surfaces of inorganic materials
Requirements: The successful candidate will have a PhD degree or equivalent - or will have submitted their thesis prior to taking up the position - in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or a related discipline, with a strong research record in theoretical, computational or mathematical physics, chemistry, materials science or applied mathematics, and an expertise of modelling either solid-state or molecular systems. Good experience in scientific coding will be essential for the role as will be a proven track record in mathematical modelling and theory development
