Position: Research Fellow in Computational Study of Energy Storage Materials
Institution: University College London
Department: Chemistry
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The postholder will focus in particular on the application of both forcefield and quantum chemical methods to study energy materials particularly for Mg and other multivalent batteries. They will contribute to the design and implementation of calculations to study the electronic properties of advanced functional materials, and perform, record, analyse and write up the results of these calculations
Requirements: The successful candidate will have a PhD degree (or near to being awarded a PhD) in Chemistry, Physics or Materials Science in a relevant subject area, in-depth knowledge of both forcefield and electronic structure calculations, electronic localisation and ionic transport in complex solids, and working knowledge on the simulation of defects and doping in functional materials. A track record of effective interaction with experimental scientists, demonstrated through joint publications, is a must. The appointee will have a strong publication track record, a demonstrated commitment to excellence and exceptional skills in computational materials science. They will be expected to work in a highly multidisciplinary collaborative team, and have effective communication skills

The post is funded through an EPSRC Energy Hub, to work in a multidisciplinary team and support experimental synthesis and characterisation of materials for energy storage and conversion. The postholder will focus in particular on the application of both forcefield and quantum chemical methods to study energy materials particularly for Mg and other multivalent batteries. They will contribute to the design and implementation of calculations to study the electronic properties of advanced functional materials, and perform, record, analyse and write up the results of these calculations. Effective and regular interaction is required with experimental colleagues at UCL that work on the synthesis of energy storage materials. The breadth and scope of the overall Hub activity guarantees exposure to other topical application areas, such as oxide ion conductors activated through doping. The position is available for a period of 12 months in the first instance. Key Requirements The successful candidate will have a PhD degree (or near to being awarded a PhD) in Chemistry, Physics or Materials Science in a relevant subject area, in-depth knowledge of both forcefield and electronic structure calculations, electronic localisation and ionic transport in complex solids, and working knowledge on the simulation of defects and doping in functional materials. A track record of effective interaction with experimental scientists, demonstrated through joint publications, is a must. The appointee will have a strong publication track record, a demonstrated commitment to excellence and exceptional skills in computational materials science. They will be expected to work in a highly multidisciplinary collaborative team, and have effective communication skills. Please note, appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at Research Assistant Grade 6B (salary ?30,922 - ?32,607 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
