Position: Research Fellow Software Platform for Multiscale Modelling of Reactive Materials and Processes
Institution: University College London
Department: Chemical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The remit of this role is within the €4M European Commission project “Software Platform for Multiscale Modelling of Reactive Materials and Processes (ReaxPro)”. The project aims at upscaling academic codes for reactive process modelling into user friendly, interoperable software components, which will be integrated with commercial software into an industry-ready solution for catalytic material and process design. The ReaxPro Software Platform will be validated and made available via the European Materials Modelling Marketplace
Requirements: The successful candidate must have (or be in the process of submitting) a PhD in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, or a closely related discipline. Candidates must have experience in statistical mechanics (kinetic Monte Carlo approaches) and software development.
