Post-Doctoral Research Vacancies

Post-Doctoral Research Vacancies

Current research vacancies are listed below:

Research Associate - Research Officer in Materials Discovery, - Ref:1420533

Publication date:

Applications are invited for a Research Associate/Officer to work with Professor Kwang-Leong Choy at the Centre for Materials Discovery, University College London.  The scope of the Research Associate/Officer role is to design and develop new materials and processes. In the first instance, the successful candidate will be involved in developing novel and high performance nanostructured transparent conducting materials and thin film solar cells with high conversion efficiency, reliability and reproducibility characteristics. The role will require co-ordination with academic and industrial partners.

Research Associate in Computational Materials Chemistry - Ref: 1423530

Publication date:

The Research Associate will work with Professor Nora de Leeuw in the Department of Chemistry at University College London. This computational project is part of a larger EPSRC-funded project grant on Bio-inspired nano-catalysts for CO2 conversion, which includes experimental groups in UCL Chemistry and the Harwell Catalysis Centre.
