Post-Doctoral Research Vacancies
Current research vacancies are listed below:
Research Associate in Computational Materials Chemistry - Ref: 1423530
Publication date: 9 July 2014
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.
Research Associate in Computational Materials Chemistry - Ref: 1423607
Publication date: 1 July 2014
The Research Associate will work with Professor Nora de Leeuw in the Department of Chemistry at University College London. This computational project on ‘Modelling composition-solubility relationships in bio-active phosphate glasses’ will involve the development and application of classical molecular dynamics simulations to elucidate the dissolution processes occurring at the glass surfaces in a realistic environment, including solvent, relevant biomolecules and solvated electrolytes.
Research Associate in Materials Chemistry – Ref:1421434
Publication date: 1 July 2014
A position is available in University College London (UCL) for a postdoctoral research associate to work on an EPSRC consortium project, headed by Professor Nora de Leeuw, on the development and application of novel synthesis techniques for the sustainable production of nano-catalysts and their integration in a solar-driven device for CO2 conversion. The successful applicant will primarily work with Professor Jawwad Darr, UCL Chemistry, and Dr Dan Brett, UCL Chemical Engineering, whilst the wider research programme will involve close collaboration with computational scientists and researchers in UCL, the UK Catalysis Hub in Harwell and the ESRF in Grenoble, with industrial input from Johnson Matthey, Air Fuel Synthesis and PV3 Technologies.
Research Associate in Computational Studies of Catalytic Materials, - Ref: 1422633
Publication date: 24 June 2014
Applications are invited for a Research Associate who will work in the Department of Chemistry, University College London. This is one of two postdoctoral positions relating to the first principles development of ammonia synthesis catalysts as part of an EPSRC funded collaboration between the University of Glasgow and University College London. This exciting project is a highly integrated computational and experimental programme directed towards the development of novel catalysts for a process of major industrial and societal impact. The computational aspect of the programme will be undertaken by the Research Associate who will be based in the group of Professor Richard Catlow at University College London, and the experimental aspect undertaken by the other Research Associate who will be based in the group of Dr Justin Hargreaves at the University of Glasgow. The programme will involve frequent project meetings and exchange of information between the two centres.
Research Associate (x2) in Nanostructured Thin Film Solar Cells – Ref: 1421364
Publication date: 18 June 2014
Applications are invited for two Research Associates to work with Professor Kwang-Leong Choy in the Centre for Materials Discovery at University College London. The successful candidates will be involved in developing cost-effective nanostructured thin film solar cells with high conversion efficiency, reliability and reproducibility characteristics. The relationships between structural, compositional, optical and electrical characterization of thin films and solar cells will be established.
