Research Fellow in Computational Chemistry (81451-018)

University of Warwick - Department of Chemistry

Fixed term contract for 3 years

Start date: 1 March 2018 or soon thereafter

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research fellow position in the group of Dr. Scott Habershon in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Warwick.

The successful candidate will be offered a 36-month appointment working on a new project entitled “Accelerating catalyst design using reaction-path data mining”, funded by the EPSRC.

The Habershon group at Warwick ( focuses on developing and applying new computer simulation methods to understand dynamic phenomena in complex condensed-phase systems. This newly-funded project is based on recent development of novel computational methods for automated reaction-path sampling. In this project, this new approach will be used to generate and model complex kinetic networks emerging from nanoparticle-catalysed reactivity of small molecules with the goal of correlating nanoparticle composition and morphology with catalytic propensity. This project will involve collaboration with scientists from Johnson Matthey.

Interviews are expected to take place the week of the 19 February 2018.

If you have not yet been awarded your PhD but are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant on level 5 of the University grade structure (£28,936). Upon successful award of your PhD and evidence of this fact, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of the level 6 of the University grade structure (£29,799).
