A Research Associate position is available in the Computational Nano-Electrochemistry group at Imperial College London: https://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/c.cucinotta
This position is in the framework of a multidisciplinary project on developing and applying new theoretical methodologies to enable the realistic modelling of electrochemical (EC) systems under operating conditions.
Our team currently works to
(i) develop the theoretical and computational tools to perform non-equilibrium molecular dynamics under applied potential/currents
(i) understand fundamental electro-catalytic phenomena at electrified interfaces of interest for energy and nanotechnology, such as in water splitting, chemical fuel production, and corrosion
(ii) unravel fundamental current and bias induced effects at nanointerfaces, such as electrochemical nanojunctions, electromechanics and redox/resistive switching.
You will work on applying and developing novel theoretical and computational methodology based on first principles to understand fundamental electro-catalytic phenomena at electrified interfaces of interest for energy and nanotechnology.
Duties and responsibilities
You must have a PhD (or equivalent) in physics, chemistry or related discipline.
You must also meet the following criteria:
*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £35,477 - £38,566 per annum.
The post is initially available for 2 years, with the possibility of extension based on mutual agreement.
Candidates need to complete an online application and include a cover letter, a motivation statement (300 words max) briefly describing their main research achievements to date and why would like to apply for this post, a CV with full publication list, the names and contact details of at least two referees.
