A postdoctoral position is available in the Materials Innovation Factory and Autonomous Chemistry Laboratory focussing on the experimental part of the ERC ADAM project. ADAM (Autonomous Discovery of Advanced Materials) is a 6-year, €10 M Synergy Grant funded by the European Research Council. ADAM brings together state-of-the-art predictive computational chemistry methods, autonomous robots and materials synthesis and characterisation to develop the next generation of smart mobile robotic chemists.
You will report to Professor Andrew Cooper FRS and will interact with collaborators at the Universities of Southampton and Rostock. will be researching new ways to make computationally selected organic materials and the molecular building blocks that they comprise. The core contribution will be in assessing the synthetic viability of the building blocks that are suggested by computational predictions and developing methods, including automated robotic methods, to obtain them. You should have a PhD in a relevant discipline and will add specific skills and ideas to our combined team capabilities in robotics, computational chemistry, and materials research.
The post is available on a fixed term basis, until 31st October 2024.
