Research Associate - Computational and Theoretical Chemistry of Polar Surfaces in Solution (Fixed Term)

University of Cambridge - Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry

Location: Cambridge
Salary: £33,309 to £40,927 p.a.
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 10th January 2022
Closes: 10th February 2022
Job Ref: MA29667

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 17 months (subject to start date) in the first instance.

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research associate to join the group of Dr Stephen Cox at the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge (https://www.ch.cam.ac.uk/person/sjc236).

Polar crystal surfaces play an important role in environmental chemistry, catalysis and energy materials. Yet, modelling their behaviour, especially when in contact with solution environments, has posed major challenges. Building on recent work in the group [J. Chem. Phys. 153, 165709 (2020)], this project will involve developing and applying simulation techniques to determine the stable surface structures of polar crystals in solution, and the transition mechanisms between different structures. The duties/responsibilities of this post includes developing and driving research objectives, writing up work for presentation and publication, collaborating with experimental partners, assisting in the supervision of student research projects, and delivering seminars and occasional talks.

The successful candidate will have a strong background in the simulation of liquids and materials, including (or be about to obtain) a PhD in a relevant area. Experience with classical molecular dynamics simulations, and in theory and modelling of interfacial water and/or polar fluids is highly desirable. The ability to work both as part of a team, and independently, coupled with excellent communication, organisational and problem-solving skills are required.
