Postdoctoral Research Associate in Robotics for Materials Discovery (Grade 7)

University of Liverpool - Department of Chemistry

Location: Liverpool
Salary: £36,386 to £42,155 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 24th November 2022
Closes: 4th January 2023
Job Ref: 052410

A postdoctoral position is available as part of a 6-year, €10 M Synergy Grant from the European Research Council – Autonomous Discovery of Advanced Materials (ADAM). ADAM brings together state-of-the-art predictive computational chemistry methods, autonomous robots and materials synthesis and characterisation through a collaboration between research groups at the universities of Southampton, Rostock, and Liverpool. This builds on our recent development of the ‘mobile robotic chemist’ (Nature, 2020, 583, 237; see also https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBwZp5Bg2L8).

We seek candidates for a postdoctoral position in robotics. You will play a key role in developing the robots themselves and work with chemistry researchers to deploy these robots in real experiments. You will build new workflows, coordinating with other team members in Liverpool and with collaborators in Southampton (computational chemistry) and in Rostock (robotics; both hardware and software elements). A strong and proven aptitude for team working is essential, in addition to specific technical skills. The main criteria for this role are a proven track record in a related area of robotics, and a passion for the concept of autonomous research using robots. No prior experience of chemistry is required.

The project will be supervised by Professor Andrew Cooper FRS and it will be based in the Materials Innovation Factory and the Autonomous Chemistry Laboratory. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with unique robotic platforms and to gain experience that could help to launch a career either in academia or in industry. The post is available for 3 years.
