Postdoc in fundamental electro-catalytic phenomena at electrified interfaces of interest for energy and nanotechnology

Imperial College London

Closing date: 31 July 2020

Reference: NAT00717

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research associate positions in the group of Dr. Clotilde Cucinotta in the Department of Chemistry, ICL, UK.

Salary Range: £40,215 – £47,579 plus benefits (depending on skills and experience­)

Duration: Initial two years, extensible under mutual agreement


Essential requirements: In-depth prior knowledge of DFT, electronic structure theory and/or molecular dynamics techniques.
Having good programming skills will be considered an advantage.

You will focus 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 (e.g. water splitting).

You will use a combination of state of the art and newly developed techniques, including ab initio molecular dynamics
and potential / free energy techniques. You will also benchmark and pioneer the non-equilibrium MD methods which are being developed
within the group and may carry out minor implementation activities.  

The post is funded through a prestigious multidisciplinary EPSRC Fellowship project, to develop and apply new theoretical and
computational methodologies for the ab-initio simulation of electrochemical materials and processes at the nanoscale, under operating conditions.
