Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual European Fellowships
The Hylleraas Centre for Quantum Molecular Sciences is opening a postdoctoral position application in the field of Computational Catalysis applied to high-impact reactions, including 1) Oxygen evolution from water, 2) Methane oxidation to methanol and 3) Carbon dioxide reduction to formate. State-of-the-art computational methods will be used, in close collaboration with experimental groups. Reaction mechanisms will be thoroughly characterized in terms of both structure and energy with the aim of developing accurate and reliable models for rational catalyst design. You can read a recent example of our research here.
The following are also evaluated positively:
How to apply: Interested applicants should first contact the PI, Dr. David Balcells, by e-Mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) attaching a short CV with the list of publications, together with a motivation letter and one or two recommendations. The preselection process will involve Skype interviews. Eligible applicants will be contacted and supported in the process of submitting a competitive proposal to the Marie Sklodowska-Curie program.
Benefits from the fellowship: Competitive salary covering living, traveling and family costs.
Application deadline: 12 September 2018
Start date: Not later than May 2019
Location: Oslo, Norway
About us: We are a Centre of Excellence funded by the Norwegian Research Council. The mission of the Centre is to develop and apply computational methods to study the chemistry, physics and biology of molecules in complex and extreme environments. The Centre has a strong focus on resolving systems both in space and time, and understanding matter-field interactions and extreme environments.
