Research Fellow to study Molecular Simulation at University of Strathclyde, UK

Starting salary £25,889 (depending on qualifications and experience)

The Department of Chemical and Process Engineering at University of Strathclyde, UK invites applications for a postdoctoral position in molecular simulation.

The project combines theory with experiment in a fundamental study of the phase behaviour of polymer-clay nanocomposite materials.

It is funded jointly by the EPSRC and AWE (a division of the MOD) for a period of up to 36 months, starting August at the earliest.

Candidates are sought who have, or are about to obtain, a PhD in the field of theoretical physical chemistry/chemical physics, preferably with experience of molecular simulation or soft-matter theory.

The post-doctoral fellow will perform Monte-Carlo simulations of clay nanoparticles dispersed in a range of mixed monomer-polymer solvents, and compare results with experiments performed by colleagues in the Departments of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry.

To apply, e-mail your CV and covering letter directly to martin.sweatman@strath.ac.uk.

Your CV should include a list of your publications, a statement of your research interests and plans, and the contact details of at least 2 personal referees.

Applications closing date: 5th July.
