The Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) is seeking a Postdoctoral researcher.
ICIQ is committed to performing excellent research at the frontier of knowledge in the broad area of chemistry (Catalysis, Artificial Photosynthesis, Activation of Small Molecules, Photovoltaics, Functional Molecular Assemblies and Chemical Biology, from either theoretical or experimental perspectives). The institute also aims at training the future generation of scientists by offering high-quality educational programmes to master, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers (Full details on http://www.iciq.org/).
Our mission is to lead, from the vantage point of molecular science, cross-strategies for solving major social and economic challenges, such as climate change and sustainable supply of energetic and raw materials, thereby contributing to the establishment of a knowledge-based economy and improving citizens’ quality of life in our influence area.
ICIQ is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Feliu Maseras. The candidate will work on the computational estimation of the degradation time of solids.
The candidate will help in the implementation of new computational schemes developed in the group from studies of ball milling mechanochemistry to other processes. These will include drug degradation and decomposition of recalcitrant residues. A special focus will be placed in the proper introduction of microkinetic modeling with the goal of reproducing experimental data to the point of reaction times. Collaboration in the training of graduate and master students will be expected.
