Post Doctoral Chemistry and Material Science: University of Reading 2132 views


  • Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join a project to investigate materials for thermoelectric energy harvesting.
  • The project is funded through the EPSRC Global Challenges Research Fund initiative and seeks to develop new solid-state materials for the extraction of electrical power from traditional Indian cook stoves (chulhas).
  • The project will focus on new mixed-metal chalcogenides related to copper sulphide minerals that are abundant in India.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Hold, or be near the completion of, a PhD in Chemistry, Physics or a related discipline;
  • have relevant experience in computational chemistry, physics, or materials science;
  • have an good publication track record;  be strongly motivated with good organisational skills;

About the position:

  1. The Postdoctoral Researcher will be responsible for the computer simulation of the thermoelectric behaviour of the materials, including the calculation of electron and phonon structure using density functional theory, and the estimation of electron and phonon transport coefficients using Boltzmann transport theory.
  2. In addition to using local computing resources at the University of Reading, the researcher will perform simulations at the Tier 1 national supercomputer facility ARCHER2 (via membership of the UK HPC Materials Chemistry Consortium), and the Tier 2 facility Young (via membership of the Materials and Molecular Modelling Hub, which the University of Reading has recently joined).

How to apply:

  • Applications for job-share, part-time and flexible working arrangements are welcomed and will be considered in line with business needs.
