Computational Chemistry & Catalysis 3 Ph.D. Position @ TU Delft Netherland

Applied Sciences

The Faculty of Applied Sciences is the largest faculty of TU Delft, with around 550 scientists, a support staff of 250 and 1,800 students. The faculty conducts fundamental, application-oriented research and offers scientific education at the bachelor, master and doctoral levels. The faculty is active in the fields of Life and Health Science & Technology, Nanoscience, Chemical Engineering, Radiation Science & Technology, and Applied Physics.

The mission of the Department of Chemical Engineering (ChemE) is to generate knowledge and educate people in the area of nanochemical engineering to improve the quality of life for a sustainable society, focusing on energy, water, health, and the environment.

The Inorganic Systems Engineering group led by Dr. E.A. Pidko (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Evgeny_Pidko) will officially start at the ChemE Department in September 2017. Our key interests are directed towards the creation of a mechanistic description of chemical processes in complex environments and translation of such fundamental knowledge into design rules for new technologies relevant to sustainable chemistry, functional materials, and catalysis. The cornerstone of our research ideology is the interdisciplinary approach based on a complementary use of advanced theory and experiments which are not limited by the boundaries of classical research disciplines.
Job description

The DeLiCAT project focuses on the development of new computational methods to aid the design and synthesis of new base metal hydrogenation catalysts. The PhD projects focus on mechanistic studies in multicomponent catalytic systems and/or development of new computational methods for reaction path analysis. The successful candidates will become members of an interdisciplinary research team working on challenging problems of modern catalysis science and inorganic chemistry.

Requirements

Successful applicants should hold a Master’s degree (or the equivalent) and have a background in physical chemistry, catalysis, computational or theoretical chemistry and/or computer science. An interest in and aptitude for integrating modern information technologies and chemistry are essential. An interest in complexity sciences and affinity for new method development is highly desirable. Communication skills are important, and applicants should have a high level of proficiency in written and spoken English. The successful candidate will be expected to cooperate closely with other members of the research team as well as with external collaborators from both industry and academia.

Conditions of employment

The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers child care and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
As a PhD candidate you will be enrolled in the TU Delft Graduate School. The TU Delft Graduate School provides an inspiring research environment; an excellent team of supervisors, academic staff and a mentor; and a Doctoral Education Programme aimed at developing your transferable, discipline-related and research skills. Please visit http://graduateschool.tudelft.nl/ for more information.

Information and application

For more information about this position, please contact Dr. E.A. Pidko, E.A.Pidko@tudelft.nl. Applications should include:
(1) Curriculum Vitae (with publications if you have any)
(2) Course lists with grades and degree certificates
(3) A letter of application in which you explain both your motivation and the relevance of your skills and experience for this research project. The application letter should be on topic; generic letters will cause your application to be rejected immediately.
Please e-mail your application by 20 August 2017 to Mrs. C.J. Wilhelm, C.J.Wilhelm@tudelft.nl.
When applying for this position, please refer to vacancy number TNWCE17-031.
