Dear friends and colleagues,

Enclosed, please, find an advertisement with two positions (junior and
senior postdocs) we have available at the RICH Center at KU in Abu
Dhabi, for a collaborative project with Sir Prof. Andre Geim, from the
University of Manchester. We are seeking for candidates with excellent
computational skills and track records. Salaries and conditions are very

I’d appreciate if you can circulate this around possible candidates.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,




*Positions offered *

OneResearch Scientist Position and one Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Position are available at Khalifa University, United Arab Emirates
(UAE). The positions are offered to perform computational work under the
supervision of Prof. Lourdes F. Vega, on the project “*Novel 2D-crystals
for the hydrogen economy*”.

The appointment will be made for up to 3 years, based on satisfactory

*Project Description***

The objective of the project is to explore and develop 2D-crystals as a
disruptive technology addressing some of the challenges faced by
hydrogen energy conversion technologies, a collaborative work to be
carried out between Prof. Sir Andre Geim

Prize in Physics) and his team at the University of Manchester (UoM),
and Prof. Lourdes F. Vega <;!!D9dNQwwGXtA!XzBcR7Rc0-HNbZypGStLNziOwgYvOk5jJ9v_fdyhSZmc03A8VrULFs9m21dwoU4FRu-s1ISXgZqyWglWVNkwDi6l$ >and
her team at Khalifa University (KU). The project is funded by the
Research & Innovation Center for Graphene and 2D Materials (RIC-2D
Center <;!!D9dNQwwGXtA!XzBcR7Rc0-HNbZypGStLNziOwgYvOk5jJ9v_fdyhSZmc03A8VrULFs9m21dwoU4FRu-s1ISXgZqyWglWVFN5naUv$ >), hosted by Khalifa University, as
part of a strategic investment by the Government of Abu Dhabi, UAE.

We search for two candidates to pursue fundamental research using
computational modelling tools on novel 2D-materials to be used as proton
conductive membranes for hydrogen production. The project involves
applying multiscale molecular modelling methods such as Quantum and
Molecular Mechanics (QM/MM) methods, Electronic Structure and
transition-state calculations based on Density Functional Theory (DFT),
Molecular Dynamics (MD) studies and Machine Learning. The multiscale
modelling calculations carried at KU will be combined with experimental
techniques used at UoM to interpret exciting new discoveries and to
further guide the synthesis and testing of the experiments.

*Required Education/qualification/skills*

·PhD degree in Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry,Chemical
engineering, or related fields.

·Strong background in theoretical and computational physics/chemistry,
as proven by a track record of publications, as well as proven
experience with computational software for quantum chemistry, classical
molecular simulations, and/or reactive force fields.

·Experience in 2D materials will be a plus. Knowledge in machine
learning algorithms and/or network science is an advantage.

·The Research Scientist position requires at least three years of
postdoctoral experience, mastering computational modelling, and some
project management and supervision records.

We seek enthusiastic and highly talented individuals, with initiative,
creativity, and willing to work in an international and
interdisciplinary team. Excellent communication skills, both oral and
written are required. Motivation to solve challenging problems,
including the need to meet tight deadlines, to perform multiple tasks,
and to support other researchers. Able to work independently yet a good
team player. Ability to quickly learn about new topics and tools.

*What we offer*

Very competitive salary, considering the qualifications of the candidate.

Access to a well-developed research infrastructure, including the RIC-2D
and the RICH centres and KU HPC facilities.

A dynamic climate and innovative research atmosphere inviting lively,
open, and critical discussion within and across different fields of
research, with multidisciplinary and multicultural teams.

Living and sharing experiences in Abu Dhabi, a very modern, vibrant and
dynamic city to live and work.

*How to apply*

_Interested candidates clearly meeting the above requirement_can send
their CVsand a cover letter indicating experience and motivation as
related to the position, availability, and the name and contact
information of three possible referees for recommendation letters, to
