2. Modelling “on-water” chemical reactions,
3. Method development: extracting thermodynamic variables from molecular dynamics trajectories, e.g., the Two-phase thermodynamics model
Terrific opportunities to work with experimentalists in our Group and our external collaborators.
The candidate should have a PhD in theoretical/computational chemistry or materials science. We expect the individual to be
• Curiosity-driven, meticulous dedicated, and a team player
