3 Postdoctoral positions on Multiscale Modelling - [ Postdoc ]

Workplace: , IIT@Polito
Added on: 15/07/2016 - Expires on: 15/10/2016

3 Post Doc positions will be available starting from 2017 at CSF@Polito for highly motivated candidates in the area of multiscale modelling of materials and processes.

In particular, the positions concerns:

  • modelling of enzymatic methabolic pathways to assist the Synthetic and systems biology studies of the Centre;
  • computational chemistry and physics of heterogeneous, photo and electro catalysts and semiconductors to assist the developments of nanoengineered materials for energy conversion;
  • modelling and design of chemical reactors and separation units
  • modelling and optimisation of chemical and biochemical processes.

The objective of the IIT Center for Sustainable Futures (CSF@Polito) in Torino, directed by Prof. Guido Saracco, is to make a step further in the study of the future generation of sustainable technologies (use of CO2 as feedstock, distributed manufacturing based on renewable sources, low-grade-heat exploitation) to meet the stringent targets established by the COP21 assembly in Paris (December 2015) to mitigate climate change effects.

Software tools will be made available to the selected candidates depending on their specific expertise. A good knowledge of such modelling tools at least in one of the above areas of expertise is required.

Candidates should have (or be about to get) a PhD degree in a relevant discipline (e.g. chemistry, physics, chemical engineering, materials engineering, etc.).

Preferential requirements are a good track list of ISI publications, previous experience gained in modelling efforts in worldwide recognized groups, coordination of undergraduate of PhD students.

A good knowledge of the English language is also required.

The selection will be accomplished based on the above criteria, with the aim to cover as much as possible the broad range of multiscale modelling disciplines mentioned above.

Interested applicants should send their CVs and 2 reference letters by email both to applications@iit.it and  sara.perrucci@iit.it quoting “  Post doc Torino Multiscale modelling” in the subject line. 

Please apply before October 15, 2016.
