Optimal search strategies for automated, robotic material discovery
Dr J Fearnley, Prof A Cooper
Applications accepted all year round
This position will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found. New functional materials are central to society but they can be hard to find in the laboratory because of the astronomical search space that is defined by the available atomic and molecular building blocks.

The vision of the project is to transform materials discovery into a routine computational task. Materials discovery still needs a lot of human expertise, trial-and-error and even pure luck, because there is no rigorous theory to guide an efficient search in the huge space of all theoretically possible materials.
