The computational laboratory at the Department of Chemical Science at Ariel University in Israel is seeking a Ph.D. student to conduct a computational research in the area of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, using small molecules and nano-particles. The candidate will join a well-established enthusiastic group of scientists under the supervision of Prof. Haya Kornweitz and will join our effort to explore the properties of transition metal catalysts and support materials for inorganic processes. This research is expected to lead to fundamental understanding of the reactions mechanism leading to practical and theoretical application. Ariel University offers a collaborative research environment and features state-of-the-art research facilities relevant to the proposed position. A full competitive scholarship and subsidized accommodation are offered to prospective candidates in this program.
A successful M.Sc. in Chemistry or Chemical Physics. Preferred Qualifications: former studies and experience in computational chemistry, with experience in using G16 (g09) and/or VASP and other relevant software, journal publications record.
