Project Description

The Department of Chemical Engineering at University College London (UCL) is seeking an enthusiastic Graduate Student to work on molecular modelling of the templated self-assembly of hierarchical materials.

Hierarchical materials such as metal-organic frameworks or zeolites have attracted increasing attention in the recent past. Due to their tunable porosity, surface area and topology, hierarchical materials are front runners in the race for a material-driven revolution in a variety of applications including separation processes, heterogeneous catalysis and drug delivery. In this project the candidate will apply molecular modelling techniques to investigate the self-assembly process of hierarchical architectures both in solution and on heterogeneous templates, with the aim of understanding their mechanisms of nucleation and growth.

This project will be co-funded by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratories, the successful candidate is expected to travel and visit collaborators, if necessary.

Funding Notes

The candidate will have or is expected to soon obtain an excellent first degree in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Physics or an associated discipline. Prior research experience, together with the ability to analyse, develop and solve open-ended research problems is essential. Desirable qualifications include knowledge in crystallization, physical chemistry, molecular simulation techniques, and UNIX-based operative systems.

Please note that due to funding restrictions the post is open to UK/EU citizens only.

Applications must be directly submitted via the UCL PRiSM portal at: https://www.prism.ucl.ac.uk/#!/?project=156
