Research opportunities

PhD offer in Computational Catalysis

September 2019

The position is dedicated to computational catalysis for the rational design of ‘green’, low-cost catalytic nanoparticles. Excellent command of written and spoken English is expected.

The Laboratory of Aerosol and Particle Technology of the Department of Chemical Engineering and the Goerigk Research Group of the School of Chemistry at the University of Melbourne offer an exciting opportunity for a PhD position in nanoparticle science. The project aims at the rational design of ‘green’, low-cost catalytic nanoparticles by interfacing quantum mechanics and molecular dynamics simulations.

Highly motivated candidates who are interested in completing a PhD that revolves around solving chemical-engineering and chemical problems on the computer are invited to apply online through the university website. Applicants must satisfy the course eligibility criteria and will be subject to standard University and Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology application and vetting procedures.
