A post-doctoral researcher position is opened in the PCMT group of the PhLAM laboratory in Lille (France) to carry out modeling and laboratory studies at the Paul Scherrer Institute (Switzerland) on the role of interfacial processes and reactive oxygen species in the mechanisms of recycling of iodine species in the atmosphere. This position is financed for 24 months by the pilot project OVERSEE of I-SITE ULNE (http://www.isite-ulne.fr/index.php/en/oversee-modelisation-innovante-deserosols-de-radionucleides-2/).
The candidate will perform on the one hand laboratory experiments (kinetics experiments and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy) on iodine-containing molecules interacting with water/ organic interfaces in Markus Ammann's group at the Paul Scherrer Institute (Villigen, Switzerland) and on the other hand ab initio molecular dynamics and embedded electronic structure calculations to complement these experiments in the PCMT group (Lille, France).
The candidate should have obtained his/her PhD in theoretical chemistry or physics or atmospheric chemistry in a recognized group. A strong expertise in atomistic simulations and/or laboratory experiments is expected. Experience in both fields would be a definite advantage.
The candidate should be motivated, flexible, show initiative and an ability to work both independently and in a group.
Programming skills (Python, C++….) are highly expected.
Recognized communication skills are, of course, welcome.
The candidate will be affiliated at the PhLAM laboratory but will also have a visiting scientist position at PSI.
