The full-time, fixed-term post is available for up to 12 months with an anticipated start date of early January 2022. There is the possibility of an extension to the end of April 2023.

You will undertake research on the theory of molecular scale thermoelectricity in the Device Modelling Group (www.warwick.ac.uk/nanolab ) at the University of Warwick. The position is funded by the UK research and Innovation (UKRI) Future Leaders Fellowship programme. You will assist the Principal Investigator and project partners in the successful execution of the project. You will undertake independent and collaborative research and will be expected to write up your research for publication.

You will be expected to co-supervise PhD and MSc students within the Device Modelling Group. This post is based at the University of Warwick.

SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
You will have a PhD in quantum condensed matter theory, atomistic modelling of materials, or theoretical nanoscience or a closely related field. You should be able to demonstrate strong computational modelling capabilities using first principles methods such as density functional theory and expertise in quantum transport calculations. Publication of papers in high ranked journal(s) is essential. You should be able to work independently and to participate creatively in refining research directions. You are expected to present the scientific results at national and international meetings and publish in high-ranked peer-reviewed journals. You will have excellent verbal and written communication skills, time management and IT skills, and will be able to interact effectively with experimental collaborators.

Applications from candidates in groups under-represented in the Engineering sector are particularly welcome.
