Organization Description:

Postdoctoral and PhD positions to work with Dr. Manuel Melle-Franco at University of Minho, Computer Science and Technology Center through FCT, Portuguese Foundation for Science Technology. 

Job Description:

We are looking for outstanding candidates to work in theoretical and computational studies of carbon nanomaterials. Current research interests comprise but are not limited to:

(i) electronic properties of carbon nanomaterials

(ii) 3D structure of 2D graphene and GNRs 

(iii) chemical reactivity and functionalization of carbon nanomaterials

(iv) In-silico study of unknown and uncharacterized materials, nanopores, nanocones, etc.

 


Methodologically the group works with QM, TB, MM/MD, multiscale and mesoscopic simulations with a large number of external and locally modified codes. Programming, modifying, and/or developing models and codes is encouraged.

 

We have a large number of experimental collaborations with whom direct interaction of the hired researchers is foreseen. 

 

Our group runs a cluster with > 500 cores and several state of the art GPUs.  Programming and software development projects are also available.

 

Requirements:


Postdoc fellowships are funded for six years (3 + 3) and are open to all nationalities

Ph.D. Scholarships are funded for four years (3+1) and are ONLY available for European citizens or foreigners with permanent residence in Portugal.

 

Deadline for application is the 30th of July. 

 

Submission Information:

Send a full CV, with a short note saying the reasons for your applications and preferred research topic plus at least one reference letter before the 1st of July to manu [at] di [dot] uminho [dot] pt.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
