One Post-doctoral “Stavros Niarchos Foundation – FORTH Fellowship” for Institute of Applied and Computational Mathematics

Ref. Number: 78
Heraklion 1st February, 2017

The Institute of Applied and Computational Mathematics (IACM) of the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH), in the framework of the project ARCHERS, aimed at reducing or even reversing the brain drain, which is funded by an exclusive donation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, is seeking to recruit one (1) post-doctoral researcher.

Job Description The Post-doctoral researcher awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation – FORTH fellowship is expected to perform high-quality research on Computational Modeling of Nanostructured Materials with Applications in Energy. The research will focus on the development of novel molecular simulation methodologies for the study of complex polymeric based nanostructured molecular systems. The methods will be applied on various hybrid systems, such as heteroarm star polymers in solution and in melt, aiming in the understanding of the structural and the dynamical behavior and for the knowledgebased design of processes in such systems.

Eligibility criteria
• PhD in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, or Chemical Engineering.
• Good knowledge of Greek and English Language
• Experience in molecular simulations of polymeric materials

Desirable qualifications
• Good background in theory and modeling of hybrid macromolecular systems (30 %)
• Experience in mathematical and computational modeling of molecular systems (25 %)
• Good knowledge in programming (e.g. C++, Fortran90, etc.) (25 %)
• Publications in peer-reviewed journals (20%)

Location: IACM-FORTH, Heraklion Crete GREECE
Start Date: 1st of April, 2017
