OFFER DESCRIPTION

COMPETITION OPENING DATE: 1.12.2020

The succesull candidate will be employed for a period of 24 months and he/she will receive a gross salary of 10 000 PLN (~2200 EUR) per month (inlcuding taxes and obligatory employer and employee social security contributions). The research work will be carried out at the Institute of Theoretical Physics at the Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw, .as part of the project entitled: “Toxicological Aspects of New Two-Dimensional Nanomaterials from the MBenes family” (OPUS 18, NCN project). In the project, the candidate will carry out an electronic structure calculations, in the framework of the Density Functional Theory (DFT), for two-dimensional (2D) MBenes systems important for ongoing and future experimental works. The candidate's tasks will include theoretical research on surface, structural, energy and electron properties of selected MBenes compounds (Mo-B, Cr-B and Fe-B), as well as changes in their properties as a result of surface modification by different functional groups, resulting from the application of an appropriate method of synthesis of these compounds (close cooperation with the experimental group). Developing of machine learning tools and the use of the machine learning algorithms will be additional tasks. The aim of the research is to understand the origin of the physico-chemical properties of the compounds of the MBenes family and to identify the key features that may affect the toxicological aspects of these compounds.

The candidates have to conform to the conditions stated in art. 113 of Higher Education Law dated 20.07.2018. (Journal of Laws of the Republic of Poland 2020 item 85 with further amendments).

Selection process

The entire procedure will be concluded before 26.10.2021. The candidate might be asked for an interview with the commission appointed by the Dean of the Faculty.

 

Please submit all documents and queries to: Magdalena.Birowska@fuw.edu.pl

The project is financed by the National Science Center (NCN) under the OPUS 18 grant. The employed person must meet the following conditions required by the NCN:

- the doctoral degree has not been awarded by the entity in which the employment is planned;

- will be employed for a period of not less than 6 months;

- during the period of receiving this remuneration, he\she will not receive any other remuneration from funds classified as direct costs from research projects financed in NCN calls;

- during the period of receiving this remuneration, he\she will not receive remuneration from another employers on the basis of an employment contract, also with an employer based outside territory of Poland.

A post-doc position is a full-time position for a person who obtained a doctoral degree no earlier than 7 years before the year of employment in the project. This period may be extended by the duration of stay during this period, on long-term (over 90 days) documented benefits sickness or rehabilitation benefits in connection with incapacity for work. Additionally, the number of months on vacation can be added to this period related to the care and upbringing of children provided on the terms set out in the Code work, and in the case of women - 18 months for each born or adopted child, if this way of indicating breaks in a research career is more favourable.
