IMDEA Materials Institute is looking for post-doctoral researchers willing to apply for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships (PF) in call 2021. IMDEA Materials Institute has a long track record of hosting MSCA fellows and has obtained outstanding success rates in recent calls of MSCA PF.

Interested candidates (if successful) will join the Data-driven Materials Discovery group led by Dr Maciej Haranczyk. The group is focused on design of advanced functional porous materials for various applications from energy to health and food. The group is interested in (1) development and applications of computational and material informatics tools to discovery framework-based as well as molecular porous materials, and (2) data-driven experimental approaches that lead to practical realizations of optimal material designs.

The candidate will gain experience in building multidisciplinary approaches and complex workflows that combine aspects of molecular simulations, material informatics and machine learning, and apply them in the context of design of next generation materials for molecular storage, separations and other technologies. As the techniques involved are multidisciplinary, this opportunity welcomes candidates of various technical backgrounds, from chemistry and material science to applied mathematics and computer science. Furthermore, interested candidates may explore the possibility of enriching their fellowship experience by spending part of it with one of the collaborating groups at top-notch research institutions outside of Spain.

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST:

Interested candidates please send your resume with a brief outline of career goals via email to Dr. Maciej Haranczyk (Maciej.haranczyk@imdea.org) before July 15th 2021.

DESCRIPTION OF THE MSCA POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS:

The purpose of the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships (MSCA PF) is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of researchers holding a PhD, wishing to acquire new skills through advanced training and international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral mobility. The grant typically covers two years' salary, research costs and overheads for the host institution.

The mobility rule requires that the researcher has not resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization (Spain, in the case of IMDEA Materials Institute) for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the call deadline (expected to be October 12th 2021 for call 2021). Moreover, only candidates with research experience up to 8 years postdoc from the date the PhD degree was granted are eligible (with possible exceptions).
