Postdoc Position in Modelling Core-electron Spectroscopy

A new opening postdoctoral researcher position in spectroscopy is available at Imperial College London, UK. Applications are invited up to October 25, 2019.

Core-electron X-ray photoemission spectroscopy (XPS) is a powerful experimental technique to study chemical reactions on catalytic surfaces but interpreting measured spectra and assigning peaks to specific molecules is notoriously difficult. To tackle this challenge, we propose to develop highly accurate first-principles modelling techniques to predict the spectroscopic fingerprint of molecules adsorbed on solid surfaces.

You will be required to take the following health and safety training courses for the post.

Should you have any queries please contact, Johannes Lischner -

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range 35,477- 38,566 per annum.

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College's care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
