Subject: 23.11.16 A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the group of Research Professor Stepan Sklenak at the J. Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic.
A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the group of Research Professor
Stepan Sklenak at the J. Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Czech
Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic.

The postdoctoral fellow will use mainly periodic DFT to model the structure,
reactivity, catalytic activity and properties of zeolite based materials. The
scientific work will be done in a close collaboration with experimentalists. The
position requires a strong scientific background in either computational (applied
quantum) chemistry (experience with QM/MM and periodic DFT approaches is a plus) or
solid state physics (experience with periodic DFT approaches for studying crystalline
solids is a plus).

Interested individuals should read the publications as follows:

Sites in Zeolite Matrices", J. Phys. Chem. C, 2022, 126, 4854-4861.

The applicant must hold a PhD. degree in chemistry or physics. Interested
individuals should contact Dr. Sklenak via email and send their CV, brief summary
of previous research, list of publications and names plus e-mail addresses
of 1 - 2 references.

The position is initially for 1 year with a possibility of an extension depending on
the availability of the funding and if mutually agreeable.

The J. Heyrovsky Institute is located in the beautiful and safe city of Prague (the
capital of the Czech Republic). Prague offers outstanding opportunities for culture
and entertainment.
