Dear Subscribers to QE Mailing List

We welcome applications for the position below at University of Toronto (

*Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computational Materials Science for Renewable
Fuels and Feedstocks*

We invite applications to a postdoctoral fellowship pursuing the goal of
CO2 reduction to valuable fuels and feedstocks. The incumbent will bring
expertise in atomistic simulations for modeling heterogeneous catalysis,
ultimately to eluciate and then predict and optimize electrocatalytic
reactions such as CO2RR with the aid of *ab initio* simulations.

- familiarity with Linux operating system and high-performance cluster
- ab-initio modeling
- DFT software packages such as VASP, Quantum Espresso, CP2K
- ability to work in collaboration with experimentalists to advance
combined computational/ experimental efforts on new catalyst design.
*- proven experience and sucess in computational studies of heterogeneous

How to apply:
- please send your detailed CV listing your past publications, and names of
