Postdoc: modelling of nanomaterials and bionano interactions, University College Dublin, Ireland

EU Horizon Europe nanoPASS project opportunity at the School of Physics, University College Dublin, Ireland.

Postdoc position: 24 months with a possible extension, salary range €42,032 - €48,427 per annum, depending on experience, from October 1st 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The main task of the team is to evaluate properties of industrial nanomaterials (NM) to enable a prediction of NM functionalities and assess their potential hazard using nanoinformatics techniques. The particular tasks will include development of multiscale methods for calculation of physchem properties of NMs and their interaction with biomolecules, performing calculations of NM properties, and development of predictive models using machine learning. The work will be done in collaboration with the existing team at UCD and with other EU project partners specialised in experimental material characterisation and toxicology.

Candidates should have a background in computer simulation (atomistic MD, coarse-grained MD, or quantum chemical methods), statistical mechanics, computational chemistry or soft condensed matter. Programming experience is also essential. Experience with machine learning is also welcome.
