Postdoctoral positions on computational materials design in China

Two postdoctoral research associate positions are available in the area of computational materials design, with a special focus on materials for energy storage and generation applications (hydrogen storage materials, electrocatalytic materials, battery materials, etc) at the Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Research areas include developing machine learning potentials for materials modelling, and/or mechanism study based on static and dynamic density functional theory (DFT) simulations. The computational work will be carried out in the group of Prof Guoliang Chai (, in collaboration with Dr Sanliang Ling ( at the University of Nottingham, UK. The positions will be offered on a fixed-term contract for a period of 2~3 years.

Desirable Qualification:
1. Experiences in computational chemistry/physics/materials.
2. Knowledge on DFT, molecular dynamics and/or machine learning approaches applied to computational materials modelling.
3. Highly motivated with excellent written and oral communication skills.

Salary and employment benefits:
• Salaries for postdoctoral research associates are set individually, which will be between 250,000~600,000 RMB/year, depending on experience.

Starting date
By agreement.

To apply, please send the following materials (pdf) to Prof Guoliang Chai ([email protected]):
• Motivation letter for the position, describing the candidate’s research experience (2 pages).
• CV and publication list.
• Contact details of two references.
