A Postdoctoral Fellowship is available in the group of Prof. Dr. Seda Keskin at Koc University, Istanbul, Turkey for the ERC-2017-STG project, COSMOS.

COSMOS (Computational Simulations of MOFs for Gas Separations) is a 5-year, ambitious project aiming to build a complete metal organic framework (MOF) library and use molecular simulations to assess adsorption and diffusion properties of gas mixtures in MOFs with a total funding of 1.5M Euros.

Applicants must have a PhD in Chemistry/Chemical Engineering/Materials Science or a relevant subject area. Research experience in computational modeling is expected. Strong oral and written communication skills in English are a must.

The candidate will be working in a dynamic environment with key focus on high-throughput simulations of MOFs for gas adsorption and diffusion. The applicant is expected to co-supervise PhD students, conduct research and write papers. Successful candidates will be offered a very competitive salary and benefits including accommodation close to Koc University, laptop, meal card and health insurance.

Applications should send by e-mail to skeskin@ku.edu.tr in a single PDF file including:

  1. a) Motivation letter (why do you want to join us?)
  2. b) Curriculum vitae.
  3. c) Description of previous research (1-2 pages).
  4. d) Names and contact addresses of two academic references.

Applications will be treated confidentially.
