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

Applicants must have a PhD in Chemistry/Chemical Engineering/Materials Science or a relevant subject area. Research experience in computational modeling of MOFs 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, laptop, and health insurance.
