 +======= PostDoc positions available in Theoretical Chemistry in Lyon, France ======= ​
 +
 +Several positions are available in the group of Theoretical Chemistry of the Chemistry Lab at the ENS de Lyon, Lyon, France. This group gathers several PIs and span a variety of topics, from the simulation of ionic liquids to catalysis, and a variety of scales, from nano to mesoscale. The group can access a local meso center (8000 CPU) and the national clusters. With more than 16 PhD students and PostDocs from more than 10 different countries, it is very international,​ and Lyon in a very attractive town for academics, with a dedicated service to welcome scientists and their families. ​
 +
 +Send an email to the corresponding PI with a short motivation statement, a CV and two to three contacts for recommandation. ​

 +** Description **
 +
 +A postdoc position of 18 month is available to work with Dr. Carine Michel & Dr. Stephan Steinmann in the laboratory of computational chemistry of ENS Lyon (France). It is financed by Total.
 +The development of high performance fuel is an important challenge in the optimization of engine work, energetic consumption decrease, etc. The knowledge of how fuel additives are working is becoming crucial. Among additives that are used in the formulation,​ detergents are very important in the ‘clean up’ process of the engine. Relying on molecular simulations (DFT and DFT-B), the objective here is to obtain a better understanding at the nanoscale of the action of detergents toward soot and metallic surface in order to identify key parameters and to screen molecules for highest efficiency. This will enable to design optimal detergents. Frequent exchange with Total will be needed and parallel experimental studies at Total will be performed in order to validate the theoretical results
 +
 +We invite candidates with a completed PhD degree (or equivalent) in computational chemistry, physics or materials science. The successful candidate is expected to bring strong interest in applying simulation methods to solving problems of industrial and scientific interest and would be creative, curious, initiative taker and open-minded person. Strong knowledge of DFT or semi- empirical methods are required, with preferentially both and some knowledge of classical simulations and physical-chemistry of interfaces is a plus. Interest and ability for scripting with Python will be appreciated. We further expect good written and oral communication skills in English, the ability to work independently,​ and cooperate with partners.
 +ENS Lyon has a strong track record in the modeling of heterogeneous catalysts using periodic DFT and is currently developing novel strategies to describe slid/​liquidinterfaces. This top-ranked French university is located in the beautiful city of Lyon in the south of France (UNESCO Heritage Site). The work-contract of 18 month includes French Social Welfare (basic health insurance, un- employement insurance, etc).
 +Please send your application (including a 1-page motivation letter illustrating your research interests, CV, and contact information of at least two references) to Dr. Carine Michel (carine.michel_at_ens-lyon.fr) or Dr. Sophie Loehlé (sophie.loehle_at_total.com).
