The Choksi research group is seeking a Research Fellow funded by the National Research Foundation through CREATE. This position is part of the C4T project ( hosted by the Cambridge Centre for Advanced Research and Education in Singapore (CARES).

The Research Fellow will help advance foundational knowledge in transforming C1 feedstock into chemicals using thermal catalysis. The research fellow will employ electronic structure calculations, first principles thermodynamics, and microkinetic modelling to understand catalytic processes at the molecular scale.

Key Responsibilities:
  • Performing ab initio calculations for heterogeneous catalysts
  • Using ab initio thermodynamics to determine catalytic structures under working conditions
  • Calculating reaction rates using microkinetic models
  • Understanding the stability of nanoparticle catalysts
  • Working together with PhD students from Choksi's group, and undergraduate researchers
  • Writing papers and delivering technical presentations

Job Requirements:
  • PhD or equivalent in chemical engineering, chemistry, physics, material science or an allied field
  • Between 0-4 years of post-PhD work experience
  • Extensive experience in using quantum mechanical and molecular modelling packages like VASP and Quantum ESPRESSO, has advanced knowledge of first principles thermodynamics, and reaction kinetics modelling
  • Familiarity with Python and working in a Linux based platform is a bonus
  • Intellectually curious and think deeply and creatively
  • Good interpersonal skills and enjoy working in cross disciplinary teams
  • Demonstrate proficiency in written and spoken English
  • Ability to work independently
