Professor, Soft Matter Modelling

Aalto University

Espoo, Finland

We are looking for a dedicated professional with ambition for ground-breaking academic work in the field of Soft Matter Modelling. The application areas of modelling we are interested in are related to biobased materials, nanocellulose, and bioengineering. Systems can be studied on different length-scales from molecular to mesoscale, with approaches including atomistic to coarse-grained. Surfaces, self-assembly, and colloidal systems are of interest. The professor is expected to collaborate with other research groups working in Soft Matter areas to solve challenging materials science problems.

Your role and our expectations

As a professor, we expect you to establish a high-level research group in the field of soft matter modeling. This requires capability to obtain external funding, supervise researchers and ability to collaborate with other research groups. On long term, we also expect you to teach in B.Sc., M.Sc. and doctoral levels. Teaching will relate to statistical mechanics, physical chemistry, and computational methods.

The School of Chemical Engineering hosts several research groups focusing on Soft Matter research. Most of our research focuses on sustainable materials like biobased materials, biomacromolecules, nanocellulose, bioengineering. The School of Chemical Engineering is hosting a prestigious Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence LIBER and Flagship FinnCERES. Both focus on sustainable approaches for soft matter research and they are potential collaborators with the new professor.

A doctoral degree in chemistry, physics or in a related field is a prerequisite for the position. We expect you to have expertise of molecular modelling from atomic scale to µm scale. Proven ability or potential to obtain external funding and experience of researcher supervision is valued. We appreciate experience of multiscale or coarse-grained simulations and/or machine learning.
