About UM6P:

Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P) is an internationally oriented institution of higher learning, that is committed to an educational system based on the highest standards of teaching and research in fields related to the sustainable economic development of Morocco and Africa. UM6P is an institution oriented towards applied research and innovation. On a specific focus on Africa, UM6P aims to position these fields as the forefront and become a university of international standing.

More than just a traditional academic institution, UM6P is a platform for experimentation and a pool of opportunities, for students, professors and staff. It offers a high-quality living and study environment thanks to its state-of-the-art infrastructure. With an innovative approach, UM6P places research and innovation at the heart of its educational project as a driving force of a business model.

In its research approach, the UM6P promotes transdisciplinary, entrepreneurship spirit and collaboration with external institutions for developing up to date science and at continent level in order to address real challenges.

All our programs run as start-ups and can be self-organized when they reach a critical mass. Thus, academic liberty is promoted as far as funding is developed by research teams.

The research programs are integrated from long-term research to short-term applications in linkage with incubation and start-up ecosystems.

About CBS:

The Chemical & Biochemical Sciences Department is seeking applicants for PA position in computational research in interface chemical reactions to join our research team focused on studying reaction mechanisms and materials. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in modeling and simulation of atomic and molecular structures, along with extensive experience in analyzing the electronic and structural properties of materials. The position requires extensive knowledge in performing quantum mechanical calculations (e.g., first principles density functional theory (DFT)) to elucidate complex reaction mechanisms occurring at the surface of various materials.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Perform quantum mechanical calculations (DFT) for establishing reaction mechanisms and kinetics
  • Develop and apply advanced computational models to predict the chemical and physical
  • behaviours of materials
  • Collaborate with experimental teams to interpret results and guide future experiments.
  • Publish research findings in high-impact scientific journals and present at international conferences
  • Mentor and train students and junior researchers

Criteria of the candidate:

  • Ph.D. in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, or a closely related field.
  • Minimum of 3 to 5 years of postdoctoral experience or equivalent in using DFT for studying
  • reaction mechanisms and materials.
  • Demonstrated programming skills (Python, Fortran, C++).
  • Proven track record of publishing scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals.

Desired Skills:

  • Strong analytical skills and ability to solve complex problems.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team in a collaborative research environment.
  • Motivation for innovation and scientific excellence.
  • Ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously and meet deadlines.
