One 4-Year PhD Studentship Available

Deadline: February 2023
Start Date: March or September 2023

We have a fully funded 3-year PhD studentship available to join our group. This PhD project aims to develop machine learning algorithms to accelerate the discovery of electrocatalysts for CO2 conversion. The project is part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Doctoral Network ‘ECOMATES’ coordinated by Politecnico di Torino and which involves several leading institutions and companies across Europe.

Interested applicants should email their cover letter, CV, academic transcripts, and 2 referee contacts to Prof. García-Melchor at


One Postdoctoral Position Available

Deadline: Position available until filled
Start Date: From September 2022

We have one postdoctoral position available to join our group to work on the accelerated discovery of electrocatalysts for the water oxidation reaction. This position is initially for 1 year with the possibility to extend it for another year. Applicants must hold a PhD degree in Chemistry, Physics, Nanotechnology, or related discipline, and have extensive experience in machine learning and computational modelling of electrocatalysis using periodic density functional theory methods. Good experience in programming is required.

If you are interested in this position, please send your CV, a motivation letter, and the name of two referees to Prof. Max García-Melchor
