The Research and Applications Scientist will join CCDC’s newly formed Computational and Data Sciences team responsible for developing the science to support integration of state-of-the-art computational chemistry (e.g., crystal structure prediction) outputs with data-based insights. The successful applicant will help to develop the science behind the CCDC’s newest software suite, CSD-Theory, combining computational chemistry and data-driven (informatics-based) approaches to guide the discovery of new materials. This position will require the post holder to work alongside in-house experts and leading industrial and academic partners to develop new and innovate ways to derive information from a database of computed structures.
The Research and Applications Scientist will also provide scientific support to CCDC’s commercial activities surrounding CSD-Theory, including sales opportunities and customer support, and ensure alignment of the scientific strategy for CSD-Theory to customer feedback. It is anticipated that the post holder will have a good working knowledge of Python and solid-state computational chemistry to support the links between informatics and calculation. Applicants to this Cambridge UK-based post must also have excellent oral and written communication skills to share findings with the multi-disciplinary teams at the CCDC and our customers through presentations, reports, and peer reviewed publications.
