Please note - informal enquiries concerning vacancies should be addressed to Prof. Cooper but all applications must be sent directly to our Human Resources Department (see details below)

Postdoctoral positions:

There are 5 postdoctoral research positions available currently, based at the Huazhong University of Science & Technology, more information available.

Research Fellows:

There are two 5-year Fellowships available in Functional Materials Design, funded by the Leverhulme Trust and based in the new Materials Innovation Factory.

One as the theme leader for Organic Materials, and the other position in Informatic and Cognitive Computing

PhD Studentships:

‘Seeing’ new organic ferroelectrics (iCase joint with IBM Research UK)

The Leverhulme Research Centre for Functional Materials Design at the University of Liverpool seeks motivated and enthusiastic applicants for 48-month PhD studentship funded by the EPSRC Industrial CASE Studentship scheme.

This student will develop state-of-the-art computation, pattern recognition algorithms, and machine learning to guide systematic experimental investigations in the Materials Innovation Factory into all-organic molecular room temperature ferroelectrics that are flexible, non-toxic, and solution processable. More generally, the project will build a new computational platform for the prediction of function from structure and available literature, through the use of information extraction and knowledge representation techniques. More information available.
