MSCA Individual Fellow oppportunities

Opportunities for joining the CTCC in Tromsø through the Arctic MSCA-IF program.

There are now multiple opportunities to join the CTCC in Tromsø as a postdoc by developing a competitive Marie-Sklowdowska-Curie Individual Fellow proposal in collaboration with senior researchers at the CTCC.. You get support to visit the CTCC in Tromsø, get training in how to write a competitive MSCA-IF proposal and to work with one of the senior researchers at the CTCC in Tromsø in developing such a proposal. There are multiple potential supervisors and research directions:

  • Bjørn Olav Brandsdal: "The MSCA candidate will work with in-house enzymes which are of industrial relevance with particular emphasis on enzymes responsible for biomass transformation using quantum mechanics, empirical valence bond simulations and classical molecular dynamics simulations." More details can be found here.
  • Luca Frediani: "Development and application of multiwavelets (MWs) as a new approach for reliable and accurate calculations of DFT energies and molecular properties with guaranteed precision". More details can be found here.
  • Abhik Ghosh: "The project focuses on environmentally Benign Main-Group Element Reagents for Biofuels. Of particular interest are environmentally benign iodine and bismuth complexes. The project will be pursued on two fronts, synthetic and computational. " More information can be found here.
  • Kathrin H. Hopmann: "The project aims to develop novel metal-based catalysts for transformations of CO2 (see also site.uit.no/choco). The prospective candidate will work on computational studies of metal-based catalysts, with the goal to obtain a detailed understanding of factors relevant for catalyst performance." More details can be found here.
  • Michal Repisky: "Development and application of efficient relativistic two- and four-component quantum-chemical methods for the understanding of molecular responses to external perturbations". More details can be found here.
  • Kenneth Ruud: "Development and/or application of electronic-structure-based methods to model nonlinear vibrational or electronic spectroscopies". More details can be found here.
