IBM’s Future of Climate initiative aims to address the pressing issue of mitigating the effects and impacts of climate change. Given the urgency, we must accelerate the process of discovery to enable our sustainable future.
- You will join IBM’s global initiative to accelerate scientific progress by discovering new materials to capture carbon dioxide out of flue gases. You will create computational workflows to calculate physical and chemical quantities of interest for novel molecules and materials design. You will collaborate with a global team of computational and experimental scientists to quickly go from idea to curated datasets of materials properties and experimental characterisation. You will contribute to original research, aim to publish at top conferences and journals (Nature, Science, PNAS) and create impactful cloud-based demos.
- Ability to collaborate with a global team. You are a clear communicator, deliver work on time and are proactive in generating novel ideas to achieve the team’s milestones.
- Software development skills in Python & Jupyter. Proven experience taking ideas to well-documented and version-controlled prototypes.
- A record of novel research pushing the boundaries of the field. You have a record showing innovative applications of cheminformatics and quantum chemistry for designing new materials that outperform state of the art.
Qualification & Experience:
- Experience with quantum chemistry. Experience of creating, running and analysing quantum chemistry calculations.
- Undergraduate or postgraduate degree in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or closely related field.
- Experience with cheminformatics and machine learningusing Python. Proficient in with tools & techniques including RDKit, molecular fingerprinting and chemical graph searching together with regression and classification.
