Portrait of Claudio Margulis
Claudio J. Margulis

Research in the Margulis group is theoretical and computational in nature. Areas of interest include the structure, dynamics and reactivity of room-temperature ionic-liquids and molecules dissolved in them; with some current projects being the development of theoretical tools to better interpret X-ray data in the liquid phase as well as at interfaces, the interpretation of spectroscopic properties of solutes and excess electrons dissolved in these liquids as well as charge transfer and transport. We also are very interested in high-temperature molten salts. Some of our projects involve theoretical work, whereas other projects heavily rely on high performance computing.

Postdoc Position Available

For a recently funded grant, I am looking for a postdoc that knows CP2K well (or other similar software), but that is also well rounded with theory in general to study excess electrons in ionic liquids.
