OTHER DETAILS

Ref. num. PD07-VIRMETAL

Post-doctoral Research Associate in Atomistic Modelling of Metallic Alloys


IMDEA Materials (Madrid Institute for Advanced Studies of Materials) is a non-profit, independent research institute, promoted by the Regional Government de Madrid (Spain), to carry out research in Materials Science and Engineering. IMDEA Materials Institute is committed to excellence in research by attracting talent from all over the world and to foster technology transfer to the industrial sector in a truly international environment. More information about the activities of the Institute can be found at: http://www.materials.imdea.org

DESCRIPTION

Research activities will be focused in the development an application of atomistic strategies (ab initio, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, cluster expansion, etc.) to simulate phase diagrams, solid state transformations and dislocation/defect interactions in metallic alloys.

REQUIREMENTS

Candidates should hold PhD in Computational Materials Science, Physics, Materials Science (or related discipline) with excellent academic credentials and a strong commitment to develop an academic career in an international and multidisciplinary environment. Fluent English (oral and written) is required. Previous experience in either ab initio, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, cluster expansion, transition state theory is required.

CONDITIONS

Full time contract including social security coverage. Salary depending on previous experience and credentials.
