Job position at George Mason University. Deadline is on

Postdoctoral Research Fellow – Computational Materials Modeling

Physics & Astronomy

Job summary
The George Mason University, Department of Physics and Astronomy, is seeking applicants for 2 Postdoctoral Research Fellows to work on modeling and simulation of physical properties of materials.

Candidates will perform research on modeling and computer simulation of metallic and ceramic materials. The work is aimed at improving the fundamental understanding of mechanical and thermodynamic properties of material interfaces. The methodology includes large-scale molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations with classical interatomic potentials. It may also involve developing new interatomic potentials in the traditional or machine-learning formats.

The position is available for Spring 2023 for 2 years with funding available for additional time dependent on performance.

Required Qualifications:

  • PhD in Physics, Materials Science, or related field;
  • A successful applicant is expected to have a relevant theoretical background, especially in thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, and experience in atomistic computer simulations; and
  • Experience working in UNIX/Linux high-performance computing environments is required.

Tip: To strengthen your application consider posting a video-summary of your most exciting research.
