Post-Doc: Multiscale Simulations of Domain Structures in Thermoelectric Materials

Post-Doc Position:

Multiscale Simulations of Domain Structures in Thermoelectric Materials


The chair of Materials and Process Simulation at the University of Bayreuth (Germany) is nviting applicants for a post-doc position. In the project, classical Monte Carlo simulations are used to investigate and optimize the domain formation in multi-component materials. The simulations are based on a Hamiltonian that is derived from ab initio calculations. The multiscale method is used to study structure formation in half-Heusler thermoelectric, anovel alternative energy source. The research will be carried out in close collaboration with experimental groups. The systematic study of structure formation phenomena will be performed with the help of state-of-the-art multiscale simulation techniques.

We offer a stimulating environment in the field of computer aided materials design, implemented in a top-level research framework. We are a dynamic, international team of multidisciplinary scientists, engaged in numerous science and industrial cooperations. In our scientific work, we cover the whole spectrum from basic concepts of physical modeling over implementation with enhanced supercomputing techniques to industrially relevant questions of simulation-based material design. This involves developing, implementing, and applying models at different scales, such as ab initio, molecular, phase-field, and FEM models.


Applicants must hold a doctor/PhD degree and have the documented ability to carry out novel research projects. They should have gained fundamental experience in modeling and simulation in physics, chemistry, mathematics, or material science. Furthermore, they should have good skills in, at least, one of the topics: Monte Carlo simulations, ab initio calculations or statistical physics. We especially encourage applications of young scientists who just recently accomplished their PhD.

We offer:
A postdoc position (TV-L E13)

The University of Bayreuth supports women in science and especially encourages them to apply. Handicapped applicants will be preferred if they are equally qualified.

Please submit your application to:
