Post-doc Position in Atomistic Modeling at Rice University

Rouzbeh1's picture

A postdoctoral associate position is available at Rice University in the
area of atomistic and molecular modeling of nanoscale friction and defects in an assembly of
nanoparticles. Computational techniques will be integrated to approaches from statistical
mechanics and physical chemistry to provide quantitative predictions of properties of complex
oxide materials across different time- and length-scales. The research will be carried out at Rice
University's Multiscale Materials Modeling Lab.


A Ph.D. in materials science, chemistry, physics, engineering or a related field is
required. The candidate should have well-developed computational skills, a strong background
and motivation in materials modeling and simulation, preferably experience in the areas of ab-
initio calculations, molecular dynamics simulations and familiar with defects, dislocations and
deformation-based mechanisms. Good written and spoken communication skills are expected.

How to apply:

Please send a CV, three representative publications, and contact information of
three references to Evaluation of candidates will begin immediately and will
continue until the position is filled. For any questions, please contact Dr. Rouzbeh Shahsavari:
