Postdoc position at MIT: Thermal and mechanical properties of nanocomposites

Markus J. Buehler's picture

A postdoctoral associate position at MIT is available immediately,
focused on the analysis and development of multifunctional thermal
management structures, by using theoretical and atomistic multiscale
modeling and simulation. This project specifically involves calculations
of thermal and mechanical properties of graphene based metal- and
polymer nanocomposites, with a focus on various aspects such as
interfacial transport properties, tunability, mutability and phonon
engineering. Additional aspects of the project relate to the general
area of mechanical energy transport in biological materials.

A Ph.D. in materials science, chemistry, physics or a related field is
required, and in particular experience with molecular dynamics
simulations. The candidate should have very well-developed computational
skills, a strong background and interest in atomistic, molecular and
multiscale modeling and simulation, preferably experience in the
calculation of transport properties and some expertise in first
principles calculations (Density Functional Theory). Good written and
verbal communication skills and organizational talents are expected. 

Please send a CV, a brief summary of research interests and skills,
three representative publications, and the names, affiliations, phone
numbers, and email addresses of three references to lamm-search@MIT.EDU.
The research will be carried out at MIT’s Laboratory for Atomistic and
Molecular Mechanics. 

Evaluation of candidates will begin immediately and will continue until
the opening is filled. This position is available immediately.

For any questions, please contact Markus Buehler (contact information below).
