Post-Doc / PhD Position in Computational Materials Science

The Institute for General Material Properties of the University Erlangen-Nürnberg
is seeking outstanding candidates for a collaborative research project
(SFB/Transregio 103) on high-temperature deformation of super alloys.

The aim of this four-year project is to provide the scientific
foundation for a new generation of single-crystalline super alloys.
For this purpose, atomistic simulations will be carried out to
determine the structure and properties of the relevant defects (dislocations,
stacking faults, heterophase boundaries) and to study the interaction between
these defects. The atomistic simulations will be part of a multiscale modeling
approach in close collaboration with experimental groups.

The successful candidate will hold a degree in Materials Science,
Physics or Mechanical Engineering and have a solid background in physical
metallurgy and mechanical behavior of materials. Experience with numerical
simulations (preferably Molecular Dynamics) and scientific programming is
required. In addition, experience in the simulation of crystal defects on the
atomistic scale is highly desirable. 
Excellent oral and written communication skills and the ability to work
well in a dynamic and collaborative research environment are essential.

The department of materials science and engineering of the
Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg is the largest in Germany. It
is located in the metropolitan area of Nuremberg (3.5 Mio inhabitants), in the
northern part of Bavaria. The region is famous for its high-tech industry,
hiking and rock-climbing as well as for the world’s highest density of

Applicants are asked to submit their curriculum vitae, a list of
publications and names and contact information of two references to:
