Post-Doc Positions in Computational Materials / Computational Chemistry at The University of Texas at Arlington

We are seeking two post-doctoral researchers to pursue computational studies of polymer-derived high-temperature ceramics, which exhibit an unusual structure at the nano-scale. Projects involve quantum and classical molecular dynamics simulations, modeling structure formation and fracture mechanics, solid state and gas-solid thermodynamic processes, and oxidation behavior.

Applicants with a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, or Materials Science should have a strong record in solid-state materials simulation and interest in High-Performance Computing. Existing first principles electronic structure and empirical molecular dynamics simulations will be used in combination with continuum mechanics. Experience in some of these techniques, in multi-scale modeling, and in code development for analysis is required.

One activity is supported within the new National Center for Hypersonic Materials and Structures, funded by NASA and AFOSR. The NSF sponsors a second project. Computer resources will be allocated at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) and the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Division. Successful candidates will be expected to work in a collegial environment, with strong interactions with colleagues working in the different disciplines necessary to the programs’ goals. Occasional collocation of fellows to other sites to maintain strong interactions will be encouraged and may be required.

The positions are available immediately and initially for one year, with extension possible based on mutual agreement. For further information, please contact Dr. Peter Kroll ( Potential applicants should send a 1-2 page CV, including contact information of 2-3 references to start the application process.
