2 Post-Doc Positions in Computational Materials Science

Within the framework of the Cluster of Excellence Engineering of Advanced Materials at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg the materials modeling group of the Institute for General Material Properties is inviting applications for postdocs in the field of atomistic simulations of mechanical properties.  The research projects will focus on the role of interfaces on the plastic deformation and fracture of nanostructured materials.

Symposium on Atomistic and Mesoscale Aspects of Fracture and Fatigue


I would like to point you to the 

Mini symposium at the 14th International Conference on Fracture Rhodes, June 18-23 2017

on Atomistic and Mesoscale Aspects of Fracture and Fatigue

Chair: Prof. Peter Gumbsch, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology & Fraunhofer IWM, Germany

Co-chair: Dr Gianpietro Moras, Fraunhofer IWM, Germany

Atom probe informed atomistic simulations reveal the importance of local interface curvature

The interaction of dislocations with precipitates is an essential strengthening mechanism in metals, as exemplified by the superior high-temperature strength of Ni-base superalloys. Here we use atomistic simulation samples generated from atom probe tomography data of a single crystal superalloy to study the interactions of matrix dislocations with a gamma' precipitate in molecular dynamics simulations.

Curvature matters!

In a recent article in Acta Materialia ("Atom probe informed simulations of dislocation-precipitate interactions reveal the importance of local interface curvature" ) we showed how the interface curvature influences dislocation - precipitate interactions.

PhD Position in Atomistic Simulations / Computational Nanomechanics

The Institute for General Material Properties of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) is seeking an outstanding PhD candidate to participate in a research-training group on in-situ microscopy on nanoscale objects.

MSc position in computational materials science at the University of Manitoba

Two Masters' positions are now available for the winter semester (starting in January), 2013 on computational materials sciene in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the Unviersity of Manitoba. The potential student(s) will work on the thermostability and mechanical properties in nanocrystalline materials and crystalline/amorphous composites. Students with strong interests in atomistic simulations (MD, ab inito, monte carlo, etc.) and good programming skills (C, Fortran, etc.) are encouraged to apply. Intrested students please send a CV and inquires to Prof.
