Postdoctoral Research Associate at University of Pennsylvania :: Modeling of nanomaterials and soft materials

 A postdoctoral position with primary focus on molecular dynamics simulations is available immediately at Shenoy Research Group  under the direction of Prof. Vivek B. Shenoy .  We are looking for a strongly motivated candidate to work on modeling of nanomaterials and soft materials. The ideal candidate will have a background in materials science/computational physics with expertise in molecular dynamics simulations with LAMMPS or other packages.  This individual will have the opportunity to be directly involved in complimentary experimental investigations, both at Penn and our collaborators in industry.

Postdoctoral Scholar - Atomistic Simulation of Nanocrystalline Materials

A postdoctoral scholar position is currently available in the Nanoscale Mechanics and Materials Laboratory (NNML) at the University of California, Irvine.  We are seeking an individual with a strong background in atomistic simulation of materials.  The research project will focus on understanding structural evolution and failure processes in nanocrystalline materials, as well as damage and crack initiation at grain boundaries. A Ph.D. in Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, or a related field is required.  Experience with parallel molecular dynamics codes (e.g., LAMMPS) is preferred, but capable and enthusiastic applicants with other computational backgrounds will also be considered.

Objectives and topics:
of nanoengineering technologies and creation of nanomaterials opened
new perspectives for a number of areas of industry and everyday life.
These materials demonstrate increased strength, toughness,
biocompatibility, and can ensure higher service properties, reliability
and lifetime of devices and systems.

Post doctoral position available--nanophotonics

At the nanobiophysics laboratory we are looking for a post doc to participate on an experimental work regarding the tuning of fluorescence in nanoparticles under the effect of pressure. We believe that it is the strain rather the pressure that is causing the shift in the emission. We are also investigating this effect using numerical models. While we are looking for an experimentalist urgently we will be looking for a theoretician/numerical guy in a year. All welcome if you have the right attitude and motivation.

The candidate, a PhD in physics or physical-chemistry, materials science, should have a good grasp on solid state physics and spectroscopy. 


The laboratory is located at KAUST.

Mechanics of in-surface buckling of one dimensional nanomaterials on elastomeric substrates

In this recently published paper on Nanotechnology, we studied the in-surface buckling mechanics of one dimensional nanomaterials on elastomeric substrates.  Simple analytical solutions are obtained for buckling wavelength and amplitude, which can be easily applied to the in-surface buckling of different nanomaterials, such as nanowires and nanotubes.  It is shown that in-surface buckling of nanomaterials has lower energy than out-of-surface buckling, which explains the experimental observance of in-surface buckling of silicon nanowires.  However, single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) are reported to buckle out-of-surface on PDMS substr
