Postdoctoral Research Associate at University of Pennsylvania :: Modeling of nanomaterials and soft materialsSubmitted by Dibakar Datta on Fri, 2013-03-01 12:52.
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.
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.

simulations, and writing papers and proposals. The ideal candidate will
have a PhD in physics, chemical engineering, or mechanical engineering with
experience in molecular dynamics simulations. Strong writing skills are
mandatory. The appointment is for one year, starting as soon as
possible. The research will be performed at Northwestern University,
The Cluster of Excellence ‘Engineering of Advanced Materials’ of the Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg is inviting applications for doctoral students and postdocs in the area of Computational Materials Science to join the institute for general materials properties, the computer chemistry center and/or the chair of theoretical chemistry.
September 4-6, 2013 Frankfurt am Main, Germany
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.
After many publications and lecture notes, Prof. Ian Murdoch has finally organized much of that material in the form of a book.
I am very hopeful that like Prof. Murdoch's lectures, this monograph will also help the readers to develop a better understanding of the physical aspects of mechanics. It will be a valuable addition to the researchers' personal collection.

A molecular dynamics study of the thermal conductivity of graphene nanoribbons containing dispersed Stone–Thrower–Wales defectsSubmitted by Jingjie Yeo on Sat, 2012-07-14 21:46.
A postdoctoral associate position is available at the Computational Nanodynamics Group at Northwestern University. This research project focuses broadly on atomistic and multi-scale modeling and simulation of the mechanics and dynamics of organic, biological and bioinspired nanomaterials. The post-doctoral researcher will have the opportunity to investigate diverse issues related to mechanics and transport phenomena in emerging nanostructured materials. Specific domains of focus include self-assembling biomolecular materials, multifunctional structural materials, and hybrid organic-inorganic interfaces in polymer nanocomposites.
I want to simulate polymer system that have pi-pi interaction between
chains and reinforcements. I know there is no implemention of pi-pi
interaction in lammps.
So, Is there another method to consider pi-pi interaction in lammps? or
I can't simulate these system by lammps.
