PhD and Post-doctoral Associate Positions Available at Rice University

Ph.D and postdoctoral associate positions are available at Rice University in the broad area of atomistic, molecular and multiscale modeling of cement-based materials. The projects include carrying out bottom-up atomistic and microtexture predictive simulations. Computational techniques will be integrated to approaches from statistical mechanics and physical chemistry to provide quantitative predictions of properties of cementitious materials across different time- and length-scales. The research will be carried out at Rice University’s Laboratory for Multiscale
Materials Modeling.

Seeking a postdoctoral candidate with experience in atomistic/molecular simulation for a two-year position. 

Areas of investigation will include:

 

energy deviation in MDS

Any idea why energy deviation between successive steps become a large value during molecular dynamics simulation, when the number of steps is increased?

Im looking for a PhD Position in the area of molecular simulations

   My name is Mario Pinto. I have a bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering (2006) and a masters degree in Computational Science (2008). Since August 2008, I have been working at Computational Research Labs, Pune, India in the Computational Materials Group. My work mostly involves the use of MD, and I use LAMMPS for all simulations.

Postdoc position at MIT: Thermal and mechanical properties of nanocomposites

A postdoctoral associate position at MIT is available immediately,
focused on the analysis and development of multifunctional thermal
management structures, by using theoretical and atomistic multiscale
modeling and simulation. This project specifically involves calculations
of thermal and mechanical properties of graphene based metal- and

The potential for Vanadium in molecular dynamic simulation

One of the most significant factors in molecular dynamic simulatin is to choose the proper potential. Recently, I did some searching jobs on Vanadium (V) potential and finally decided which potential I am going to use. Here is a simple summary:

Molecular dynamic simulation on Projectile

Hi, everyone~

Has anyone done MD simulation about projectile? Like a rigid body penetrating a thin target? I have recently heard that a group in Uni of southern california did such a simulation before. I will be appreciated if someone could afford me some information.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Anybody knows a molecular dynamics software for Windows operative systems?

 

Dear All,

I am looking for a freeware molecular dynamics software working for Windows operative systems.

I have tried LAMMPS, but it seems to me that it works only under UNIX. 

Thank you very much in advance for any information.

Best wishes, Marco Paggi

Combined EAM and Stillinger-Weber potential and Combined EAM and Tersoff Potential

We have combined the EAM and the SW and the TF potentials in one
functional form. This functional form allows the modeling of metal
covalent systems (M-Si,Ge,C,SiC) very efficiently allowing the study of
large systems. The potential iscalled as the "Angular-dependent
Embedded Atom Method".
