Journal Club for November 2021: Machine Learning Potential for Atomistic Simulation


Wei Gao

Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Texas at San Antonio


In this journal club, we provide a brief summary on the concept, recent progress and tools of machine learning (ML) potential for atomistic materials modelling. We hope that it could benefit to the readers who are new to this filed and plan to develop their own or use others ML potentials. Comments and disscussions are welcomed.

Postdoc in materials atomistic and multiscale modeling

A postdoctoral associate position is available at University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) with Prof. Wei Gao, starting 9/1/2021. The candidate is expected to have a strong background in materials modeling, with at least one of the following skills: density functional theory, molecular dynamics, phase field method and machine learning. The research project will focus broadly on studying the phase transformation and related mechanical behavior in structural and functional materials.

Post-doctoral Research Associate Position in Nanomechanics of Bone

The Mechanics of Biological Materials/Structures Laboratory at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is seeking to fill a Postdoctoral Research Associate position working on a NIH supported research project. In this five-year research project, we intend to elucidate the effect of proteoglycans on the age-related deterioration of bone quality and to develop therapeutic strategies for preventing or deterring such adverse effect.
