Postdoc at the University of Lyon (France) in atomistic modeling of crystalline plasticity

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the Institut Lumière Matière of the University of Lyon in France to simulate by MD in controlled geometries the interactions between dislocations and general "dirty" grain boundaries. This work is part of an EU project on fatigue deformation involving France, Germany and Belgium.

post-doc in dislocation modeling

In the context of a European project involving partners in France, Germany and Belgium, we are seeking a motivated post-doc to implement a saddle-point search method in a discrete dislocation dynamics code to study thermally-activated dislocation processes, such as cross-slip, in complex microstructures. The start date is October 2014 and the post-doc will be based in Lyon (Institut Lumière Matière) but with strong interactions with the Laboratoire d'Etude des Microstructures, CNRS/ONERA near Paris.

Post-Doc in Grenoble, France: Atomic-scale twinning in HCP metals

A postdoctoral position is available in the material science laboratory (SIMAP) of INP Grenoble, France, in David Rodney’s group in collaboration with Laurent Capolungo from Georgia Tech Lorraine, with primary focus on the atomic-scale study of twinning in HCP metals. We are looking for a strongly motivated candidate to apply saddle-point search methods, including the Nudged Elastic Band method and the Activation Relaxation Technique, to study the nucleation and propagation of primary and secondary twins during the plastic deformation of HCP metals.
