Post-Doc Position: Multiscale Simulations of Pattern Formation in Mixed Crystals

The chair of Materials and Process Simulation at the University of Bayreuth is offering a postdoc position in the field of multiscale simulations of advanced materials. In the project, a combination of classical Monte Carlo simulations and ab initio calculations is used for investigating the formation of domains in half-Heusler materials. The investigations are of great relevance for the development of new thermoelectric materials. The project is funded within the framework of the focus program SPP 1386 “Nanostructured Thermoelectrics” by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft).

Are you interested in broadening your scientific knowledge by supporting the development of novel alternative energy sources with the help of state-of-the-art multiscale simulation techniques? Have you completed your masters/diploma degree and your PhD (doctoral degree) with above-average results?

In this case, we offer you a stimulating environment in the field of computer aided materials design, implemented in a top-level research framework. We are a dynamic, international team of multidisciplinary scientists, engaged in numerous science and industrial cooperations. In our scientific work, we cover the whole spectrum from basic concepts of physical modeling over implementation with enhanced supercomputing techniques to industrially relevant questions of simulation-based material design. This involves developing, implementing, and applying models at different scales, such as ab initio, molecular, phase-field, and FEM models.

Applicants must hold a doctor/PhD degree and have the documented ability to carry out novel research projects. They should have gained fundamental experience in modeling and simulation in physics, chemistry, mathematics, or material science. We appreciate candidates with good skills in, at least, one of the following topics: Monte Carlo simulations, ab initio density functional theory or statistical physics. We especially encourage applications
of young scientists who just recently accomplished their PhD.

We offer:

A postdoc position (TV-L E13)

The University of Bayreuth supports women in science and especially encourages them to apply. Handicapped applicants will be preferred if they are equally qualified.

Please submit your application, as soon as possible, to:

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Heike Emmerich
