Postdoctoral position in Computational Modeling at Northwestern University

Horacio Espinosa's picture

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the area of computational modeling in the group of Professor Horacio D. Espinosa at Northwestern University. The candidate will participate in a vibrant interdisciplinary research group and will be involved in projects addressing modeling to understand load-transfer mechanisms in hierarchical carbon-based nanostructures, as well as modeling of nanowires to understand failure modes and size effects. In our research group, we pursue a combined experimental-computational approach; therefore, the candidate will be working in close collaboration with experimentalists to facilitate the understanding of experimental findings.


1. A Ph.D. in Physics, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, or related field.

2. Working experience in atomistic modeling and high-performance computing, including with compiling and running scalable MD/QM code on high end parallel machines.

3. Strong verbal and written communication skills.

Interested candidates should email a CV (including list of publications and journal impact factors), cover letter describing research experience and interests, and the names and email addresses of two references to Professor Horacio D. Espinosa at

Northwestern University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action educator and employer.
