Open Postdoc & PhD positions in Computational Materials Science

Erik Bitzek's picture

In the next months, we have a couple of openings for Postdoctoral fellows and PhD students in Computational Materials Science. If you are interested and at the 2017 MRS Fall Meeting in Boston (Nov 25th - Dec. 2nd) , hit me up!

The projects deal with atomistic simulations regarding the mechanical properties of materials, interfaces and cracks. Applicants should hold a degree in Materials Science, Physics or Mechanical Engineering and have a solid background in physical metallurgy and mechanical behavior of materials and fracture mechanics. Candidates for postdoctoral positions furthermore have to have a provent track record in atomic scale simulation of crystal defects and in scientific high-performance computing and software development. Excellent oral and written communication skills and the ability to work well in a dynamic and collaborative research environment are essential. The ability to communicate in German is highly desirable but not required.

The Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg is home to Germany’s largest and oldest Materials Science and Engineering Department and houses the Center of Excellence in Engineering of Advanced Materials (EAM). It is located in the metropolitan area of Nuremberg (3.5 Mio inhabitants), in the northern part of Bavaria. The Department seeks to increase the number of female research and teaching staff and therefore especially encourages qualified women to apply. According to German law, disabled applicants with an equivalent high qualification will be given preference.

Applicants are asked to submit their curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a concise summary of current and proposed research activities, and names and contact information of two references to:
