Dibakar Datta's picture


Location : The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering ( at the New Jersey Institute of Technology ( NJIT is located at Newark ( near New York City and Philadelphia ). 

Start Date: The position will start in Fall 2020. 

Research Description: Selected student will primarily work on Atomistic and Molecular Mechanics. 

 - Modeling of Energy Systems: Molecular Dynamics and Density Functional Theory simulation of energy systems e.g. Lithium-ion Battery, Nanomaterials/Nanoparticle for Energy Storage and Conversion.

 - Mechanics of Nanomaterials: Different aspects of Mechanics (e.g. Fracture, Friction) of various nanomaterials: Graphene and its derivatives, Molybdenum Disulfides, and different other 2D nanomaterials and Transition Metal Dichalcogenide (TMDC).

Candidate’s background : 

 - The position requires an undergraduate/master degree or equivalent within Nanotechnology, Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry, Civil/Mechanical/Aerospace/Chemical Engineering.

 - Background in Molecular Dynamics (MD) Simulation, Density Functional Theory (DFT) is preferred – but not essential. Candidate should have a strong interest in learning MD, DFT and related tools (e.g. LAMMPS, VASP).

Funding: The position is fully funded. 

Application: Interested candidates should send an email with detail CV to Dr. Dibakar Datta (Email address: ).
