cdeng's picture

We currently have one opening for postdoc position at the Unviersity of Manitoba, Canada in the area of atomistic simulations of the electronic structure and physical properties of metallic systems. The position will investigate the correlation between the electronic structures and the physical properties (e.g., thermodynamics, corrosion/wear, and plasticity, etc.) of metals by using molecular dynamics and density functional theory simulations. 

Supervisor: Dr. Chuang Deng (

Duration: The position is for one year with possibility of extension to a maximum of two years in total. 


1 ) The candidate should hold a Ph.D. degree in Materials Sciences or a related field;

2 ) Have good communication skills (both writing and oral) in English;

3 ) Be familiar with density functional theory and molecular dynamics simulations. 

4 ) Have experiences in the thermodynamics, plasticity, and/or corrosion of metallic systems. 

Application Procedure: 

1 ) Please prepare a personal C.V., 1-2 pages research plan, and related publications (if any) and send 

to Dr. Chuang Deng ( 

2 ) Suitable applicants will be contacted for interview. 

3 ) Further discussion regarding the possible hiring will follow. 

Application Deadline: Until the hiring of a qualified candidate is confirmed.

About Us: The University of Manitoba (U of M or UM) is a public research university in Manitoba, Canada. The university maintains a reputation as a top research-intensive post-secondary educational
