The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering ( at the New Jersey Institute of Technology ( has an opening for a fully funded Ph.D. position. The position will start in Fall 2023/Spring 2024. Interested candidates should apply as soon as possible. Email:

Research Description:  The selected student will primarily work on Atomistic/Molecular Modeling and Machine Learning. He/she will be involved in different projects such as:

Modeling of Energy Systems: Nanomaterials for Energy Storage and Conversion, e.g., Lithium-ion Battery.

Mechanics and electronic properties of nanomaterials: Different aspects of mechanics (e.g., Fracture, Friction) and electronics of various nanomaterials and their heterostructures: Graphene, Transition Metal Dichalcogenide (TMDC), MXenes, 2D/3D composites, etc.

The candidate will have the opportunity to collaborate with experimentalists at NJIT and other institutions.

Candidate’s background:

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

Background in Machine Learning (ML), Molecular Dynamics (MD), Density Functional Theory (DFT) is preferred - but not essential. However, the candidate should be strongly interested in learning ML, MD, and DFT. 

Funding: The position is fully funded.

Application: The interested candidates should email Dr. Dibakar Datta with CV. Email address: dibakar.datta@njit.eduWeb:
