Three year OCE Postdoctoral Fellowship in computational nanotechnology

Applications are invited for a three year OCE Postdoctoral Fellowship in computational nanotechnology, working with scientists from the Virtual Nanoscience Laboratory in the CSIRO Materials Science and Engineering division at Clayton, in Australia. The successful applicant will work be involved in predicting the material properties for optimal nanodiamond-based drug delivery systems, in collaboration with a multi-national interdisciplinary team.

Postdoctoral position at MIT on inverse problems in multiscale materials modeling

One postdoctoral position is currently available for individuals with a strong background in materials simulations—preferably atomistic methods—to develop approaches for solving inverse problems in multiscale materials modeling (i.e. determining what atomic-level structures and compositions yield desired macroscale properties, rather than predicting macroscale properties given atomic-level information). These methods will be applied to the design of radiation resistant nanocomposites in collaboration with an Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) at Los Alamos NL.
