JOB OPENINGS: Scale-Bridging Simulation of Functional Composites

PhD position (3 years) Tuning of functional ferroelectric oxides

As of now, the Emmy-Noether group “Scale-bridging computational design of multifunctional ferroelectric composites” at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Advanced Materials Simulations (ICAMS) offers a PhD position in the project “Tuning of functional ferroelectric oxides: A scale-bridging computational study on defects and inhomogeneities”.

The project is part of an interdisciplinary international collaboration and a research stay in Canada is possible. In addition to the scientific questions, the focus is on application and development of first-principles based methods.

The position is third party funded and does not have any formal teaching duties attached.

Travel expenses for interviews cannot be refunded.

At Ruhr-Universität Bochum, we wish to promote careers of women in areas in which they are underrepresented, and we would therefore like to encourage female candidates to send us their applications. Applications by suitable candidates with severe disabilities and other applicants with equal legal status are likewise most welcome.

Your profile:

  • master or diploma in physics condensed matter/chemistry/materials science or similar
  • experience in modelling of materials on the atomistic and/or microstructure level
  • excellent English skills
  • ability to work independently and in an interdisciplinary team
  • good programming skills in Python and knowledge in C, C++ or Fortran

Interested? Take your chance!

We are looking forward to your applications via a single pdf (cover letter, track record, references) send per e-mail until October 30 2020 to Anna Gruenebohm.
