Subject: 16.11.16 Postdoctoral Researcher - Center for Nanoscale Materials
The Nanoscience and Technology Division/Center for Nanoscale Materials(CNM) at Argonne National Laboratory has an available postdoctoral position within the Theory and Modeling group Group, funded through the Laboratory Directed Research and Development program. The position is funded for one year with the possibility of an extension (subject to available funding and performance evaluation). You will carry out research in the area of computational modeling of reactive interfaces at atomic length scales (primarily large-scale reactive molecular dynamics) with particular focus on large area synthesis of low-dimensional materials (traditional 2D and nanoparticle membranes), and oxide based memristors for use in novel neuromorphic computing devices. Specifically, the research will employ multi-million atom reactive molecular dynamics(RMD) simulations to gain fundamental understanding of reaction pathways, computationally evaluate feasibility of various new synthesis procedures, dynamical evolution of metal/metal oxide interfaces, and structural/mechanical changes that occur in the oxide upon application of external fields. We expect you to have: A PhD in chemistry, computational materials science, chemical engineering, or a related field is required. A strong background in large-scale reactive molecular dynamics, kinetic Monte-Carlo, transition state theory, high-throughput calculations, development of new reactive force fields, numerical optimization, programming, and high performance computing is preferred. Additional expertise in electronic structure calculations, force field parameterization, machine-learning methods, genetic algorithms, and big data analytics is beneficial. The project involves strong ties with experimental groups; so a proven track record of collaborations with synthesis (Chemical Vapor Deposition, Molecular Beam Epitaxy) and characterization groups will be advantageous.
