Subject: 19.05.29 PhD position in computational materials science
Description: a PhD position is available in the group of theory and simulation of condensed matter 
at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (Lincoln, USA).

Fields: theoretical/computational chemical physics and materials science, 
statistical mechanics and thermodynamics, high-performance computing

The research requires application of first-principles based atomistic simulations through high-performance computing to understand materials properties for energy storage applications. 
The key focus is placed on the development of fundamental understanding of molecular-scale mechanisms aiming to bridge scales and assist in interpreting and guiding experiments.    

The position requires most of the following:
	Strong background in solid-state physics, quantum mechanics, molecular dynamics
	Demonstrated record of research productivity
	Familiarity with high-performance computing
	Experience in using major quantum-chemical/solid-state physics simulation packages (VASP, Quantum ESPRESSO, Abinit, CASTEP, etc.)
	Experience in programming/scripting in Linux/Unix environment is a plus
	Excellent oral and written communication skills
To apply, e-mail cover letter, current resume with a complete list of your publications and the names and contact information of two references to:
