Subject: 21.02.05 PhD position in computational materials science
A PhD position is available immediately in the group of theory and 
simulation of condensed matter for a project on Li-ion batteries 
at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (Lincoln, USA).
The research requires application of first-principles based atomistic 
simulations through high-performance computing to understand and design 
materials for sustainable energy applications. The key focus is placed 
on the development of fundamental understanding of molecular-scale 
mechanisms underlying properties of lithium-ion batteries.    

The position requires most of the following:
	Strong background in solid-state physics, physical chemistry, 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

The position requires the results from TOEFL (or IELTS) testing.
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:
