Subject: 21.09.04 Computational Materials Science + Machine Learning (University of Pittsburgh, USA)
Two post-doctoral positions are available in the Saidi group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at the 
University of Pittsburgh, starting immediately. The focus of the research is materials modeling 
using atomistic multiscale simulations, machine learning, and high throughput simulations. 
More specifically, you will be part of Professor Wissam A. Said's group, who is working on the 
development and application of machine learning methods to accelerate materials modeling 
based on first-principles methods for materials,  broadly defined. 
For more information about the group, please see

The duration of the appointment can be up to 3 years based on research productivity, performance, 
and mutual agreement. 

A Ph.D. in Materials Science or a related field is required. Proficiency in coding, machine learning, 
density functional theory, and atomistic simulations is advantageous.  The postdoctoral scholar 
will be expected to take a leading role in the use and development of machine learning-based 
methods to accelerate materials design based on atomistic and first-principles methods. 

The postdoc is expected to actively participate in the dissemination of research findings 
through weekly meetings with the PI and other group members, author monthly reports, publish in 
top journals, and aid in the training of graduate and undergraduate students. 

The University of Pittsburgh is ranked 37th in the world's top 100 global universities by 
Newsweek International, and second in the nation for nanoscale research (Small Times, 6(3) 2006). 
The Places Rated Almanac named Pittsburgh recently as "America's Most Livable City."
