Post-doctoral Position in Materials Theory at No ... (No replies)

2 weeks ago
rondo 2 weeks ago

Term and Location: A one-year postdoctoral position with extension up to two years is open in the Materials Theory & Design Group of James Rondinelli at Northwestern University (Evanston, IL) beginning September 1, 2018. This position is supported fully or partially by external funds; therefore, the continuation of employment is contingent upon receipt of those external funds.

Description and Duties: Work will focus on transport physics in transition metal compounds, especially moderately correlated systems. A particular emphasis is on using first-principles and machine-learning (ML) or artificial intelligence (AI) methods to understand conductivity in these materials.

Experience in density functional theory-based techniques or many-body (beyond-DFT) approaches, and prior demonstrated experience in machine learning and code development is required. The candidate should possess excellent communication, writing, and organization skills, be a self-starter, and be able to work independently, supervise students, participate creatively in refining program directions, and collaborate with experimentalists.

Presentations at national/international meetings and publication of scientific results in high profile peer-reviewed journals are expected. The candidate will also have ample opportunities to develop his or her own independent research in a variety of technologically important materials systems and applications.

How to Apply: Applications should include a CV, contact information of at least two individuals, and an estimated availability date. In addition, please provide a one-page (max) narrative description (not list) as a writing sample of past accomplishments and future research interests. The application should be submitted as a single file PDF-document. Materials should be sent to Prof. Rondinelli at [email protected] with the subject line “18-ML Postdoctoral Position”.

Deadline: July 15, 2018
