A one-year postdoctoral position with possible extension up to three years is available in the Materials Modeling & Microscopy group of Rohan Mishra at Washington University in St. Louis, beginning August 2018. The successful candidate will perform computational research combining density-functional theory (DFT) calculations and materials informatics to design multi-principal element alloys for structural applications and double perovskite-based semiconductors. Both the projects involve a strong integration with synthesis and characterization performed by collaborators at Washington University.

Applicants must have a recent Ph.D. in Materials Science, Physics, or a related field with expertise in applying DFT to develop structure-property correlations. Candidates with strong programing skills (using either Python, Fortran, or C/C++) and experience in using data mining and machine-learning tools will be preferred.

A second research thrust within our group involves atomic scale characterization of materials using aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy and combining them with DFT calculations. The successful candidate is also expected to be involved in this thrust. Therefore, prior research experience in modeling nanostructures with surfaces-interfaces or defects will be an asset.

Interested candidates are encouraged to apply by emailing a single file containing: (1) a cover letter (not more than one-page) with a summary of accomplishments and future research interests; (2) CV (with a list of all publications); and (3) names of at least two references to [email protected].
