[lammps-users] One fully-funded PhD position in computational nanomaterials at the University of Vermont

Dear LAMMPS community members**,**

One fully-funded Ph.D. position is now available immediately in the area of computational nanomaterials in the group of Dr. Jihong Ma (https://sites.google.com/umn.edu/jihong-ma-group/home?authuser=0) at the University of Vermont.

The successful candidate will work together with Prof. Jihong Ma on the dynamics of nanomaterials via molecular dynamics simulations and density functional theory. The ideal candidate must have a solid background in physics and mathematics and must present a strong motivation for scientific research. Students with degrees in physics, materials science, chemistry, mechanics, engineering, and mathematics are encouraged to apply. Research experience with DFT, DFTB, MD, and/or MM and a good publication record (journal articles) are desired. Applicants must have earned an MS degree and must meet minimum GPA requirements for Ph.D. admission.

Interested candidates should send a CV with a publication list, a short description of research interests, course transcripts, and names of three references from previous research positions, by email to Jihong[dot]Ma[at]uvm[dot]edu. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until a suitable candidate is identified.

  • Only selected candidates will be contacted. Applicants who do not meet the minimum requirements or with incomplete application will not be considered.
