[lammps-users] Postdoc position at RWTH Aachen University

The Group of Computational Materials Engineering (CME) at RWTH Aachen University is inviting applications for a postdoc position available within the project "Numerical supported development of raw materials and suspensions in a steady held production process of sanitary ware" of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in Germany. Are you interested in developing your scientific skills within industry and government supported projects towards industrially relevant questions? Do you want to stay flexible whether to continue your career in industry or in academia?

In this case we offer you an interesting environment in the field of computer aided materials design implemented in a top-level research framework. We are a dynamic team of multidisciplinary scientists and staff members. In our scientific work we cover the whole range from the basic concepts of physical modelling, implementation via enhanced methods of scientific supercomputing to industrially relevant questions of simulation based materials design. This involves developing, implementing and applying models at different scales, such as ab-initio, molecular, phase-field and FEM models.

RWTH Aachen University wants to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. RWTH Aachen University is committed to employing more disabled individuals and especially encourages them to apply.

Applicants must hold a doctorate and have the documented ability to carry out novel research. They should have gained fundamental experience in modelling and simulation or from related fields in mathematics, materials science, physics/chemistry/biology or mechanical resp. construction engineering. Candidates with an outstanding research record in the described fields are welcome. We especially encourage young scientists who just recently have accomplished their PhD to apply.

Our offer
1.) A position as a postdoc (TVL 13 salary)
2.) Training in leadership qualities in scientific groups
3.) The possibility of qualifying for an academic career as professor
