Within the framework of an industrial collaboration, we are looking for a post-doc to work on a project studying polymer crystallization with molecular dynamics simulations. The project is fundamentally oriented and inspired by industrial samples. The goal is to establish insight into structure-property relationships that can eventually help to optimize products. Therefore, frequent meetings and reports to the industrial partner is a key component accompanying the scientific research. At the same time, the project allows to contribute to the fascinating field of polymer crystallization.
The position is proposed for one year with an option of renewal.
-perform molecular dynamics simulations with LAMMPS
-creation of start configurations (C,C++,Python)
-analyse results: programming is needed to adapt the existing tools of the group to the systems of the project
-interpretation of results and writing of scientific publications
-interaction with the industrial partner
Doctorate in theoretical/computational physics or computational chemistry.
Good knowledge of statistical physics, polymer physics, molecular simulation and programming. Experience with LAMMPS is helpful but not a must.
Proficiency in english is mandatory.
The theory and simulation group of Institut Charles Sadron has a long standing experience in polymer physics and simulation. An engineer in scientific computation will assist the project.
