Research activities will be focused in the development an application of atomistic strategies (ab initio, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, cluster expansion, etc.) to simulate phase diagrams, solid state transformations and dislocation/defect interactions in metallic alloys.
Candidates should hold PhD in Computational Materials Science, Physics, Materials Science (or related discipline) with excellent academic credentials and a strong commitment to develop an academic career in an international and multidisciplinary environment. Fluent English (oral and written) is required. Previous experience in either ab initio, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, cluster expansion, transition state theory is required.
