The Atomistic Modelling and Computational Simulations group at CIC energiGUNE is searching for a Postdoctoral researcher to be involved in an Industrial project.
Screening fast ion conductors by combining nano informatics with quantum-mechanical and bond valence method simulations.
We are searching for a highly motivated and independent researcher with a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or other related topics;
The candidate shall possess a strong background (at least two years of previous experience as demonstrated, for instance, by first author publications) in Solid-State Physics/Chemistry and Quantum Chemistry, in particular, molecular quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and molecular simulation methods applied to bulk inorganic solids or polymers;
Good expertise in density functional theory electronic structure calculations with extensive experience with codes such as VASP, FHI-aims, or CASTEP is required;
Experience with machine learning algorithms and/or network science is strongly preferred. And experience in writing computer code (e.g., Python) and shell scripts is an asset;
The candidate should also be able to work independently and as part of a team, as well as have very good English skills;
Therefore, the successful candidate must be able to effectively communicate with a variety of audiences.
