The Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute (SBQMI) at the University of British Columbia is seeking PhD-level scientific researchers with expertise and a broad vision on atomic scale modeling and simulation of materials. This multi-year position as a Research Associate will strengthen the Institute's capacity in computational materials physics, form a close link with experiments and ultimately aid the design of novel functional materials and devices.
The successful candidate will bring experience in modern computational techniques for exploring the structure and dynamics of complex materials. They will contribute deep expertise in high-performance computing, proficiency in atomistic modeling with ab-initio and/or classical methods, and statistical techniques for non-equilibrium phenomena. Moreover, they will support the development and deployment of new algorithms such as quantum/classical couplings or other hybrid simulation techniques. Topical focus areas include growth of quantum materials, morphology and defects at interfaces, 1D and 2D materials, nanoscale transport phenomena, supramolecular materials and self-assembly. The Research Associate will support SBQMI's team of multi-disciplinary Principal Investigators in their research and will also develop an independent research program, contribute to writing and publishing articles in top-tier journals, and mentor SBQMI students and postdocs who wish to develop advanced numerical skills.
SBQMI is a world-leading venture into research of systems and phenomena involving quantum materials. We believe in the power of collaboration to fuel the search for creative solutions and, in addition to building a strong interdisciplinary team of experimentalists and theorists from physics, chemistry and engineering, have established strong partnerships with TRIUMF, the Canadian Light Source, the Max Planck Society, and many other world leading institutions.
The successful candidate will thrive in our collegial culture and will bring the following qualifications to the role:
- PhD in Physics or a related discipline, specializing in computational materials physics
- Experience with some atomistic simulation techniques such as ab-initio/density functional theory, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo methods, advanced sampling techniques.
- Several years of postdoctoral or equivalent experience
- Strong publication record in the field
- Ability to pursue an independent research program aligned with SBQMI interests
- Good communication and collaboration skills
- Experience with mentoring students is strongly desired
To Apply: send your CV, a statement of research interests, and a covering letter to www.facultycareers.ubc.ca/
Please also arrange for 3 confidential recommendation letters to be emailed directly to the SBQMI Human Resources Manager at email@example.com .
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. UBC offers a competitive benefits package including extended medical, dental, life insurance, and pension.
