The opportunity to perform a postdoc at a highly ranked university (for early stage researchersafter their PhD)
Guidance by leading scientists
Competitive fellowship, social security, and other benefits
Expected starting of the working contract: 01.10.2021 or by agreement. We look forward to receiving your application until 20th August 2021. In case no suitable candidates are found, we reserve the right to re-open the call.
Candidates should have recently obtained a PhD degree in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or Materials Engineering with outstanding achievements.
Candidates should have a strong modelling and theoretical background in at least one of the following topics: molecular dynamics, phase-field methods, surface science, wetting, metallurgy.
Desirable: programming experience (Python, Matlab, C++, or other coding languages).
Language skills:ENGLISH: Excellent.
Candidates have to be hard working, enthusiastic and intelligent with a strong interest in understanding the fundamentals of materials behavior, as well as its implications for engineering applications. Candidates should also have a talent for conceiving modelling hypothesis and can realize them in a target-oriented manner.
We are searching for 2 researchers in total: 1 researcher on the meso- to microscale modeling and 1 researcher on the nano-scale modeling.
For more information please contact Prof. dr. ir. Nele Moelans, mail: firstname.lastname@example.org (for the position on meso-scale microstructure modeling)or Prof. dr. ir. David Seveno, mail: email@example.com (for the position on nano-scale molecular dynamics modeling)
Applications must contain:
• An up-to-date CV, detailing work experience and research and academic achievements
• A cover letter exposing the candidate motivation for the fellowship
• At least two reference letters from a (former) supervisor, professor or a manager with contact information.
• Scanned copy of the PhD degree which would formally entitle the candidate to embark on a post-doctorate position. If the degree has not been obtained yet, the applicant will have to ensure that the date of graduation will be earlier than the start date of the contract.
• Transcript of records (applicant’s ranking and marks) for both Bachelor degree and Master degree.
• A copy of an identity document.
An English language certificate is desirable.
Any document not originally in English must be provided together with an English translation
Important : You should clearly state what would be your primary field of interest in this project, namely (i) nano-scale molecular dynamics simulations (ii) mesoscale phase-field and convection simulations. Please only send your application to 1 promoter !! We will exchange the information among us. Applications send to more than 1 promoter will not be considered ! A first sele...
