Two PostDoc Positions in DFT and effective Hamiltonian modeling of functional materials
University of Arkansas Announcement of Two Postdoctoral Positions (Research Associate) in the Computational Condensed Matter Physics (CCMP) group to work with Prof. Laurent Bellaiche.
- Qualifications: Ph.D in Physics, Materials Science, or a related field. Experience in numerical simulations and condensed matter is required. Experience in first-principles, Monte-Carlo, and/or Molecular Dynamics techniques is highly desirable.
- Research goals: modeling, understanding, and designing ferroelectrics, multiferroics, magnetic systems, and multifunctional materials. Particular topics of interest are: topological defects, light-matter interactions, out-of-equilibrium phenomena, and/or conversion between different forms of energy. Collaborations with experimental research groups and other theoretical/computational research groups are also expected, in order to gain a deep understanding of such complex materials.
- Period of Employment: The position is for one year, renewable upon mutual agreement to a second year and then a third year. The preferential starting date is around July 01, 2022. However, earlier or later starting dates may also be possible.
- Location: University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Arkansas (USA). Fayetteville has been consistently ranked by national magazines among the top places to live in the U.S.
- Application: Interested candidates should send via e-mail (in a pdf format, if possible) (1) a curriculum vitae, (2) list of publications and (3) the names and addresses of at least three references to:
Laurent Bellaiche, Department of Physics, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR 72701; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

PhD or Post-doc position on experimental studies of antiferroelectric phase transitions
University of Luxembourg We currently have the possibility to hire a post-doc or PhD student for experimental studies of antiferroelectric transitions, mostly by various solid state spectroscopy techniques (Raman, infrared, dielectric, etc.). Please reach out to me for more details in case you're interested or know a potential candidate.
Two PhD positions and one postdoc position on shapeable magnetoelectronics from first-principles
UCLouvain & ULiege Outstanding highly-motivated candidates are sought to work at the UCLouvain (Louvain-la-neuve, Belgium) in collaboration with ULiège (Liège, Belgium) on the “SHAPE-ME” project, focusing on the first-principles elastoelectrical control of magnetic functionalities, especially for curved vdWaals heterostructures. New functionalities will be developed in the ABINIT (www.abinit.org) software application, related to the treatment of the responses to several types of perturbations (magnetic, electric, elastic) for 3D and 2D systems, and their usage in the second-principles MULTIBINIT software application. Such simulation tool will permit to explore and predict new artificial materials by design in 2D heterostructures.
Postdoc / PhD candidates should hold a PhD / MSc degree in Physics, Chemistry, or Materials Science (or similar). Demonstrated coding experience and interest is required (FORTRAN is mandatory for the postdoc candidate, Python or C can be sufficient for the PhD candidate). Good knowledge of English, both written and oral, is compulsory.

Two Postdoc Positions in Experimental Investigation of Electromechanical Materials
SPyMS lab, CentraleSupelec We are looking for two postdocs to create electromechanical materials that are not piezoelectrics. These projects target specific applications of industrial interest but are of fundamental nature. We are looking for young scientists with experience in synthesis and/or structures and properties characterisation of electromechanical materials (including piezoelectrics). Equal opportunity employer. No requirement regarding your command of the French language. Do not hesitate to contact me for more information.
Permanent position - ABINIT/MULTIBINIT platform - ULiège (Belgium)
University of Liège A permanent position of computational scientist attached to the ABINIT-MULTIBINIT software platform for the first-principles-based modelling of material properties is open at the University of Liège.
Postdoctoral Research Associate - Theory and Inverse Design of Layered Ferroics
Oak Ridge National Laboratory We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate who will support the Nanomaterials Theory Group in the Center for Nanophase Materials Science Division (CNMSD), Physical Sciences Directorate (PSD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The Postdoctoral Research Associate will support research directed towards a rigorous theoretical understanding of layered ferroic materials and discovery of such new 2D materials for targeted applications. These materials show a wide range of coupled properties, such as magnetism, ferroelectricity, topological protection, among others, that vary as we go to the quantum limit, and can be manipulated by stacking and/or applying external fields for next generation computing applications. The goal is to combine scalable density functional theory (DFT) approaches (such as real-space DFT, DFTB) and beyond-DFT approaches for solids (such as GW, DMFT, QMC), with advanced AI/ML algorithms, to both reveal the nature of these couplings, and discover improved materials with emergent properties, particularly as we reach the quantum limit. A key challenge is to predict materials with high degree of metastability, which have particular promise for computing and energy technologies.
