We are looking for a theoretician in condensed matter with significant experience in electronic structure calculations and atomistic simulations (e.g. DFT, TD-DFT, ab-initio methods, Monte Carlo sampling, molecular dynamics). Particular expertise in the field of
complex materials (e.g. porous, polyphase or structured materials) is desirable.
The research project will be developed within the department of theory and simulation at CINaM (Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center of Marseille, CNRS/AMU laboratory). It will reinforce the links with the MSE2, the international joint laboratory (CNRS/AMU/MIT) based in Cambridge (USA). The successful candidate will develop multi scale simulation methods and forge strong interactions with the experimental groups in CINaM. In addition, the project may be linked with the development of experimental spectro-microscopy tools for complex materials underway at CINaM.
The successful candidate will also be responsible for a new international course entitled “Multi-scale porous materials for energy and environment” as part of the Masters in Nanoscience and Nanotechnologies. They will also have teaching requirements for physics undergraduates. As a result, proficiency in spoken and written French sufficient to teach at undergraduate level and higher is essential.
