PhD position in computational materials science/chemistry

par Secretaire - 13 décembre 2017

A PhD position is available at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in the department of Applied Physics under the supervision of Dr. Nicolas Onofrio.

Current projects involve atomistic simulations at various scales (including molecular dynamics and density functional theory) applied to problems related to 2D materials for water filtration and the development of new simulation methods to describe emerging memory devices.

Both topics require a solid background in physical chemistry and quantum mechanics (QM) with some experience in the corresponding computational modelling tools such as LAMMPS, ReaxFF and various QM package. The student must be strong in materials science with knowledge in 2D materials and/or glassy oxides/chalcogenides. Programming and scripting skills are of advantage.

Salary is 1780 EUR/month with possibility of a room at the University dorm. Please submit your application to Dr. Nicolas Onofrio ( including :

  • CV with publication list
  • arrange for 2 letters of reference directly sent to Dr. Onofrio via email

Deadline is January 5, 2018 and the expected starting date should be August/September 2018. The HK Polytechnic University is an English institution and excellent speaking/writing skills are required. ************************************
