The successful applicant will perform theoretical materials science research on complex concentrated alloys (multi-component alloys, high entropy alloys) employing first-principles calculations and related atomistic simulation techniques in the research group of Dr. Fritz Körmann. The main goal is to develop efficient ab initio based simulation techniques to investigate the interplay between phase stability, short-range order and other materials properties to explore the large phase space for optimized materials properties combinations.
Preferred starting date: 01.10.2018 (exact starting date negotiable).
Applicants should have a MSc degree in theoretical or computational physics, chemistry, materials science or closely related field. Proficiency in English is required. Prior experience with density functional theory, modelling of alloys, application of interatomic potentials, or programming techniques are very welcome.
