Junior R&T Associate in the field of atomistic simulations of functional materials (m / f)

Fixed term contract 24 months Fulltime / 40h Belvaux


Nano-structured materials, in particular ferroic oxides, attract great interest because of the wealth of possibilities they offer for optimizing their functional properties and even inducing new ones.

Quantum-mechanical first-principles methods have become an indispensable tool in cutting-edge materials research, as they allow to better understand the physical causes for observed phenomena as well as to predict and test strategies to develop high-

performing materials (computational materials design).

The employer’s Nanomaterials and Nanotechnologies (Nano) Unit have a clear vision to strengthen their atomistic simulation capabilities and to better integrate them with their experimental and technological activities.


In this context, we are looking for a senior post-doc to conduct theoretical and simulation materials research. More specifically, this post-doc will :

  • Run atomistic simulations, using first-principles methods, aimed at supporting the activities of the and in particular the Ferroics Materials for Transducers (FMT) group and the Nano Unit as a whole
  • Contribute to the theory and simulation projects in the FMT group, which cover a wide range of materials and phenomena in the context of functional ferroic oxides
  • Identify opportunities for new experiment theory collaborations in the FMT group and the Nano Unit as a whole
  • Education

  • PhD in Physics, Materials Science or related discipline
  • Required seniority

  • At least two years of previous post-doctoral experience
  • Competencies

  • Expert in the use of first-principles simulation methods based on denstify fucntional theory
  • Experience working with functional oxides, in particular ferroics
  • Ability to tackle a wide range of materials and physical phenomena
  • Demonstrated ability to interact effectively with experimentalists and scientists of different backgrounds
  • Demonstrated ability to conceive and carry out a project to completion independently, including writing and publication skills
  • Demonstrated ability to work and thrive in a collaborative environment, team mentality
  • Language

  • Good spoken and written English is mandatory
  • Job reference : MRT-2019-070
