at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 5/9/2019

Opportunity Description

Advisor: Oleg Borodin [Click Here To Join] 301-394-0066 Project Title: Modeling Electrodeposition and Electrochemical Interfaces A postdoctoral fellow opening in the area of modeling of electrochemical reactions at interfaces and electrodeposition. The successful candidate will participate on projects in the area of method development and applications of computational modeling to metal deposition and electrochemical reactions in realistic environments. The ideal candidate will have extensive experience in development of a validated multi-physics modeling methodology based on the phase-field theory or experience in both development and applications of the quantum chemical and force field-based methodology to simulations of complex systems, knowledge of statistical mechanics, programming experience (C++, Fortan, Python) and knowledge of electrochemistry. The project will primarily focus on method development but will also involve application of the existing DFT and phase-field software. Good working knowledge of QM modeling software (e.g. G09, VASP, cp2k or similar) and/or of classical mechanical simulations software (e.g. LAMMPS or similar) is a plus. Due to the collaborative nature of the project excellent communication and collaboration skills are essential. Applicants should have Ph.D. in mechanical engineering or computational chemistry, chemical physics, materials science, or a related discipline. Click here for more information

About Us

Grooming future leaders in science and technology requires enhancing the skills, knowledge and experience of workers early in their careers. To that end, ORAU (Oak Ridge Associated Universities) assists in connecting the best and most diverse students, recent graduates, faculty and professionals with world-class fellowships, internships and jobs, whether in national laboratories, research institutions, federal government offices or private sector R&D departments.

ORAU works with agencies such as the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. We work with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to place recent graduates in full-time and part-time jobs in the Office of Research and Development at EPA under the National Student Services Contract. ORAU also works with Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Data Science, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, Toxicology, and more.

If you are ready to take the next step in your career path, then we are ready to help you!
