Context

 

As a key player in research and innovation in Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), with its employees, is active in the domains of materials, the environment and IT. As an RTO (Research and Technology Organisation) and with its interdisciplinary impact-driven approach, LIST contributes to the development of Luxembourg’s economy and society.
The Materials Research and Technology Department (MRT) translates cutting-edge materials research into applicable technology, with about 150 collaborators. For this, the department cultivates close relationships and joint projects with both academic and industrial partners, and contributes to Luxembourg's and Europe's innovation agenda in Materials Research and Technology.

 

Description

 

The Advanced Instrumentation for Ion Nano-Analytics (AINA) group at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is renowned for developing innovative nano-analytical techniques for materials characterization. We are currently looking for a well-motivated candidate to perform PhD research using mainly molecular dynamics simulations to investigate the interaction of ultra-low energy ions with surfaces for nano-analysis and nano-fabrication.

The project offers opportunities to develop models for ultra-low energy processing and sputtering of materials, thereby supporting the development of novel nano-analytical techniques. The candidate will acquire highly-valued skills in numerical modelling and data interpretation and handling.

The PhD candidate shall be registered with the University of Luxembourg to fulfil academic requirements. The project is a close collaboration with ThermoFisher Scientific in Eindhoven.
