Junior R&T Associate in Theory and Simulation of Functional Oxides (M/F)

Reference : MRT-2018-021

Type: Researcher
Contract type: Fixed term contract
Duration: 24 months
Place: Belvaux

Context

 

Nano-structured functional oxides – such as thin films, super-lattices or nano-composites – attract great interest because of the wealth of possibilities that they offer for optimizing functional propertiesand even inducing new ones. The project EXPAND is a collaboration between several laboratories in France (CNRS/Thales, Centrale Supelec) and Luxembourg (LIST) with a focus on ferroelectric and anti-ferroelectric (hetero)structures, and their responses to external electric and stress fields, including negative-capacitance and other effects of interest for various energy-related applications.

 

Description

 

In this context, we are looking for a post-doc to conduct theoretical research at LIST. More specifically, this post-doc will:

  • run atomistic simulations based on first- and second-principles methods
  • to understand, and find ways to optimize, the properties complex   (anti)ferroelectric oxides
  • an important goal being to support/guide the experimental efforts in EXPAND

The post-doc will work under the supervision of Dr. Jorge Íñiguez (jorge.iniguez@list.lu), whose recent work on related projects can be consulted in Google Scholar, and to whom interested candidates are welcome to address their queries.

 


Profile

 

Education

  • Condensed Matter Physics, Statistical Physics, Computational Materials Science
  • Must hold a PhD

Competencies

  • Have strong background on atomistic simulation methods
  • Be familiar with scientific programming (fortran, C, python)
  • Have good writing and communication skills
  • Knowledge of functional oxides, ferroelectrics will be an asset

Language

  • English (spoken and written) is mandatory
