The Working Group Scale-Bridging Simulation of Functional Composites of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Advanced Materials Simulation (ICAMS) is looking for as of 01.01.2023 a

PhD in the Emmy-Noether group: Scale-bridging computational design of multifunctional ferroelectric composites (m,f,x) for 3 years with 29,8725 hours per week (TV-L E13)

The goal of the Emmy-Noether group is the scale-bridging design of ferroelectric composites. For this purpose we use and develop further ab initio based simulation methods.

extent: part-time
duration: temporary
beginning: 01.01.2023
application dateline: 26.09.2022

Your tasks:

  • Simulation of the structure-property relationship in ferroelectric materials and composites systems
  • Validiation and development of scale-bridging simulation methods

Your profile:

  • Master or Diploma in Physics, Chemistry, Material science or similar
  • Strong background: ferroelectrics, functional properties and microstructure-function relationship
  • Expertise in computer simulations (atomistic and/or microstructure)
  • Good coding skills (Pyhton, C/C++ or Fortran are a plus)
  • Ability to work independently as well as in an international and interdisciplinary team
  • Excellent English language skills

Our offerings:

  • team-oriented cooperation in a committed, international and appreciative team
  • employment at one of the largest universities in Germany in the University Alliance Ruhr network
  • Fair and flexible working hours
  • Extensive opportunities for further education and training

Additional information:

If the position is funded by third-party funds the employee has no teaching obligation.

At the request of the applicant (m,f,x), the staff council may be involved in selection interviews.

Qualified application is expected.

The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is one of Germany’s leading research universities, addressing the whole range of academic disciplines. A highly dynamic setting enables researchers and students to work across the traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties. To create knowledge networks within and beyond the university is RUB’s declared aim.

The Ruhr-Universität Bochum stands for diversity and equal opportunities. For this reason, we favour a working environment composed of heterogeneous teams, and seek to promote the careers of individuals who are underrepresented in our respective professional areas. The Ruhr-Universität Bochum expressly requests job applications from women. In areas in which they are underrepresented they will be given preference in the case of equivalent qualifications with male candidates. Applications from individuals with disabilities are most welcome.
