11th February 2020 : Associate Professor in Computational Materials Physics, UCL

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to share with you an opening for an Associate Professor in
Computational Materials Physics
University College London, Department of Physics and Astronomy. I would
be grateful if you could forward this
message to suitable candidates in your network. Suitable candidates
would currently hold a position of assistant professor, lecturer, group
or sub-group leader, independent fellow or equivalent.

Below are some more details on the post.

Thank you and best wishes,

Dr. Andela Saric
Associate Professor
University College London

*Associate Professor in Computational Materials Physics University
College London Department of Physics and Astronomy*

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at UCL aims to appoint an
Associate Professor in Computational Materials Physics. The appointment
is a full-time position.

We seek candidates with research experience and interests in any aspect
of computational materials physics. The successful candidate will become
part of the Condensed Matter and Materials Physics (CMMP) group in the
Department of Physics & Astronomy at UCL. The CMMP is a strong
contributor to the London Thomas Young Centre, a world-leading network
for the Theory and Simulation of Materials. It also has close links with
the London Centre for Nanotechnology and other interdisciplinary centres
and networks at UCL, and beyond.

Our present interests in the area of computational materials physics
include, for example, quantum and
classical molecular simulations of chemical reactions, defects in solids
and at surfaces, and electronic structure and processes in insulators
and semiconductor systems. We welcome applications from candidates whose
research will strengthen our present interests and diversify them into
new areas, such as physics of smart, reconfigurable and/or degradable
materials, development and applications of rare events simulations,
machine learning, and big data methods in materials physics. Priority
will be given to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s
work over any particular specialisation area.

Please note that the main focus of this post should not be on
biophysics, but links with biophysics will be welcome. If you are not
sure that your research fits into this post, you are advised to make an
enquiry to Professor S. T. Bramwell (s.t.bramwell@ucl.ac.uk
) before applying.
