Computational Material Design Researcher - Physics

We are seeking undergraduate researchers who are interested in understanding and computing the properties of novel nanomaterials using state-of-the art computational techniques. While most of our work is based on application of techniques such as molecular dynamics, kinetic Monte Carlo, and density functional theory, we are also interested in engaging data analytics and other AI techniques to build structure-property maps that are expected to accelerate materials discovery. The individual is expected to work about 10 hours per week and attend group meetings.
