Postdoc Positions (5+) in Beijing Computational Science Research Center

Beijing Computational Science Research Center (CSRC) a newly established interdisciplinary institute in China is recruiting multiple postdoctoral positions (http://www.csrc.ac.cn) to conduct top research in computational sciences in condensed matter physics, quantum optics, biological sciences, and material sciences and advance algorithm developments. The initial appointment will be for two years with a possible renewal for the third with an annual salary of from 130,000 to 240,000 RMB depending on experience, and research funding, housing, and transportation benefits are also provided. The potential candidates should demonstrate record of top quality research work in computational and interdisciplinary research background. Multiple positions are available for strongly-motivated researchers to conduct high quality computational science research with scientists in CSRC.

Position A1: Fractional modeling of soft matter and beyond: Fractional PDEs (FPDEs) are a powerful alternative for modeling systems with nonlocal interactions and memory effects. We are looking for a candidate who can develop new numerical methods for FPDEs and design computer codes that can be used to model viscoelasticity, interfacial phenomena and sharp boundaries, as well as general conservation laws. A PhD in Applied Math is required and experience with computer programming. (Supervisor: George Karniadakis, Applied Math, Brown and Cai Wei, Algorithms, CSRC).

Position A2: Stochastic multiscale modeling of materials: We are interested in developing a mathematical and computational framework at the mesoscale, bridging the scale between microscale and continuum descriptions of materials, focusing primarily on soft matter and complex fluids. A PhD in Applied Math, Physics or Engineering is required as well as familiarity with microscopic, mesoscopic and continuum methods, including stochastic PDEs. (Supervisor: George Karniadakis, Applied Math, Brown and Cai Wei, Algorithms, CSRC).

Position A3: Atomistic modeling of catalyzed growth of semiconductor nanowires. Development of interatomic potential for the Ge-Au system by fitting to ab initio data and experimental phase diagram. Large scale molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of nanowire growth. Extend the time scale limit of MD simulation of nanowire growth by advanced sampling algorithms. Coupling with continuum model of nanowire growth (see position A4) by providing material inputs. (Supervisor: Prof. Wei Cai, Mechanical Engineering, Stanford).

Position A4: Continuum phase field modeling of catalyzed growth of semiconductor nanowires. Development of phase field simulation program suitable for large scale parallel computers based on the existing serial implementation. Investigating the mechanisms of morphological changes (instabilities) during nanowire nucleation and growth. Coupling with atomistic models of nanowire growth (see position A3). (Supervisor: Prof. Wei Cai, Mechanical Engineering, Stanford).

Position A5: General areas of scientific computing. Multiple other positions will be available in areas including computational material sciences (first principle methods, molecular dynamics), computational neurosciences, multi-scale and stochastic modeling of biological and physical systems, etc. (Algorithms Division, CSRC).

Applications should consist of curriculum vitae, including a list of publications, summary of future research plans, and three letters of reference. Please identify the position code in your application.

Application materials should be electronically sent to Ms. Juan Yang by email yangjuan@csrc.ac.cn with a subject line "Algorithms Postdocs". All positions are available immediately.
