Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The Delaire group at Duke University has an open postdoc position focused on modeling of atomic dynamics in energy materials, combining simulations with neutron/x-ray scattering measurements.  Please see further details in the ad below. The position is open immediately. I would appreciate if you could forward this to potential candidates.

Thank you,

A Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) position is available in the Delaire group at Duke University to work on studies of atomic structure and dynamics in solid-state inorganic materials. Our group conducts scattering experiments (neutrons/x-rays) and materials simulations (DFT, MD, AI-ML) to investigate atomic dynamics, transport and thermodynamic properties of energy materials, functional materials and quantum materials.

The PDRA position is open immediately. Applicants with a Ph.D. in physics, solid-state chemistry or materials science, or related fields, are encouraged to apply. We are targeting candidates with established experience in first-principles materials modelling, machine learning techniques, and proficiency with data sciences and programming. Expertise in scattering investigations of materials & condensed-matter, especially inelastic scattering techniques / spectroscopy will be an advantage.

We are seeking creative individuals with a demonstrated track-record of productive research. Successful candidates are expected to have excellent written/oral communication skills, be committed to teamwork and thrive in a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary research environment. Our group offers a collaborative, supportive, and inclusive work environment with many opportunities for professional development. More information about Delaire group:

About Duke University: Located in Durham, NC (nearby Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina), Duke is a top US research university, with a dynamic research environment and scenic campus. National rankings consistently rate the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill (“Triangle”) region among the five best places in the country to live and work, with a moderate weather, reasonable cost of living, highly educated workforce, and a welcoming environment. A collaborative, supportive environment for business and innovation and research collaborations with area universities and the Research Triangle Park are compelling reasons for relocation to the area.
