The Khaliullin group (McGill University) is accepting applications for three postdoctoral positions in the area of high-throughput computational materials design. The emphasis of the projects is on the development of electronic structure and machine learning methods for rapid materials screening.

Position 1. Design of exotic 2D materials for electronic and clean energy applications. Position 2. Design of anode and electrolyte materials for all-solid batteries. Position 3. Electronic structure theory of molecules and materials.

Required qualifications: * Ph.D. obtained no later than 2019 in physics, chemistry, computer science, applied mathematics, materials science, or any relevant discipline; * Established publication record in method development; * Solid programming skills.

Desired qualifications: * Knowledge of numerical methods and algorithms (linear algebra, statistics, optimization); * Working knowledge of electronic structure methods (QMC, DFT). * Familiarity with machine learning methods and their applications in materials modeling;

Please send your CV to Prof. Rustam Khaliullin at and indicate which of the three positions you would be interested in. Shortlisted candidates will be asked to complete a skills test and then will be contacted individually for an online interview.

We are not accepting applications for this job through AcademicJobsOnline.Org right now. Please see the job description above on how to apply.
