Position: Research Fellow in Computational Materials Science-Group of Prof. Nan Wang (RF-2018011)

Thank you for submitting your application. We will contact you shortly!

Research Fellow in Computational Materials Science-Group of Prof. Nan Wang (RF-2018011)

The Materials Science and Engineering Program (group of Nan Wang) is looking for a postdoctoral research fellow to lead research projects in computational materials science related to additive manufacturing technology and nano-electronics. Contract duration: 2-3 years.

Project Details

Macroscopic behaviors of many technologically important materials are originated from mechanisms at meso-scale where defects, interfaces and non-equilibrium structures are the key. Computational methods based on non-equilibrium statistical thermodynamics are used to simulate complex dynamics of defects and interfaces, shed light on underlying mechanisms, and provide vital guidance to experimental studies. With recent progresses in material informatics and close experiment collaborations, significant impacts from computational methods are expected in emerging fields like 3D alloy printing and nano electronics.


Thermodynamics, non-equilibrium, meso-scale, computational modeling, interfaces, dynamic instability, nanostructure, microstructure evolution, multiscale analysis.

Selection Criteria

– PhD degree in Physics or Material Science or other related fields (essential)

– Strong interest in non-equilibrium phenomenon and mesoscopic science (essential)

– Good knowledge in engineering materials and computational methods (preferable)

– Good communication skills, good command of English (essential)

– Ability to work independently as well as in a team environment (essential)

– Ability to author scientific reports and co-author scientific publications (essential)


– Salary range: up to $49,000 / year (depending on qualifications of the candidate)

– Subsidized housing at GTIIT, China

– Health insurance: regular cover for Chinese citizens or private health insurance for foreigners

– Professional conference travel allowance
