Job Opportunities



Postdoctoral Researcher

The Midwest Integrated Center for Computational Materials at Argonne National Laboratory is looking for a postdoctoral candidate to perform research related to the development and experimental validation of computational models exploring new spin defects physics in optically active quantum systems.

The candidate will primarily be responsible for developing combined theoretical and experimental strategies for the discovery and characterization of spin defects in optically active quantum systems. The candidate will carry out first principles calculations on defective materials and of structural and optical properties directly comparable with experiments using codes developed within the MICCoM center. The candidate will also carry out optical experiments and materials characterization to validate theoretical and computational results with known and exploratory defects. These measurements will include optical spectroscopy, spin characterization, and basic materials characterization (defect density, strain, etc.) of known and unknown optical defect systems.

Postdoctoral Researcher (2)

The Midwest Integrated Center for Computational Materials is looking for two postdoctoral researchers to join the development teams located at Argonne National Laboratory and University of California, Davis.

Excellent candidates are sought with experience in the development of complex scientific software architectures to support algorithmic development for GPU programming and code development/otimization for high performance architectures. The codes to be ported to GPUs are the WEST code for electronic structure calculations, and the Qbox code for molecular dynamics. The postdoctoral researchers will work with a team of 10+ PhDs/postdocs contributing to the development of codes currently supported by MICCoM.
