University Assistant (post doc)
at the Computational Materials Physics
Reference number: 10973
Within the laboratory directed by Prof. von Lilienfeld we develop new methods for the machine learning based acceleration of unbiased virtual compound space exploration campaigns based on quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics.
We are looking for an international senior scholar interested to join our effort.
Applicants should have multiple years of productive postdoctoral experience in the field.
The application must be accompanied by
- letter of motivation
- academic curriculum vitae (including a list of publications, a list of courses and a list of talks given)
- description of research interests and research agenda
- contact details of people who could provide a letter of reference
