August 8th - 1 year post-doc (1/2 ATER) position opens at MATEIS/INSA-Lyon [URGENT]

posted Aug 8, 2017, 4:40 AM by Jonathan Amodeo

An 1/2 ATER (research + 90h/year teaching) position is opening at the MATEIS lab, INSA-Lyon. starting in the early September. The person recruited will teach physics (1st and 2nd year INSA-Lyon) and materials sciences. As a possible research topic, the person recruited could work on modeling metallic/oxyde nanoparticles using molecular dynamics simulations (with J. Amodeo, M. Bugnet and C. Fusco). As a background, a strong expertise in atomistic simulations, dislocations and plastic deformation is expected. More information here (in french). Deadline August, 18th.
