Postdoctoral Researcher - Materials Science and Engineering

Review of applications will begin on September 15, 2020 and continue until the position is filled.

The University of Delaware Center for Hybrid, Active, and Responsive Materials (UD-CHARM) is an NSF-supported Materials Research Science and Engineering Center supported by the National Science Foundation. UD-CHARM is harnessing the integrated power of computational design, innovative synthetic and manufacturing processes, and nanoscale characterization to unlock the substantial promise of complex synthetic materials at multiple length/time-scales - leveraging strategic control of interfaces, interactions, and synthetic specificity and consists of two interdisciplinary research groups (IRG). Each of these research groups is looking for a postdoctoral scholar to work on cross-cutting computational/theoretical aspects of the projects.


IRG 2 is creating hybrid quantum materials that control terahertz (THz) functionality, to enable unprecedented control over THz radiation and THz integrated circuits/devices. The team is manipulating interfaces and interactions between constituents to create hybrid materials that seamlessly convert between THz excitations of each constituent. We are looking for a postdoctoral scholar (reporting to the IRG Co-directors) to bridge the complementary theory approaches (first-principles calculations to atomistic tight binding to quantum transport codes).


We prefer candidates with experience with at least one of the following:

  • Atomistic modeling (at the level of DFT and tight-binding)
  • Computational quantum transport
  • Computational electromagnetics
  • Multiscale modeling
  • Modeling of material interfaces
  • Modeling materials electronic structure and response (at the level of TDDFT)
  • Modeling devices and device response (i.e. the fields and measurements needed to probe)

Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in materials science and engineering, chemical engineering, physics, chemistry, or a related discipline.  Applicants should submit a curriculum vita and a list of at least three references. The University of Delaware is committed to diversity in hiring; women and people from diverse cultures and backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply. Review of applications will begin on September 15, 2020 and continue until the position is filled.
