The Physics and Chemistry of Materials group (T-1) at Los Alamos National Laboratory is seeking qualified applicants for possible postdoctoral openings in several research areas. The candidate will be expected to perform outstanding research in the field of computational physics and chemistry on problems concerning properties and dynamics of materials. The members of the T-1 group, who would sponsor the postdoctoral associate, are experts in theory and simulation of materials using a wide range of techniques, spanning multiple length-scales, from the atomic to the continuum.
The Physics and Chemistry of Materials group (T-1), seek to understand how basic forces operating at the atomic level manifest themselves in the properties of matter at the macroscopic level. The group maintains theory, modeling and simulation capabilities in a broad set of materials-related areas. Current activities in the group include research in atoms, molecules, solids, liquids, gases, and plasmas. Our goal is to provide innovative and creative solutions needed to solve technical problems across the Laboratory's missions, including energy security, stockpile stewardship, and global threat reduction.
