The MedeA software package developed by Materials Design is the leading environment for the atomistic simulation of materials. MedeA enables professional, day-to-day deployment of atomic-scale and nano-scale computations for materials engineering, optimization, and discovery. In MedeA, world-class simulation engines are integrated with elaborate property prediction modules, experimental databases, structure builders and analysis tools, all in one user-friendly environment.

Now Hiring:
Research and Development Position for Microstructure Modeling

Materials Design is a state-of-the-art computational materials modeling software and contract research provider, with customers, partners, and collaborators worldwide. Building on its extensive experience in ab initio electronic structure methods and atomistic simulations using forcefields, Materials Design seeks gifted candidates to support an ongoing corporate thrust into mesoscale and multiscale materials modeling.


Professional Responsibilities


  • Scientific and engineering model development using the MedeA materials simulation environment in combination with tools such as MOOSE

  • Preparation and delivery of presentations and reports, maintaining close contacts with customers

  • Collaboration with software development team, software testing, documentation

  • Meeting project goals, milestones, and timelines


Qualifications and Skills


  • Ph.D. in materials science, physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering, or closely related disciplines

  • Established record of scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals, presentations at scientific conferences

  • Expertise in the development and use of advanced materials modeling software in particular in the area of microstructure modeling

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, writing skills, team orientation, and problem-solving abilities


Desirable Experience


  • Experience in phase field modeling, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, and electronic structure methods and programs including LAMMPS, GIBBS, VASP, Quantum Espresso, MOPAC, and Gaussian

  • Experience with object-oriented environments such as MOOSE

  • Programming languages and tools: Fortran 90, C/C++, Tcl, Python, Subversion, Make, cMake, Windows, Linux, OS X, shell scripting

  • High performance computing platforms, GPU’s, parallel computing, cluster management


In the first months of employment, the candidate will be based near Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, USA to work with Professor Anter El-Azab of Purdue University and Materials Design technical staff in the design of a chemo-mechanical microstructure evolution model for aqueous corrosion of zirconium alloys. Subsequently, the place of work can be chosen by mutual agreement. Authorization to work in the United States or in Europe is required.


Interested, highly qualified candidates are encouraged to contact Dr. Erich Wimmer, MDI Chief Scientific Officer, at ewimmer@materialsdesign.com
