ENGAGE (Enabling the next generation of computational physicists and engineers) project invites applications for a PhD Fellowship in “Multi-scale simulation methodologies of organic semiconductors for morphology control” under the supervision of Prof. V. Harmandaris at The Cyprus Institute, Cyprus.
The project will focus on the two-dimensional (2D) materials are sheet-like macroscopic crystals with thickness of one or (maximum) a few atomistic or molecular building units. One prominent case is 2D crystals of organic semiconductors (OS), which have tremendous potential to serve as active layers of optoelectronic devices that benefit from a 2D architecture. This project focuses on developing and applying novel, quantitative, multi-scale simulation methodologies for studying 2D-OS, understand their molecular arrangement and develop design rules to formulate molecular-, system-, and process-design guidelines for manufacturing large-area single crystals.
Deadline of application: 30th September 2022
Candidates must hold a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in physics, chemistry, applied mathematics, engineering, computational science/informatics from reputable Universities, or a related field with outstanding performance record. Proven computational and numerical skills, knowledge of a modern programming language and/or experience in high-performance computing (using e.g., GPU-acceleration) are desirable. Experience in molecular simulations, high-performance computing or any related field will be considered an advantage.
A full description of the project is available on the ENGAGE website. Details on remuneration and how to apply can be found at https://engage.cyi.ac.cy
