Brief Description:
The USAL4EXCELLENCE Fellowship Programme, cofunded by Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions H2020-MSCA-COFUND-2020 and Junta de Castilla y León offers 20 fellowships in the framework of the European Horizon 2020 programme “Marie Sklodowska-Curie Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes”. This is a call for 30-month postdoctoral fellowships across all thematic areas (Chemistry, Social Sciences and Humanities, Economic Sciences, Information Science and Engineering, Environment and Geosciences, Life Sciences, Mathematics and Physics) in the University of Salamanca (Spain).

Main Tasks and responsibilities:

1) Implement reliable ML interatomic potentials (MLP) based on DFT calculations for nanocrystalline silicon (grain boundaries and AlN interfaces); 2) building effective Hamiltonian models for the electronic properties of the materials; 3) extract electronic and thermal transport properties from dynamical simulations; 4) prepare scientific documentation, articles and reports; 5) participate in the collaboration with the experimental partners in the project; 6) contribute to other activities in the group.

Brief Description:

The Theory & Simulations group has broad experience in development and applications of electronic structure tools, including advanced workflows for atomistic modelling in nanoscience. The group is core developer of the SIESTA ab initio method, a flagship code of the MaX European Centre of Excellence for exascale computing in Materials Science (www.max-centre.eu). Within MAGNIFIC we will theoretically explore the interplay between electron, phonons and photons in nanocrystalline silicon for nano-opto-electro-mechanical devices. Interatomic potentials based on ML will be used to build realistic atomistic structures of the grain boundaries in nc-Si, and to study their vibrational (thermal) properties. DFT calculations will be used to characterize the electronic properties and build Effective Hamiltonian models. Methods to incorporate the reciprocal interactions between electrons and phonons at simple grain boundaries from first principles will be explored and developed.

Main Tasks and responsibilities:

1) Implement reliable ML interatomic potentials (MLP) based on DFT calculations for nanocrystalline silicon (grain boundaries and AlN interfaces); 2) building effective Hamiltonian models for the electronic properties of the materials; 3) extract electronic and thermal transport properties from dynamical simulations; 4) prepare scientific documentation, articles and reports; 5) participate in the collaboration with the experimental partners in the project; 6) contribute to other activities in the group.

Brief Description:

Postdoctoral position available in Iñigo Landa’s lab at Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA. We study basic and translational aspects of thyroid cancer genetics and biology. The ideal candidate has a PhD in Biology or related discipline and a background in cancer research, and can work both independently and as a team member. This position entails working in a funded project to study the biological underpinnings of aggressive thyroid cancers with telomerase reactivation, and to screen for drugs targeting this oncoprotein and/or its associated effects. We anticipate that this project will be completed in 1-2 years and will actively seek for additional funding to further extend our research.

Deadline: N/A
Brief Description:

We are seeking for postdoctoral researchers with experience in the areas or microbiology, immunology, pathology, and host-pathogen interaction. The laboratory uses Bordetella bronchiseptica combined with the murine model to investigate at the molecular level the intricacies of the host-pathogen interaction. The postdoctoral position involves, doing experiments, analyzing data, writing manuscripts, writing grants, come up with ideas and new questions, mentor junior students. I expect to find someone self-motivated, friendly, hard-worker and that contributes to the friendly and happy atmosphere that we have in the lab.
