Job Description

Post-Doctoral Research Associate- Materials Science & Engineering - 23000001OE 



Postdoctoral Research Associate

Focus: Development of machine learning models for high entropy materials

Description: The University of Tennessee has an opening of a postdoctoral position in developing machine learning models for high entropy materials. This position resides in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at the University of Tennessee (UT), as part of a multidisciplinary project aimed at developing new alloys and ceramics for extreme environment applications. The postdoctoral research associate will be supervised by Haixuan Xu and Eric Lass in the Materials Science and Engineering Department at UT and will work collaboratively with a team of faculty and students in MSE, Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Nuclear Engineering, as well as scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The initial appointment is a temporary full-time assignment of 12 months with the possibility of extension for another two years.




Desired Qualifications:

  • Experience with machine learning methods (TensorFlow, Large Language Model, etc.).
  • Experience with computational materials science, e.g. density functional theory, molecular dynamics, kinetic monte Carlo, computational thermodynamics, etc.
  • Experience with high entropy materials, e.g. high entropy alloys and high entropy oxides
  • Demonstrated experience in interdisciplinary science, especially in the areas of materials science and physics.
  • Experience with GPU programming and paralleling programing, such as MPI, and programming language python and C++.
  • Present and report research results and publish in peer-reviewed scientific journals in a timely manner.
  • Work collaboratively in a team environment and interact effectively with a broad range of colleagues.

Education:  A PhD in Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry, or a related discipline is required. The candidate is expected to have a record of productive research demonstrated by publications in peer-reviewed journals.  

Communication: Excellent presentation, oral and written communication skills. 
Interested applicants should send inquiries and application materials (a cover letter and curriculum vita) to hxu8@utk.edu and elass@utk.edu
