Position: Research Fellow in Computational Mineral Physics
Institution: University College London
Department: Department of Earth Sciences
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: Applications are invited for a Research Fellow position in Computational Mineral Physics in the Mineral Physics group in UCL Earth Sciences whose aim is to understand the dynamics and evolution of the deep Earth and planets; The research will focus on ab initio predictions of material properties relevant to the cores of terrestrial planets. In particular, the calculations of adiabatic temperature gradients, melting curves, densities and latent heats of iron alloy systems at planetary conditions. The results of this project will inform models of planetary evolution
Requirements: The successful candidate will have a PhD, or thesis submitted subject to examination, in physics or geosciences, or have the equivalent relevant experience, and have a first degree in physics, geophysics or a related subject; Experience of ab initio calculations (using codes such as VASP) is essential; Experience of calculating the properties of magnetic materials is desirable
