Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Computational Mineralogy and Geochemistry
(3-year term position)
The deep Earth materials group of the Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics, University of Oslo, seeks a postdoctoral fellow in computational mineralogy and geochemistry (first principles atomistic simulation by DFT, using mainly the VASP platform). The current group members include R.G. Trønnes, C.E. Mohn and adjunct professors J.P. Brodholt and R. Caracas. We focus on the phase relations, material properties, chemical exchange and heat and mass transfer in the lower mantle and outer core. Developing new and improved methodologies is an important aspect of the efforts. Our ultimate objective is to put tighter constraints on the structure, materials, physical properties and dynamics of the lower mantle and outer core. The application deadline is August 25.
