Post-doctoral Fellow in Computational Science and Engineering

Closing Date: 17/12/2023

The Cyprus lnstitute (Cyl) is a non-profit science and technology educational and research institution based in Cyprus and led by an acclaimed Board of Trustees. The research agenda of Cyl falls within the following four research centers: The Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center (CaSToRC); the Science and Technology in Archaeology and Culture Research Center (STARC); the Energy, Environment and Water Research Center (EEWRC); and the Climate and Atmosphere Research Center (CARE-C). Considerable cross-center interaction is a characteristic feature of the lnstitute’s culture.

The Cyprus Institute invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Fellow who will be integrated in the Computational Science and Engineering team of CaSToRC. The candidate will pursue research in the context of both nationally (RIF) and internally (EC) funded projects, focusing on the overall acoustic behaviour of multi-layered fabrics that combine the nanofiber mesh with standardised materials (e.g. cotton or foam) for the purpose of guiding product design through constrained optimisation and parametric studies.

The initial appointment is for a fixed-term period of 1 year, with the possibility of renewal subject to performance and the availability of funds. An internationally competitive remuneration package will be offered, which is commensurate with the level of experience of the successful candidate.

Responsibilities/activities to be involved in:

  • Predictive model based on multi-scale computational modelling of complex nanostructured materials for the acoustic performance of nanofiber mesh layer.
  • Developing algorithms and codes for simulations/data analytics in engineering applications.
  • Performing large-scale computations in computational engineering.
  • Writing proposals for accessing computational resources.

Required Qualifications & Experience

  • A PhD degree in Physical Sciences, Mathematics, Mechanical engineering, Computational Engineering or Computer Science

The candidate must hold a PhD degree of a recognized higher education institution before the deadline of the opening. Candidates who have successfully defended their doctoral thesis but who have not yet formally been awarded the doctoral degree will also be considered eligible to apply provided that they can document their successful defense of the thesis.

  • Previous experience in molecular simulations for complex molecular systems.
  • Previous experience in at least two of the following areas: multi-scale modelling, molecular dynamics, statistical methods, data analytics, and stochastic (Monte Carlo) methods.
  • Publications in high-impact factor journals.
  • Participation in top international scientific conferences
  • Excellent knowledge of statistics and data analytics methods.
  • Excellent knowledge of programming languages such as C, C++, Fortran90, and Python.
  • An understanding of High-Performance Computing (OpenMP, OpenAcc, MPI, CUDA).
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and ability to work as part of an interdisciplinary team.
  • High-level communication and strong scientific and technical writing skills;
  • Proficiency in oral and written English.
  • High level of organizational, analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
