Work offered

Kind of work:
The research focuses on studying materials properties under normal and extreme conditions using state of arts computational and experimental techniques. I am mainly interested in neutron moderators and nuclear fuels materials. The main tracks of my work are:
1- Studying nuclear materials vibrational and thermal properties as a function of temperature and pressure using DFT calculations.
2- Studying neutron themalization in neutron moderators (neutron-phonon interaction) and develop thermal neutron scattering cross section libraries
3- Measuring the vibrational properties (phonons) of nuclear fuel and moderators using inelastic neutron scattering techniques.
I am looking for a Master or a PhD student who can work with me for 6 months (Sep 2019 – Feb 2020) in one or more of the above tracks. The potential candidate is expected to have a good background in solid-state physics, and to be familiar with ab initio calculations. Being familiar with Molecular Dynamics Calculations and Python is a plus.
