CECAM Headquarters, located in the EPFL campus in Lausanne (Switzerland), has an opening for two postdoctoral positions for two years each to work under the supervision of Prof. Ignacio Pagonabarraga and Dr. Sara Bonella in the framework of the SNSF funded project ‘Coarse-grained and multiscale molecular dynamics for active matter’.
Application deadline: 31st December 2021
One postdoc and one PhD position available at Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society
One Postdoc position development of kinetic Monte Carlo software and multilevel strategies and one PhD position on the development of multilevel surrogate models for atomistic-continuum coupling for heterogeneous catalysis are available at Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, Berlin, Germany
Information related to CoVid-19
CECAM is monitoring the situation and working to mitigate disruption of activities while ensuring strict compliance with restrictions and precautions. The health and safety of our guests and staff is our key concern. Our priority is to minimise - as much as possible - risks and to fulfil our responsibilities towards the community and our hosting institutions.
Details on actions at HQ and the Nodes can be found scrolling news items on this page.
Information related to CoVid-19: Events at HQ
The epidemic situation in Switzerland is relatively stable and the rates of new Covid infections and hospital admissions are encouraging. Most activities are now authorized, but the Swiss authorities mandated a Covid certificate to access activities in indoor spaces as of September 13th 2021. As a result, all on-site participants to CECAM events will be required to show a valid Covid certificate, compatible with Switzerland’s QR code system (e.g. EU Green Pass).
All standard channels of communication with organisers and participants are available. Participants should refer firstly to organisers for information on specific events.

NEXT: DEEP LEARNING IN MATERIALS SCIENCE:
INTERPRETATION, GENERALIZATION, AND THE RISK OF OVERFITTING
NEXT: The main purpose of this Psi-k/CECAM research conference is to to highlight the very recent theoretical and computational developments related to the interplay of spin-orbit interaction with electronic structure.
CECAM (Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire) is an organization devoted to the promotion of fundamental research on advanced computational methods and to their application to important problems in frontier areas of science and technology. As the name suggests, the traditional focus of CECAM has been atomistic and molecular simulations, applied to the physics and chemistry of condensed matter. Over the last twenty years, powerful advances in computer hardware and software have supported the extension of these methods to a wide range of problems in materials science, biology and medicinal chemistry.
The power of simulation and modeling is intimately related to the available computational resources, to the community’s awareness of these resources, and to its proficiency in their optimal exploitation. In these weekly webinars we explore High Performance Computing as an enabler of new science…with a focus on the science!
