Vacant positions

Professor/Associate Professor in Material Engineering

About the position

The candidate for this position is expected to develop his/her research line within the Materials research group at the Dept. of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at NTNU. Outstanding candidates in the following areas are encouraged to apply since these applications will be prioritised: 

  • Hydrogen
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning with focus on materials or materials engineering
  • Mesoscale modelling of materials
  • Sustainable materials and their applications 

Deadline: 31 March 2021

Two postdoctoral research fellow positions are available within the research group of Dr Benoit Coasne at CNRS/Univ. Grenoble Alpes in Grenoble, France to work on the molecular simulation and theory of gas/liquid adsorption and transport in porous media. The projects, which are funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR), aim to apply molecular simulation tools but also upscaling strategies on water and/or various gases transport in complex porous materials (carbon-based or silica-based).

The postdoctoral researchers are expected to possess significant expertise in Monte Carlo and/or equilibrium/non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations but also a strong background in the physics/physical chemistry of fluid adsorption and transport in nanoporous media. Further details on our research interests can be found at or by sending an email at

Each position is funded for 1 year renewable for another year with a starting date on September 2020 (or later if needed). The successful candidates must have a PhD in Physics, Physical Chemistry, Materials Science or Chemical Engineering with a focus on molecular modelling.

To apply for the opened position, just send an email with letter, CV, references at
