Dear All,

Is it appropriate to post on this list news that are not related
to PWSCF/CP, but are relevant to the community ?

My suggestion would be that it could be useful to post notices of
electronic-structure schools, especially if Espresso related,
and open positions, again if Espresso related.

In order to test this theory, I attach a few notes below.


Bangalore Summer School on "Electronic Structure Methods and their
Applications" in conjunction with Conference on Computational Materials
Theory: http://www.jncasr.ac.in/smr1783/
2006 Summer School on Computational Materials Science
Ab Initio Molecular Dynamics Simulation Methods in Chemistry:
http://www.mcc.uiuc.edu/summerschool/2006/ (Please note that
the Espresso program has not been uploaded yet, but lecturers
will include Stefano Baroni and Roberto Car)
Postdoc position:
Defect evolution and deformation in metastable alloys

Applications are invited for one postdoctoral position in the MIT
Department of Materials Science and Engineering.  This researcher will
work with Profs. Sidney Yip, Nicola Marzari, and Krystyn Van Vliet as
part of an interdisciplinary, international team that includes strong
collaboration with industry partners. The focus of the project is
multiscale computational modeling and simulation of metastable metallic
alloys under extreme thermal and mechanical environments. The objective
is to identify mechanisms of crystalline defect evolution and
consequences toward mechanical deformation. Funding of
this position is for an initial period of 2 years. Demonstrated
experience in scientific programming and the application of ab initio /
DFT methods for solid state systems is mandatory; experience with
kinetic Monte Carlo and molecular/dislocation dynamics is preferred. The
position is open immediately with a mutually agreed starting date.
Requests for further information and applications (CV, two recommenders'
contact information, and one representative publication) should be sent
to Prof. Krystyn J. Van Vliet, Department of Materials Science and
Engineering, MIT; E-mail:krystyn at mit.edu
