PhD Position in Computational Soft Matter Physics

Shear Modulus and Dynamic Heterogeneities in Polymer Solutions and Melts

Summary: Many liquids cooled to low temperatures T form glasses
(amorphous solids) instead of crystals. Polymer melts―that is, liquids
formed of macromolecular chains―represent a particular example. As the
melt is cooled from the liquid state toward the glass transition
temperature Tg, the viscosity of the melt increases by many orders of
magnitude. In proportion to this huge dynamic slowing down the structure
of the melt only changes very little. This discrepancy poses a
formidable scientific problem. Understanding its molecular origin
represents an important issue in condensed matter research.

A key to this understanding could be that the melt becomes `dynamically
heterogeneous' at low T. Dynamic heterogeneity means that the monomers
(i.e., the elementary units of a polymer chain) temporarily organize in
regions of very different mobility. To evidence these regions it has
been suggested to study dynamic 4-point correlation functions. Such a
4-point correlation function is the `shear modulus', an experimentally
accessible quantity which characterizes the viscoelastic response of the
melt to a weak external shear field. The shear modulus has been studied
extensively in polymer physics, however not so much with a particular
focus on the information contained about the dynamics close to the glass
transition.

The present project proposes to study by molecular dynamics simulation
the shear modulus and other dynamic correlation functions for model
polymer melts and solutions. For these systems an interesting interplay
exists between the degrees of freedom characteristic of the polymer
chain and collective processes causing the heterogeneity of the dynamics
close to Tg. We want to explore this correlation, for instance, by
varying the properties of our polymer model (chain flexibility,
torsional barriers, etc.) while keeping unchanged the interactions
between the chains.

Funds: The PhD position will be funded by the French Ministry of
Research. The position is for three years, starting on October 1, 2008.

Context of the thesis: The thesis takes place in the framework of the
`International Research Training Group─Soft Condensed Matter'. It
involves our research group in Strasbourg and the group of Prof. M.
Fuchs in Konstanz (Germany). A stay of about half a year in Konstanz
represents an essential part of this collaboration. During this stay a
comparison between the simulation results and a theoretical approach,
based on the so-called `Mode-coupling theory', shall be carried out.
This theory is currently developed by Prof. Fuchs and a colleague from
Japan, Prof. S.-H. Chong. A short-term visit with Prof. Chong can also
be envisaged.

Job profile: We are looking for a physicist (or theoretical chemist)
with a good knowledge of statistical physics, an experience in
programming (FORTRAN and/or C), and some familiarity with the LINUX
operating system. The candidate should carry out extensive molecular
simulations (also on parallel computers) and thorough theoretical
analyses of the numerical results.

Candidature: Please send a CV (including marks and contact details of
referees) and a brief letter explaining your interest in this thesis to
baschnag@ics.u-strasbg.fr. Deadline: June 10, 2008.

Postdoctoral research: First-principles simulations of phase equilibria

Fluid phase equilibria at extreme conditions will be studied with Monte
Carlo simulations based on first-principles (ab initio) energy
evaluations. These methods will be applied in a survey of the
high-temperature fluid phase behavior of elemental systems across the
periodic table, including liquid-liquid and liquid-vapor transitions in
lithium and sodium, boron, carbon, phosphorous, and sulfur and selenium.
The solubility of various elements in liquid metals will also be
considered, and later work will extend to molecular fluids and coupled
chemical and phase equilibria. This work is supported by the National
Science Foundation.

Applicants for this position should have some experience in molecular
simulation and a good understanding of statistical thermodynamics.
Expertise with first-principles methods, especially density functional
theories, is highly desirable but not absolutely necessary. The initial
appointment will be for one year, renewable for additional years by
mutual consent. The position is available starting immediately. For
further information or to apply, please contact:

Post-doct Simulation : MOFs (Metal Organic Framework materials) as
potentials nanovectors for drug delivery



This project will aim to develop a modelling tool which starting from a
biology need, is able to predict the structure and chemical composition of
porous metal organic frameworks (MOFs) and zeolites materials. The
predicted
properties of these new materials will be confronted with their performance
in biological tests realised by our experimentalist collaborators. For
instance, MOFs with metallic systems (Fe, Ti...) are expected to possess a
good biocompatibility according to the low toxicity of isolated compounds.
In addition, the first preliminary in vivo toxicity test of some iron
carboxylates MOFs confirmed the non toxicity of these solids.

The target application is the use of this material for the controlled drug
release. There is a strong need to develop new methods for controlling the
drug release for a prolonged and better control of drug administration. The
traditional "organic route" uses bio-compatible polymers while the
"inorganic route" uses zeolites or mesoporous silicate materials. In the
first case, most drugs can be encapsulated but a controlled release is
difficult to achieve without a defined porosity. In the second case, this
release requires a grafting of organic molecules on the pore walls but with
a decrease in the drug loading capacity. The present project deals with a
third way: the 'hybrid' route with the use of MOFs for drug delivery.
Previous studies performed with Ibuprofen and the MIL-101 MOF clearly
indicates that high and regular porosity combined with the presence of
organic groups within the framework leads both to a high drug loading and a
controlled release. MOFs with large pores could thus successfully allow the
drug delivery of many pharmaceutical molecules of a high interest, such as
drugs that show a poor bioavailability due to their low stability or
solubility in water, and/or toxicity phenomena due to their side effects

In terms of computational techniques, in a first step, classical (Monte
Carlo and adequate forcefields) and quantum computational techniques
will be
combined to tackle the adsorption of each type of biological molecules
within the host material to deepen understand the host/biological guest
molecules. The aim of this task will be to define which are the most
adapted
MOFs materials for the encapsulation of pharmaceutical molecules such as
busulfan, and ibuprofen and to get structural and energetic information on
this host/guest molecules. Further, the influence of functionalised groups
on the organic linker will be investigated in order to establish the most
adapted chemical features of the MOF materials. This step will be combined
with experimental data extracted from Microcalorimetry, Raman and NMR.



One other possible way to explore this field will be to develop a
Quantitative Structure Activity Relationship (QSAR) method widely used
since
the last years for designing new drug delivery systems and provide insight
into biological activity (protein recognition) and pharmaceutical
formulation. From the experimental data collected for the adsorption of
biological molecules on model MOFs, the objective will be to establish
mathematical relationships which correlate biological molecules specific
variables with physicochemical properties and molecular descriptors of the
hybrid solids including the structure, the pore size, the nature of the
metal, organic linkers and grafting ligands. The implementation of such a
multidisciplinary approach will allow us to build a unique predictive tool
able to tune innovative materials, thus avoiding the limiting factor of
time
required to perform the in vivo tests for a large series of materials. Such
tuned samples will be synthesized by our collaborators, and their
adsorption/release properties with respect to different biomolecules
will be
investigated in order to confirm (validate)/infirm the simulations. These
new results will be then used as additional input to improve the statistics
and thus refine our future predictions.



This work will be conducted in strong interactions with academic
experimentalists and an industrial company SANOFI. Funding is provided by
both industry and an European project.





Positions available for 12 or 24 months (starting date can be easily
discussed)



Salary : 2100 euros/month net

Requirements : Expertise in quantum and classical techniques applied to
materials and possibly to biomolecules OR in QSAR statistical methods.

PhD position in the Nanochemistry Research Institute (NRI), Curtin
University of Technology, Perth, Western Australia

A fully funded PhD position is available to a suitably qualified
applicant to study structure property relations of inorganic polymers
(geopolymers) using molecular dynamics simulation methods.

Geopolymers are amorphous, aluminosilicate materials that are being
developed as a green alternative to ordinary Portland cement and can be
produced from a range of inorganic "waste" materials such as fly ash and
residues from mineral processing operations. The exothermic reaction
between the amorphous component of the source material and an alkaline
solution results in a poorly ordered array of aluminate and silicate
tetrahedra charge balanced by cations such as Na+, K+, Li+, and Ca2+.
Currently, there are no detailed models of the structure of geopolymer
materials at the molecular level.

The aim of this project is to determine the degree of short range
ordering within the geopolymer Al/Si matrix, how it is modified by the
addition of host metal ions, and how these changes influence physical
properties.

Interested applicants who have or expect to gain a degree in chemistry,
physics, materials science or related discipline should contact Prof
Kate Wright (kate@ivec.org) or A/Prof Nigel Marks (nigel@ivec.org) for
more details. Some experience with computational modeling is preferred.
Non-Australian candidates are welcome to apply.

MODELLING IONIC LIQUIDS:
Ionic systems with low melting temperature, previously called as room
temperature molten salts, are now simply called ionic liquids (ILs). In
the last decade, ILs have emerged as promising solvents for
environmentally friendly organic synthesis, electrodeposition, and
electrolytes for electrochemical devices. In fact, the most common
application of ILs is their use as alternative solvents in industrial
applications. Despite this technological interest, a detailed
microscopic view of the role played by the structure and the dynamics of
ILs as reaction media is still lacking.
Computer simulation has become a well-used method for studying ionic
liquids. Current state-of-the-art includes work right across the time
and length scales encompassing for instance, anisotropic single site
potentials, multi-site coarse-grained models and atomistic modelling.
The first generation of challenges has been met, and it is now possible
to make predictions for key materials properties of ILs and even to
investigate a chemical reaction therein. Our group (Theoretical and
Computational Group of REQUIMTE/ Centre of Chemistry of the University
of Porto - CEQUP) aims to address this issue by performing a theoretical
study for revealing the microscopic structure, thermodynamics, and
dynamics of pure ILs and interfaces of ILs with non-ILs.

Ph.D. student position
Thermal Transport in Complex Fluids

The flow of complex fluids such as molten plastics occurs in the fabrication of products ranging from soda bottles to microelectronic devices. Heat transfer in these flows plays a critical role in the design and operation of efficient processes as well as the properties of the final product. Beginning a decade ago, we have pioneered optical experiments directed towards understanding the coupling of heat transfer and fluid flow in polymeric materials. In particular, we have been making measurements of the thermal conductivity in flowing polymer liquids using a novel optical (light scattering) technique developed in our laboratory. The capabilities of this laboratory are unique. Details of the technique can be found in recent publications based on our research:

“Measurement of anisotropic energy transport in flowing polymers by using a holographic technique,” J.D. Schieber, D.C Venerus, V. Balasubramanian, K. Bush and S. Smoukov, Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci., 101, 13142_13146 (2004).

“Anisotropic thermal conduction in a polymer liquid subjected to shear flow,” D.C Venerus, J.D. Schieber, V. Balasubramanian, K. Bush and S. Smoukov, Phys. Rev. Lett., 93, 098301 (2004).

We have several ongoing projects funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) with openings for motivated students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in experimental research on thermal transport in complex fluids. The ideal student will have a background in chemical or mechanical engineering, materials science, or applied physics. Previous experience in rheology or optical experiments is a plus.

Prospective students are required to have a minimum combined GRE score of 1000 and Analytic Writing Score of 3. Applicants should be ready to provide a transcript of undergraduate grades and three letters of reference. Tuition is covered, and stipends begin at $18,000 per annum. Positions are available until filled, beginning as early as January 2009.

Interested candidates should contact either Professor David C. Venerus (venerus@iit.edu) or Professor Jay D. Schieber (schieber@iit.edu) and be prepared to send their curriculum vitae (with at least two references)
