Open Positions

There are currently  no open positions for Ph.D. studentsThis may change by Fall 2021.

The application deadline for the MSE PhD program is December 15 2020 for Fall 2021. It is also possible to join the group through the Chemistry PhD program and the Physics PhD program. Note that for all three programs admission decisions are made by a departmental committee, not by individual professors, and admitted students are not preassigned to advisors. Admitted students interested in computational research may join any of the computational groups in the department (including affiliated groups from other departments) upon their arrival at CMU.


M.S. students interested in pursuing research in computational materials science may contact Prof. Marom if already admitted to CMU. Others may apply to the MSE Master of Science program. The deadline for Fall 2021 is January 15, 2021.


Short term research projects for physics students: First year PhD students in the Department of Physics who wish to pursue computational research to fulfill the short term research requirement may contact Prof. Marom. A two-semester commitment is requested.


There are open positions for undergraduate students starting in Summer 2021. Interested students should email Prof. Marom their transcript, resume, and a statement of purpose explaining their interest in pursuing research in computational materials science in relation to their past experience and future goals. Students interested in summer research are advised to apply for SURF or SURA.


There are currently no open postdoc positions.


Note: Prof. Marom will not respond to inquiries if there are no open positions in your category.
