The Atomistic Materials Modeling group of Prof. Erik Bitzek is inviting applications for doctoral students in the area of Computational
Materials Science to join the Institute for General Materials Properties within the Department of Materials Science of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität
Erlangen-Nürnberg in Erlangen, Germany.
Research topics include:
  • Mechanical properties of nanoscale structures (nano-wires, -particles, thin films) and small scale plasticity
  • Atomistic studies of topological anisotropy and mechanical properties of silicate glasses within the Priority Program "Topological
    Engineering of Ultra-strong Glasses" (SPP 1594) of the German Research foundation DFG
The successful candidate will hold a Masters degree, preferably in Physics or Materials Science, and have a solid knowledge of the structure
and mechanical properties of materials. Experience in scientific programming is required. In addition, experience with Molecular Dynamics simulations is highly
desirable. Excellent oral and written communication skills (English and German) and the ability to work well in a dynamic and collaborative international research
environment are essential. The PhD candidates will be enrolled in the graduate school of the cluster of excellence "Engineering of Advanced Materials" which provides
doctoral researchers with special training through short courses on experimental and simulation methods as well as on leadership skills development.
Applicants are asked to submit their curriculum vitae with names and contact information of two references to:

The way to AMINEF in Gedung Balai Pustaka

American Indonesian Exchange Foundation
Balai Pustaka Building, 6th. Floor

Jakarta 10720, Indonesia

1. The buses which goes to Senen Bus Station all of them pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. Especially which route is through Pasar Baru .

2. Bus Transjakarta, from Blok M you have to change the bus 2-3 times.
Way 1 : from Blok M change the bus in Dukuh Atas bus stop to the bus towards Pulogadung, then take a bus in Pramuka bus stop towards Ancol, this bus pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. The closest bus stop (Budi Utomo) is about 800 meters from Gedung Balai .
Way 2 : From Blok M take the bus in the Harmoni Bus Stop, the bus towards Pulogadung, get down in Senen Bus Stop and walk about 800 meters, or from this bus stop take the bus towards Ancol and get down as mentioned in way 1. About the distance, this two bus stops is about the same. (It is better if you take ojek or bajaj from this bus stop to Gedung Balai Pustaka)

3. If you take taxi with old tariff (TL=Tarif Lama) from blok M with no traffic jam is about Rp. 30.000,00.

4. From Blok M use bus Patas AC 76. Gedung Balai Pustaka is in the right side, after you pass through Depag, and say to conductor "Balai Pustaka"

5. Use a busway from Blok M towards Kota, get down in Sawah Besar bus stop. From here take a Mikrolet M12 towards Senen. After cross road Wahidin and before senen get down and cross the street.
