The Computational Materials Science group is a part of the Otto Schott Institute of Materials Research (OSIM) at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy of the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena.

The group is headed by Prof. Dr. Marek Sierka and a Junior Research Group leader Dr. Eva von Domaros.

Our research activities are focused on Computational and Digital Materials Science. Their central elements are the development and applications of cutting-edge approaches for the engineering of a broad range of novel functional materials with superior properties. 

The hallmark of our research program is close collaboration with experimental groups working in various disciplines of Materials Science, Physics, Engineering, and Chemistry to achieve this goal.
