Postdoc position in solid state theory/materials theory
Sort on published: 2018-01-17
Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 42,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6.7 billion.
The Division of Materials Theory is known to have a world-class research environment in the ab-initio electronic structure theory coupled to research on solid state phenomena and research on materials properties. Besides the usage of existing state-of-the-art computational codes, development of new methods and computational techniques is done in this department, in connection to developments of analytical tools and investigations using model Hamiltonians. Activities in the department involve correlated electronic structures and dynamical mean field theory (DMFT), topological physics, atomistic lattice- and spin-dynamics, ultra-fast magnetisation dynamics, quantum entanglements, graphene and 2D materials. We now seek a post-doctor that can take part in these activities, primarily strengthening the development of methods for electronic structures, where a background in DMFT, TD-DFT, pseudopotential theory, and QMC is a merit.
The applicant is expected to have, at the starting date of the position, and obtained no more than three years prior to the application deadline, a PhD degree in Physics, or equivalent, with a good background in solid-state theory/materials theory. The application should include a statement of research interest, CV, certificates of exams, degrees and grades, a copy of the doctoral thesis, published articles or relevant materials, if available. Also, letter(s) of recommendation can be included.
Uppsala University strives to be an inclusive workplace that promotes equal opportunities and attracts qualified candidates who can contribute to the University’s excellence and diversity. We welcome applications from all sections of the community and from people of all backgrounds.
