Post-doctor position in condensed matter theory/materials theory
Sort on published: 2017-02-10
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.
At the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Research area: Materials theory.
The Division of Materials Theory is known to have a world-class research environment ranging from ab-initio electronic structure calculations of functional materials and strongly correlated electron systems to non-equilibrium phenomena and topological states of matter. Besides the usage of existing state-of-the-art computational codes, development of new methods and computational techniques is done in this division, 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, non-equilibrium Greens function formalism for transport properties, topological physics, atomistic spin-dynamics, ultra-fast magnetisation dynamics, quantum entanglements, graphene and 2D materials, materials for sustainable energy solutions, materials at high pressure, nanobiophysics, unconventional superconductivity, elastic and inelastic scattering of electrons, and spintronics.
We now seek a post-doc that can take part in any of these activities. The successful candidate will work with researchers within the division, both in collaborative projects as well as exploring her/his own research ideas.
The applicant is expected to have a PhD degree in Physics (that is no older than three years), 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 link to the thesis (Phd or Master in case the PhD-thesis is not available yet), published articles or other relevant materials. Also, e-mail addresses of two reference persons should be included.
The Postdoc position is open for two years.
Uppsala University is striving to achieve a more even gender balance and women are especially encouraged to apply.
