  • Joint tenure-track professorship in computational physics: light/matter interactions or non-equilibrium quantum dynamics (UniFR/PSI/MARVEL)

    The Faculty of Science and Medicine of the University of Fribourg and the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) jointly invite applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Computational Physics in the Department of Physics, and in the Scientific Computing, Theory and Data Division of the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). The selected candidate must have an outstanding record of successful independent research in the field of light/matter interactions or non-equilibrium quantum dynamics. She/he is expected to build synergies with the Department of Physics in Fribourg and with the Paul Scherer Institute (PSI) and its various large-scale research facilities, in particular the Swiss Free Electron Laser. The candidate is expected to develop a vigorous, internationally recognized research program that is supported by a significant amount of external funding, and to lead the research activities of a group of graduate students/postgraduate researchers.

  • Group leader, Materials Software and Data - PSI/MARVEL

    Within its new research division Scientific Computing, Theory and Data, the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) is establishing a number of laboratories dedicated to the development and application of the computational and data capabilities that can support and enhance the activities of PSI. The Laboratory for Materials Simulations, directed by Professor Nicola Marzari, and in close collaboration with MARVEL, will be hosting three groups aimed at developing, integrating and disseminating in the PSI community and the scientific community at large the computational capabilities required to understand, predict, and characterize materials studied at PSI with photons, neutrons, muons and electrons.PSI is looking for a group leader for the group on "Materials Software and Data".
