PostDoc position in theory and modelling of quantum transport in low-dimensional nanomaterials (Empa)
Empa is looking for highly motivated and talented candidates with a strong theoretical background in solid state physics, theoretical quantum physics or atomistic ab initio modelling to take up a challenging PostDoc position in the computational modelling of quantum transport in low-dimensional carbon nanomaterials. In this project, which is closely linked to the experimental activity of several Empa laboratories, density functional theory (DFT), non-equilibrium Green's functions formalism (NEGF) and dynamical mean field theory (DMFT) are combined to include electronic correlation and screening in transport calculations for molecular junctions and nanodevices.
Two open positions: BIG-MAP and MARVEL postdocs/software engineers (EPFL)
Two open positions for postdocs/software engineers are available at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland). The positions are renewable yearly up to 4 years. Outstanding candidates are sought with a background in the physical sciences, with strong programming skills, and with experience in scientific software development and running materials simulations in high performance computing systems.
Postdoc position in theory and modelling of quantum spin phases in low-dimensional carbon nanomaterials (Empa)
Empa's [email protected] laboratory is offering a postdoc position in theory and modelling of quantum spin phases in low-dimensional carbon nanomaterials. In this project, which is strongly connected to the experimental activity of the laboratory, ab-initio simulation techniques based on density functional theory and quantum chemistry methods as well as methods based on spin model Hamiltonians will be employed to study the electronic and magnetic properties of nanographenes, graphene nanoribbons and nanographene-based spin chains and lattices, and to rationalize the results of scanning probe experiments related to them.
