PhD Positions in Computational Condensed Matter Physics
are available in the Kuneš group at the Institute of Physics, ASCR in Prague (Czech Republic).
The positions are funded by the ERC Consolidator grant (project
EXMAG). The project is focused on numerical investigations of ordering
phenomena in Hubbard-type models and/or real materials. The work will
involve development and application of numerical methods based on
dynamical mean-field theory and/or density functional theory.
Successful applicant(s) should have M.Sc. or equivalent degree in
physics or quantum chemistry, be fluent in English and be able to write
computer codes in Fortran or C++. Interested candidates with a
background in computer science or numerical mathematics will also be
considered. Experience with numerical simulations of quantum lattice or
impurity problems, or with density functional theory are welcome.
Applicants should send their CV, transcript (academic record) and a letter of interest to Jan Kuneš (firstname.lastname@example.org).
They should also arrange for one letter of reference to be sent to the
same address. The review of applications will start on June 20, 2015 and
continue until the positions are filled.
The duration of the contract will be four years with initial
appointment for one year. The salary is commensurate with similar
positions on German universities.
