Post-doctoral researcher (f/m/d) Theory and Computation for Light-Matter Coupled Solids
Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter
The Max Planck Society is Germany's premier research organization. The 83 Max Planck Institutes conduct research at highest levels, in the service of the general public, in the natural sciences, life sciences, social sciences, and the humanities.
The Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) investigates dynamical phenomena within matter, studying processes on the elementary time- and length-scales of atomic and electronic motions: the femtosecond or attosecond timescale and Angström length scale.
The Institute is also a partner in the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL), collaborating with the Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron (DESY) and the University of Hamburg for the development of science based on the X-ray Free Electron Lasers.
We are looking for a
Post-doctoral researcher (m/f/d): Theory and Computation for Light-Matter Coupled Solids
The position is based within the Emmy Noether Research Group "Theoretical Description of Pump-Probe Spectroscopies in Solids"
(https://www.mpsd.mpg.de/516577/michael_sentef) and involves the theory and computation of light-matter coupled solids.
The project aims at a microscopic theoretical modelling of correlated 2D materials (superconductors, charge-density wave systems, excitonic insulators)
in the presence of light-matter coupling from the classical nonequilibrium regime of strong laser pulses towards the quantum-electrodynamical regime achieved
in cavity settings. Recent works in this direction can be found on the group website. The goal is to identify and predict experimentally relevant settings under
which light-induced new phases of matter and control of elementary couplings in solids are possible. The successful applicant will work in a highly international
and interdisciplinary environment with connection to experiments.
Your background and skills:
Candidates should have received a PhD in theoretical physics and/or computational solid-state physics no more than four years prior to the start date of the position. A solid knowledge of state-of-the-art modeling of correlated materials is required. Experience in one of the following is expected: ab initio DFT calculations, many-body perturbation theory and nonequilibrium Keldysh Green's functions methods, or techniques for correlated many-body systems (DMFT, DMRG/MPS, tensor nets, variational wavefunctions, quantum Monte Carlo). Numerical skills and experience in code development and running parallelized MPI/OpenMP calculations on clusters would be advantageous.
We offer a position according to the German public pay scale (TVöD) grade E13. The position is for two years starting September 1, 2019, or later. There are no teaching duties attached to this position.
The Max Planck Society strives for gender and diversity equality. We welcome applications from all backgrounds.
Furthermore, the Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
If you are interested in this position, please submit your application including a one page research statement, curriculum vitae and three letters of reference
by 21st of May, 2019.
