Applications are invited for a Marie Skłodowska Curie PhD position to work in the area of theoretical and computational modelling of the interplay between electron-electron and electron-phonon interactions in nanostructures. Closing date: July 21st, 2017.

The studentship is part of a cohort of 20 PhDs students of the Marie-Skłodowska-Curie-COFUND Actions recently awarded to Queen's University Belfast (QUB).

The project will be co-supervised by Dr Tchavdar Todorov and Dr Myrta Grüning from the School of Mathematics and Physics at QUB and will explore the combination of many-body theory with a method for correlated electron-ion dynamics, developed between QUB and collaborators in London. The aim is to produce both a deeper understanding and a working procedure for the simultaneous description of e-e and e-phonon dynamics in single-particle methods such as the Time-dependent Density Functional Theory and Hartree-Fock frameworks.

The project will also involve collaborations with partners at Imperial College London, Leiden University (the Netherlands), University College Irvine and Hunter College University New York (United States) and at the Italian Research Council in Rome.

The applicant should have a university degree in physics, chemistry or equivalent (minimum entry 2:1 Honour degree/equivalent).

Who can apply:

No restrictions on nationality. However, the applications should follow the mobility criteria determined on Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions work programme: the applicants shall not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization (the UK in this case) for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.

How to apply:

Interested applicants should complete an online application form, available from the following website at https://dap.qub.ac.uk/portal/user/u_login.php, providing an up-to-date CV, a letter of motivation, and the names and contact details of at least two academic referees.

Informal enquiries may be directed to Dr Tchavdar Todorov ([email protected]).
