2 post-doc positions available on: « Quantum Si ... (No replies)
Location: National Research Council (CNR), Pisa (Tuscany), Italy.
Time frame: Start around March 2019 – 1 year term, renewable up to 3 years
2 post-doc positions are available funded by a recently approved FET-Open project: "Quantum Engineering for Machine Learning" (acronym: QUEFORMAL) within the call: H2020-FETOPEN-01-2018-2019-2020. The topic is Quantum Mechanical (QM) simulations supporting fabrication and engineering of devices combining hetero-structures of 2-dimensional materials (2DMs) into low-voltage field-effect transistors and non-volatile memories.
The FET-Open project QUEFORMAL1 involves 2 theory groups (CNR, Pisa, Italy, and University of Pisa, Italy, coordinator), 2 experimental groups (EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland, and University of Bundeswehr-München, Germany), and 2 European SMEs (AMO, http://www.amo-gmbh.com/en/, and Quantavis, http://www.quantavis.com/). The final goal of QUEFORMAL is to develop a novel transport technology based on 2D heterostructures. The CNR unit will deal with first-principles atomistic simulations of materials and devices based on 2D lateral and vertical heterostructures. The targets are: (i) to provide QM-derived data on such materials and interfaces to be fed into higher-level models thus allowing predictive simulations of phase transformation and transport phenomena. and ii) to shed light on the atomistic origin of fundamental materials properties to guide materials design.
