The Division of Materials Theory is known to have a world-class research environment in the ab-initio electronic structure theory coupled to research on solid state phenomena and research on materials properties. Besides the usage of existing state-of-the-art computational codes, development of new methods and computational techniques is done in this department, in connection to developments of analytical tools and investigations using model Hamiltonians. Activities in the department involve correlated electronic structures and dynamical mean field theory (DMFT), topological physics, atomistic lattice- and spin-dynamics, ultra-fast magnetisation dynamics, quantum entanglements, graphene and 2D materials. We now seek a post-doc that can take part in these activities, primarily strengthening the development of methods for electronic structures, where a background in DMFT, TD-DFT, pseudopotential theory, and QMC is a merit.

The applicant is expected to have, at the starting date of the position, a PhD degree in Physics, or equivalent, with a good background in solid-state theory/materials theory. The application should include a statement of research interest, CV, certificates of exams, degrees and grades, a copy of the PhD thesis, published articles or relevant materials, if available. Also, letter(s) of recommendation can be included.

The Postdoc position is open for two years.

Uppsala University is striving to achieve a more even gender balance and women are especially encouraged to apply.

Union representatives are Anders Grundström, SACO, phone +46 18 471 5380, Carin Söderhäll, TCO/ST, phone +46 18  471 1996 and Stefan Djurström, SEKO, phone +46 18 471 3315

The application should be sent to: Registrator, UFV-PA 2009/2022, Uppsala Universitet, Box 256, 751 05 UPPSALA, Sweden; fax: +46-(0)18-4712000 or e-mail: [email protected].

Deadline: March 15th, 2018. If the application is submitted by fax or e-mail the originals should follow within one week after the application deadline.
