Two Postdoc positions in condensed Matter Theory

CNRS and Universite P. et M. Curie, Paris, France

Title: Optical, Transport and superconducting properties in 2D materials

We are offering two postdoc positions (two years positions each) at the University P. et M. Curie in Paris. The positions are available from now and have to be filled within October 2015. The candidates will join the team "Theorie Quantique des Materiaux" at the Institut de Mineralogie et de Physique des Millieux Condendensees, CNRS and Universite P. et M. Curie in Paris.

The candidates will work in the field of 2D materials composed by few atomic layers such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides. They will carry out first principles and analytical calculations to understand the physical properties of these materials, including understanding of optical data, investigation of charge density wave, superconductivity and metal-insulator transition.

Ideally, the candidate should have a solid background in condensed matter physics and a good experience in electronic structure calculation. One of the candidate should have experience in GW and Bethe-Salpeter calculations and possibly should be a developer of existing GW/BS codes. In general, experience in methodological developments of first principles approaches is highly appreciated.

Interested candidates can apply electronically (CV including full publication list and references) by sending an e-mail to:

A decision will be taken most likely before the end of the summer.
