The Materials Theory Group at ETH Zurich has the following opening for a PhD student with an expected starting time-frame of Summer/Fall 2020.
The combination of density functional theory (DFT) with dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT) opens up new possibilities to explore materials where electronic correlation effects are crucial (e.g., materials close to a Mott metal-insulator transition).
The focus of this PhD project will be to adopt the DFT+DMFT approach for the study of materials with strong coupling between electronic and structural degrees of freedom, with the goal of enabling both qualitative as well as quantitative predictions about the resulting emergent properties.
We look forward to receiving your online application with the following documents:
There is no deadline for applications. We are constantly reviewing incoming applications until a suitable candidate has been identified.
Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
