Job announcements

  • Postdoc position in the field of ab-initio GW+DMFT simulation (UniFR)

    Philipp Werner (UniFR) is looking for a postdoctoral researcher with a strong background in ab-initio simulations and/or strongly correlated electron systems, to work on a project related to GW+DMFT simulations of correlated materials. GW+DMFT is a parameter-free simulation approach which provides a consistent treatment of correlations and screening in solids. The plan is to extend this method into a widely usable ab-initio framework for the study of equilibrium and nonequilibrium properties of materials. 

  • Two postdoctoral positions: Spectral properties on accelerated architectures (EPFL)

    Two positions for computational physicists/computer scientists are available at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Lausanne, Switzerland) in the group of Prof. Nicola Marzari. The positions are supported by the Swiss Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC) and are renewable yearly; current funding is for 3 years each. If so desired, a possible working location at the Paul Scherrer Institute (Villigen) in the newly created Laboratory for Materials Simulations may be possible.

  • Joint Faculty Position in Mathematics & Materials (EPFL)

    The School of Basic Sciences and the School of Engineering at EPFL seek to appoint a Tenure Track Assistant Professor or a Tenured Associate Professor jointly between the Institute of Mathematics and the Institute of Materials. We have a keen interest in outstanding candidates whose research is dedicated to the development of mathematical theory (analytical, geometrical, numerical, computational/algorithmic, topological) underpinning the description of materials. Ideal candidates would have a strong interdisciplinary breadth rather than focus on specific subfields. Indicative fields of interest include, but are not restricted to, multi-scale modelling, topological properties of materials, metamaterials, soft matter, efficient and accurate electronic-structure algorithms, statistical mechanics of emergent phenomena, numerical methods for very high dimensional problems, theory of data-driven algorithms applied to materials discovery.

  • Assistant professor of physics, artificial intelligence for quantum materials and quantum information science

    As part of a campus-wide artificial intelligence (AI) faculty hiring initiative at the University of Florida (UF), the Department of Physics has an opening for a full-time, nine-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor in artificial intelligence for quantum materials and quantum information science to begin on August 16, 2022. We seek highly qualified candidates from all areas of computational quantum materials and quantum information sciences, with demonstrated experience in developing, implementing or applying AI algorithms on modern platforms such as GPU. 

  • Professor in Physics of Imaging (EPFL) / Head of Mathematics and Physics of Imaging (PSI)

    The School of Basic Sciences of EPFL and the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) invite applications for a tenured professor at EPFL who will also be Leader of a new group at PSI devoted to advancing new physical and mathematical methods for imaging at PSI. The holder of this joint EPFL-PSI position will develop new imaging paradigms inspired by disciplines ranging from quantum technologies to data science to fully exploit the new high brilliance X-ray sources SLS 2.0 and SwissFEL.

  • Head, Laboratory for Simulation and Modeling (PSI) / Full Professor, Applied Computational Mathematics (EPFL)

    The Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI), Switzerland’s largest research institute for natural and engineering sciences, and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) are jointly seeking to appoint a dynamic personality with strategic thinking abilities as Head of the Laboratory for Simulation and Modeling (LSM) at PSI, and as tenured Full Professor of Applied and Computational Mathematics at EPFL. This is a full-time position.
