Postdoc or Research Fellow Position in Attosecond Theory of Quantum Materials

ICFO - Institute of Photonic Sciences

Barcelona, Spain

The Attoscience and Ultrafast Optics research group at ICFO, led by Prof. Dr. Jens Biegert, is looking for a well-qualified and highly motivated young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment within the field of Attosecond X-ray Science and Quantum Materials. We are seeking an applicant with strong theoretical background in x-ray science and condensed matter physics or AMO. Ideal would be versatility with density functional, x-ray absorption and molecular dynamics codes, and desirable would be a background in machine learning.

Project description:

The objective of our research is gaining unprecedented insight into the real-time electronic and nuclear dynamics of molecular transformations and phase transitions with advanced new methodologies and a multi-faceted approach to the investigation. The project exploits our pioneering achievements in attosecond soft X-ray spectroscopy (XAFS) to investigate the charge excitation and coupling to the lattice in real time. The purpose of this position is the theoretical description and investigation of exciton dynamics, electronic and structural phase-transitions, and electron phonon coupling in systems such as TMDCs and organic semiconductors.

Environment:

The applicant will join our group which consists of a highly motivated and dynamic team of international scientists with state-of-the art support. Specifically, the successful applicant will join our attosecond soft x-ray team and draw from a strong network of international theory collaborators and groups at ICFO. We are also embedded in several prominent national, European and international networks and collaborations, which ensures a vibrant and stimulating research environment and prominent exposure.

Eligibility and Conditions:

  • Candidates must hold an internationally-recognized Ph.D. -equivalent degree (or evidence of its completion in the nearest future) preferably in physics;
  • Experience with some density functional theory, x-ray absorption and molecular dynamics software is required and experience with machine learning is beneficial;
  • The candidate should be fluent in English, have a diligent work ethics and interested in cross disciplinary work between experimentalists and theorists.
