APCTP, Pohang, South Korea
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the Junior Research Group "Electronic structure and magnetism" of Igor Di Marco at the Asia-Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP), Pohang, South Korea.
APCTP, founded in 1996, is a non-governmental organization aiming for an international center dedicated to excellence in research and the training of young scientists in the Asia-Pacific region. APCTP offers a great research environment with strong connections to a number of active theoretical and experimental research groups at the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH). APCTP has broad international agreements with many leading institutions around the globe for scientific exchanges.
The research projects associated to this position will be decided with respect to the skills and aptitudes of the selected candidate, among the following research topics:
* electronic and magnetic properties of strongly correlated materials;
* development of computational methods based on density-functional theory (DFT) and dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT);
* development of theoretical methods for angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES), X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS);
* construction of a database of electronic properties of rare-earth compounds.
A more detailed description of research, group members and group leader can be found on the group webpage.
The ideal candidate should have a PhD in Condensed Matter Physics, Theoretical Chemistry or Materials Science and have demonstrated an excellent scientific record of publications. The candidate should have a good knowledge of solid state physics, many-body physics and/or magnetism. Previous experience in electronic structure calculations and/or many-body models is required. Previous programming experience in Fortran or C is an advantage.
The appointment is initially for one year, but can be extended up to two additional years, depending on outcome and funding. The starting date for the position should fall during September or October 2019. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
