PhD Dft+dmft Approach to Complex Materials Systems

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD position at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. This position is open until filled.

The Materials Theory Group at ETH Zrich has the following opening for a PhD student with an expected starting time-frame of Summer 2019. new position.Development and application of the DFT+DMFT approach to complex materials systems. 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. Previous exposure to quantum mechanical many-body theory and experience in phython programming is desirable.

A Master degree in Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry, or a closely related field is required.
