Applications are invited for a PhD position (3 years) and a PostDoc position (1year) at the Institute of Theoretical and Computational Physics, Graz University of Technology.
The aim of the research project is to advance the development of high temperature superconductors by investigating a novel set of promising and application-relevant material systems using state-of-the-art DFT and DFPT code-packages. The project will be funded by the Intellectual Ventures Deep Science Fund.
The project will be carried out in Graz (Austria) through positions at the Graz University of Technology. They are scheduled for a duration of 3 years (PhD) and 1 year (PostDoc), with salary based on 40h/week according to the university’s policies.
Suitable candidates are highly motivated and have a Master or Diploma degree in Physics (for the PhD position) and a PhD degree in Physics (for the PostDoc position), an interest in the computational modeling of materials, and good practice in numerical methods, especially DFT methods, Matlab, and Fortran. To apply, send an email including a short letter of motivation, CV, and list of possible references to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’. Review of the job applications will begin immediately and continue until suitable candidates have been found.
About Graz University of Technology
As the name suggests, Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) is located in the centre of Graz, the second biggest city in Austria. With eight institutions of higher education, Graz is a real student city and is regarded as one of the cities of central Europe and the European Union with the highest quality of life.
Research activities at TU Graz range from top-quality basic research through application-driven basic research to industrial implementation. Outstanding research facilities, substantial external funding, knowledge transfer and English-language doctoral programmes create fertile ground for research. This is backed up by close ties to the scientific and business com- munities at home and abroad, as well as an innovation-friendly industrial environment. TU Graz plays a significant and leading role in COMET, an extensive Austrian research programme – this is reflected in the various research centres focusing on a range of topics at the university’s campus. On the international stage, TU Graz researchers are involved in approximately 60 EU H2020 projects (including seven ERC grants). A string of successful start-ups and spin-offs point to TU Graz’s long tradi- tion of ent...repreneurship which has helped to create more than 3,000 highly specialised jobs over the past 20 years.
