Postdoc position in molecular transport theory, Inst. of Physics, Prague

 

One postdoc position is available now in the Molecular Transport group to work on single molecule transport theory. The position is fully funded by a grant from the Czech Science Agency.

 

The aim is to develop efficient methods based on DFT and NEGF to calculate conductance in metal-molecule-metal systems and to apply these new methods to different molecular junctions.  The applicant will work closely with a PhD student and a postdoc in the group.

 

Candidates should have a PhD in physics or similar field with expertise in electronic structure or transport simulations. Preference will be given to candidates with programming skills (fortran, python) or experience with SIESTA/TranSIESTA.

 

We offer a great working and scientific environment, participation in international conferences and the possibility to collaborate with experimental and theoretical groups.

 

Applicants should send a cover letter, CV and publication list and the names of at least two references. Consideration of candidates will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.  For more information, visit http://www.fzu.cz/~vazquez/ or contact vazquez@fzu.cz
