There is always an opportunity for truly talented and motivated students (project, master and Ph.D.) and postdocs. But our bar regarding skills in theoretical physics and/or program development is very high. If you think you qualify please send your CV to Prof. Karsten Held. Prospective research areas are:
- Computational Materials Science
- Many-Body Quantum Field Theory
- Strongly correlated electron systems
- Artificial Intelligence and big data
For Bachelor, project and Master thesis see our wiki page:
Ph.D. Solid State Theory
There are vacancies for two Ph.D. students (3 years) in Vienna.
The aim of the first project within the SFB Q-M&S is employing quantum information measures as a new angle of understanding solid state physics, such as quantum critical points and the Zhang-Rice singlet.
The second project is on vertex corrections to the conductivity and the novel nickelate superconductors.
We have pioneered the density functional theory + dynamical mean-field theory (DFT+DMFT) approach and invented the dynamical vertex approximation (DГA), which form the basis for both projects.
We offer a research topic at the scientific forefront in an international and vivid research environment. Vienna is a favorable location as regards culture and nature.
