1 year PostDoc position in DIAMANT—Diamond based atomic nanotechnologies EU FP7 collaborative project

Job Summary

Applications are invited for 1 year PostDoc position link to a 3-year project on the
topic “Diamond based atomic nanotechnologies” as a part of a European Union FP7
collaborative project. The project will be conducted with the Adam Gali Nano Research
Group in the Research Institute for the Solid State Physics and Optics of the Hungarian
Academy of Sciences in Budapest. Adam Gali Nano Research Group works tightly with
experimental research groups in Europe and USA within the frame of this EU project that
lead cutting-edge research in the area of solid state quantum information processing and
atomic scale magnetometry realized by deep point defects in solids. The aim of the research
is to develop methods and study such paramagnetic color centers in diamond and related
wide band gap materials by means of first principles calculations.

Job Description

We are looking for a highly qualified candidate that has strong solid state physics
background and experience in point defect studies by means of quantum mechanical
calculations. Deep knowledge on modeling of point defects in solids by plane wave supercell
codes (particularly, VASP code and/or pwscf code) as well as scientific programming is
essential. The successful candidate will work on identification and characterization of color
centers in diamond and related wide band gap materials, where the electronic structure, the
fine magnetic properties (like hyperfine tensors, zero field splitting, etc.) and the ionization
and excitation energies of the appropriate color centers will be determined by density
functional theory methods and beyond. Experience in the application of time-dependent
DFT and/or GW+BSE methods on point defects is an advantage. The candidate should prove
the ability to work independently, write scientific papers and cooperate with experimental
physicists. Consideration of candidates will begin immediately until the position is filled.

Applications and further information inquires should be addressed to Prof. Adam Gali
(contact details below).

Applications should include a letter of motivation, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications,
and a full contact of two referees (or letters of recommendation).

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
