Post-Doctoral Position in Atomic Scale Simulation at EPFL (Lausanne)

(date of announcement: 19/02/2019)

There is currently a post-doctoral position available for a talented and motivated individual in computational condensed matter physics within the Chair of Atomic-Scale Simulation (CSEA) at EPFL in Lausanne. The position is available immediately. Research themes pursued in the research group focus on defects, semiconductor-oxide interfaces, semiconductor-liquid interfaces, photocatalytic water splitting, electrochemistry, metal organic frameworks, and materials design optimization. Within these research themes, suitable research projects are identified according to the interest and inclination of the successful applicant. Computational tools used in the research group involve advanced electronic structure calculations at the GW and hybrid-functional levels and ab initio molecular dynamics simulations. The CSEA at EPFL benefits from outstanding computational facilities.

The post-doc appointment is initially for one year and could be extended for a second one depending on mutual agreement and funding. Previous experience with advanced electronic-structure calculations is requested. The appointment involves teaching duties at EPFL. The interested post-doc candidate should send (in PDF-format) their

  1. curriculum vitae (including nationality, date of birth, civil state, and achieved degrees),
  2. publication list, and
  3. one reprint of representative previous research.

The interested post-doc candidate should also express their motivation in a cover letter, including the prospected date of availability, and arrange confidential letters of recommendation to be sent to Alfredo Pasquarello by email (Alfredo.Pasquarello @ Only complete applications will be processed. The selection process will continue until a suitable candidate is found.
