Postdoctoral position in theoretical and computational condensed-matter physics
University of Missouri
August 2, 2018
Physics: Condensed Matter
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in theoretical and computational condensed-matter physics in the group of Prof. Carsten A. Ullrich at the University of Missouri. The main focus of the project will be to study excitonic effects in bulk and low-dimensional inorganic and organic materials using TDDFT and many-body techniques. Candidates should have experience in theoretical and computational condensed-matter physics and/or material science, should be well versed in DFT and Green’s function methods for electronic structure and optical properties of materials, and should have good programming and parallel computing skills.
Applications should include CV, list of publications, summary of research accomplishments, and the names and contact addresses of at least two references. Please send applications to Prof. Carsten Ullrich (firstname.lastname@example.org). For more information about the research group see http://faculty.missouri.edu/ullrichc.
The position is initially for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year. Targeted start date is September 1, 2018. Full consideration of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the position is filled. The University of Missouri is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and encourages applications from women and minority candidates.
About University of Missouri
The University of Missouri (MU) was founded in 1839 in Columbia as the first public university west of the Mississippi River. Today, with an enrollment of more than 30,000 students, 13,000 full-time employees and 317,000 alumni, MU is the flagship university of the state of Missouri. Based on quality of teaching, research and scholarship, MU is one of only 60 public and private U.S. universities invited to membership in the prestigious Association of American Universities. MU’s Department of Physics and Astronomy has exceptional strengths in experimental and theoretical condensed-matter physics and materials science, biophysics, and astrophysics. In addition, Columbia is consistently ranked as one of the top college towns in the U.S. in terms of affordability and quality of life.
