Post-Doctoral Researcher (f/m/d) for the QUTIF-project "SOLSTICE"
The Max Planck Society is Germany‘s premier research organization. The 83 Max Planck Institutes conduct research at
highest levels, in the service of the general public, in the natural sciences, life sciences, social sciences, and the humanities.
The Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg investigates dynamical phenomena
within matter, studying processes on the elementary time- and length-scales of atomic and electronic motions: the
femtosecond or attosecond timescale and Ångström length scale
The Institute is also a partner in the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL), collaborating with the Deutsches
Elektronen Synchrotron (DESY) and the University of Hamburg for the development of science based on the X-ray Free
We are seeking for the QUTIF-project "SOLSTICE" a
Post-Doctoral Researcher (m/f/d)
The successful candidate will represent the Theory Department a DFG-funded project SOLSTICE, a joint theoreticalexperimental
effort to understand the strong-field response of novel quantum materials, and in particular in the generation
of high-order harmonics. The main contribution of the Theory Department and the main task of the candidate will be to
perform and further develop first-principles calculations for solids and two-dimensional materials, including stronglycorrelated
and topological materials in the framework of time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT), possibly
complemented by an ab initio Hubbard U (TDDFT+U). The simulations focus on the importance of correlations, topology, as
well as the confinement for two-dimensional materials.
The SOLSTICE project been a joint experiment-theory effort, the theoretical simulations will be done in direct link with the
experiments performed at the CFEL, in the Group of Franz Kärtner. This position offers the possibility to gain insight in the
structure and planning of an experimental work, and the organization of cooperation projects.
You must have university degree in a relevant subject plus PhD in physics or related field. You should have a strong record
with notable achievements in theoretical physics, experience and ample knowledge in first-principles calculations with
density-functional and related methods for molecular or solid-state systems and a working knowledge of optical properties.
We also expect willingness to work in a third-party funded project which implies working in an international environment and
complying with obligations towards the funding partners such as dissemination and reporting.
Furthermore, experience within the following categories is beneficial:
Programming and software development for high-performance computing
Strongly correlated materials
We offer an innovative environment, which will give you the opportunity to develop your own ideas embedded in the Center
for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL). We offer a position according to the German public pay scale (TVöD). The
appointment is for one year and a half.
The Max Planck society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore
encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
We look forward to your application.
Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are
underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
To apply, please complete the online application form and attach your English CV and motivation letter as well as a list of
three possible contacts for reference letters latest
