Closing Date : February 26
Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and
MPI of Microstructure Physics
Martin Luther University and MPI of Microstructure Physics are closelyconnected in research projects concerning electronic, magnetic and structural properties of nanostructures. We are especially interested in the theoretical study of electronic and magnetic properties of metallic nanostructures on different surfaces. Properties like exchange interaction of adatoms can be modified by quantum confinement. The engineering of such effects will be important for applications in the future. The calculations areperformed using various ab initio methods.
The applicant should have good knowledge of solid state theory. Applicants with a background in calculations using methods like (KKR; FLAPW,VASP, ABINIT) are especially encouraged to apply.
The studentship lasts three years and can start 1st of April. For excellent applicants a postdoctoral position would be considered.
Both institutes are seeking to increase the quota of woman scientists. Therefore, woman are especially encouraged to apply.Handicapped applicants will be given preference to others of equal qualification.
The deadline for application is 26 of February.
Please send a covered letter, detailed CV and information about your experience in solid state theory, ab initio methods and computing as well as three academic references to:
