A postdoc position is open in the field of condensed matter physics and material science and is available at the Institute of Physics, Zagreb (Croatia).
Fully-funded Postdoc in theoretical condensed matter physics
Group leader: Dino Novko
Institution: Institute of Physics, Zagreb, Croatia
Postdoc position in condensed matter physics and material science is available at the Institute of Physics, Zagreb (Croatia) for a fixed period until 14.01.2025. (with the possibility of extension up to a maximum of two years) and related to the implementation of the CSF project “Study of phonon-assisted processes in quasi-two-dimensional materials” (UIP-2019-04-6869). The goal of the research is to theoretically examine dynamical aspects of electron-phonon coupling in various two-dimensional and bulk materials (such as graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides, and various perovskites) by means of novel first-principles methods. More specifically, the plan is to perform the research of ordered phases such as the superconducting state and charge density waves and their interplay, the influence of non-equilibrium and non-adiabatic processes on the electron-phonon interaction and the aforementioned ordered phases, and plasmon-phonon coupling in non-adiabatic systems. The required
methods that will be used include density functional theory and many-body perturbation theory.
