Job Description

Computational materials science for the study of quantum materials for microelectronic applications (Materials Science Division): Excellent candidates with a background in solid-state chemistry/physics and first-principles simulations of materials, in particular calculation of excited state properties, are invited to apply. Major duties and responsibilities include the use of advanced electronic structure methods and quantum simulations to model and predict the properties of complex, heterogeneous insulators and semiconductors for the realization of novel microelectronic devices for high density memory.

A strong background in computational condensed matter physics and/or materials chemistry is required, including density functional theory and many-body perturbation theory. Previous experience with first-principles materials simulation codes (such as Quantum Espresso, Qbox, WEST) is preferred. The research will be in close collaboration with experimental colleagues and previous collaborations with experimental groups is desirable.

This position requires a Ph.D. in physics, chemistry, materials science or a related field of research. The position will be under the direction of Prof. Giulia Galli and will be in close collaboration with experimental colleagues. Further information on research activities in the Galli group are available at https://galligroup.uchicago.edu/Research/quantum.php
