Post-doctoral Fellowship at Nanogune on first-principles materials

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

Applications are invited for an up to 2-year post-doctoral position based at CIC Nanogune (Theory Group) to work in the area of computational methods for electric structure and for materials research and optimization. The position is associated with the E-INFRA5 Centre of Excellence E-CAM and in particular with the work in Work Package 2 – Electronic Structure. The position is available immediately.

The research will focus on the developing, testing and application of methods and algorithms relevant for the first-principles simulation of materials and materials discovery. Two main lines of work will be pursued: (1) the development of code modules within the context of the Electronic Structure Library (; (2) the application of such developments towards materials discovery in the context of photovoltaics, of interest and in collaboration with Merck and Simune .

Applicants should have a PhD in Physics or Chemistry. A strong background in quantum mechanics and computer simulation of quantum systems of condensed matter, materials or molecules are required. Experience and proficiency in coding are essential. The candidate will be based at Nanogune (San Sebastián, Spain) and will work in close collaboration with Emilio Artacho (Nanogune and University of Cambridge), Mónica García (Simune), Michal Krompiec (Merck) and with Fabiano Corsetti and Micael Oliveira for ESL. Applications should be sent to Emilio Artacho ( providing an
