Position: PhD position "Orbital Mapping"
Institution: Technische Universität Wien
Location: Wien, Austria
Duties: In the context of the FWF project “Orbital Mapping Near Interfaces”, we are looking for an independent, motivated young researcher to join the team. The goal of the project is to develop a novel approach for mapping electronic orbitals using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and electron energy-loss spectrometry (EELS). Achieving this goal will not only further the resolution limit of TEMs but also provide substantial new insights into the structure of matter
Requirements: Master’s degree in Physics, Mathematics, or Computer Science (or equivalent qualification); Passionate about physical and mathematical puzzles; Solid understanding of quantum mechanics (experience with the description of many-body effects is advantageous); Programming experience (ideally C/C++ or Fortran and version control systems); Excellent English skills (both orally and in writing)
   
Text: PhD position “Orbital Mapping” In the context of the three-year FWF project “Orbital Mapping Near Interfaces”, we are looking for an independent, motivated young researcher to join the team. The goal of the project is to develop a novel approach for mapping electronic orbitals using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and electron energy-loss spectrometry (EELS). Achieving this goal will not only further the resolution limit of TEMs but also provide substantial new insights into the structure of matter. At TU Wien, we will primarily be working on the theoretical description, prediction, and optimization of the new orbital mapping method with a focus on the inclusion of many-body effects. The work will be performed in close cooperation with experimental groups at TU Graz and Ulm university. Your profile:  Master’s degree in Physics, Mathematics, or Computer Science (or equivalent qualification)  Independent, motivated team-player  Passionate about physical and mathematical puzzles  Solid understanding of quantum mechanics (experience with the description of many-body effects is advantageous)  Programming experience (ideally C/C++ or Fortran and version control systems)  Excellent English skills (both orally and in writing) We offer:  An exciting project at the forefront of science  The chance to develop new methods for materials analysis on the atomic scale  International cooperations  A young, dynamic team  A salary of € 2162.40 gross per month (30 h) The earliest starting date is October 1st, 2019. Applications should be submitted via email (stefan.loeffler@tuwien.ac.at) only and should contain a cover/motivation letter, CV, certificates, and credentials (if applicable) in English.
