Postdoc opening

KAIST-ISSP joint postdoctoral position for first-principles electronic structure calculations (Feb. 27th, 2015)

We would like to announce that a KAIST-ISSP joint postdoctoral research position is open to develop the OpenMX software package, which is expected to start from September 1st, 2015. The mission of the position is developing methods and codes for the first-principles spectral simulations such as X-ray absorption spectra, ultraviolet-visible absorption, infrared, Raman, and phonon spectra, and applying them to correlated materials such as complex oxide heterostructures, Fe-based superconductors, cuprates, and iridates.

The position will be a joint appointment between Institute for Solid State Physics (ISSP) in the University of Tokyo and Physics Department in Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). The candidate should have considerable expertise and experience in method and code development (preferably C-language), and is expected to have interests on researches of strongly correlated materials. The researcher in the joint position shall stay in both ISSP (Kashiwa, Japan) and KAIST (Daejeon, Korea), traveling between two institutes. The staying period in each place will be flexible depending on the research progress and the budget situation.
