Two post-doc and two PhD positions available

The positions are funded via ERC grant APES: Accuracy and precision for molecular solids. In the project we want to develop accurate methods for the description of (mostly) binding properties of molecular solids. This will allow us to reliably predict stability of different phases and polymorphs. We will be also able to understand where currently widely used DFT-based methods lack accuracy. Postdoc positions are available from January 2018 and PhD will start in October 2018. There is a deadline for applying to the university PhD programme on 30. 4. 2018, so please contact me in January or February at the latest. More information in a leaflet here, via e-mail or on the theses page. More information about the postdoc positions on the or in the Psi-k or CCL adverts.

About me

I'm a researcher at the Quantum physics department at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics in Prague. I'm interested in the development of accurate quantum chemistry methods and in their application to interesting systems. I did my PhD with Angelos Michaelides at UCL in London and then some years of post-doc with Georg Kresse at the University of Vienna. I was a Marie Sklodowska Curie fellow at the Department of Theoretical Chemistry of the Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry in Prague.
