ETSF


The ETSF is a knowledge center for theoretical spectroscopy nanotube and a network of researchers carrying out state-of-the-art research on theoretical and computational methods for studying electronic and optical properties of materials. The ETSF gathers the experience and know-how of more than 200 researchers in Europe and the United States, facilitating collaborations and rapid knowledge transfer. Highly efficient computational software plays a crucial role in bridging the gap between theoretical methods and real applications.

2 PhD positions at U Utrech in topological materials or exciton physics/theoretical spectroscopy

We invite applications for two PhD positions at Utrecht University in first-principles modelling of topological materials or exciton physics/theoretical spectroscopy.

The research programme will be carried out in the team of Zeila Zanolli, at the Condensed Matter and Interfaces Group at the Debye Institute for Nanomaterials Science. The research concerns the use and development of advanced first-principles (ab initio) techniques to model nanoscale materials, with special focus on topological materials and applications in nanoelectronic and spintronic devices.
