Open PhD position

Starting immediately we are looking for a PhD candidate. The topic will be “Real space cluster extensions of dynamical mean-field theory”. Besides studies on paradigmatic models like the 2D Hubbard model on different lattice geometries or the Emery model for cuprate superconductors, material realistic models for transition metal oxides (TMO) of charge transfer (CT) and negative charge transfer (NCT) character will be focus.

Our group at the FAU Erlangen-Nuernberg offers the candidate contact to an international network of leading groups in the field of quantum many-body physics and correlated electron materials. Among others, ongoing collaborations include groups at the CCQ at the Flatiron institute (NYC), and at the TU Wien. The position is financed for 36 months by a DFG Einzelprojekt. Ideally the candidate has a strong background in quantum mechanics, solid state physics, and statistical  physics. Knowledge of 2nd quantization as well as basic coding experience (e.g. Python, C++) is advantageous.
