Open Positions

Graduate Student Research:

Highly motivated graduate students can inquire about research positions leading to an MSc or PhD degree. Students should have a strong motivation to do theoretical- and/or computational-based research. Due to the multidisciplinary nature of our investigations, students with various backgrounds can consider working in our lab. This includes graduate students from Physics, (Bio)Chemistry, Computer Science and Engneering. Some topics of research include:

1. Computational Physics:

  • Development of methods of computational quantum mechanics.
  • Density functional theory (DFT) of electronic structure.

2. Computational Biophysics & Biomolecular Physics:

  • Development of genetic algorithms.
  • Quantum Biochemistry.
  • Physical and molecular origins of carcinogenesis.

3. Computational Nanoscience:

  • Mesoscopic physics and molecular magnetism.
  • Computational spintronics.
