We are seeking motivated student researchers to conduct state-of-the-art research in recently established Laboratory for Advanced Materials at Comenius University (CU) in Bratislava, Slovakia. The dissertation theme:
Theoretical modeling of the properties of crystalline solid materials using advanced computational methods. Theoretical methods based on the Density Functional Theory (DFT) as will be used (and potentially developed) to screen and predict properties, such as crystal structure, thermal stability, optical and electrical properties, of solid materials with application in solar energy conversion, optoelectronics and/or electronics. The research will be performed in close collaboration with the members of the research team experimentally preparing and characterizing the materials and developing their applications. The theoretical modeling will be also used to aid in interpretation of results of experiments. The work will be performed jointly at LAM and department of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry at the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Comenius University.
Where will you work? The research will be performed at an EU financed, newly established Laboratory for Advanced Materials (LAM), located in the recently constructed CU Science Park (https://cusp.uniba.sk ). As a PhD student you will be participating in a multi-disciplinary research effort including design and preparation of new materials, their chemical, structural and electronic characterization using variety of advanced characterization methods and development of their applications in energy conversion and storage, optoelectronic and electronics. Your participation in this research will include opportunities to collaborate with other research teams from Comenius University, Slovak Academy of Sciences, Slovak Technical University, as well as our collaborators from other countries of EU and USA. As part of your studies you will have an opportunity to present your research results at various international conferences as well as participate in exchange research visits with our international collaborators.
If you are interested in the position, please contact Dr. Milan Sýkora via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org ). In the e-mail please state why would you like to work at LAM (in the context of your prior position/experience and your future plans) and attach a CV (one-page max.). Recommendation letter from your mentor of mentors is a plus. You can find more information at: https://fns.uniba.sk/en/lam
