Post-Doctoral Fellow in Theoretical condensed matter physics


ESPCI ( is a leading French “Grande Ecole” founded in 1882, educating undergraduate and graduate students through a programme merging basic science and engineering, as well as a world-renowned research institution. ESPCI Paris hosts 9 research units, all associated to CNRS and/or INSERM and/or other Parisian Universities in the form of joined research units, covering the fields of physics, chemistry and biology. Favouring interdisciplinary, and operating at the frontiers between fundamental research and innovation, are two major objectives of the School.
ESPCI is also a part of Paris Science et Lettres (PSL) Research University ( – an ambitious collaboration project of 26 research institutions in a broad range of disciplines from engineering, chemistry and oncology to economics, management, the humanities and the performing arts.

Offer information

Offer description

PostDoc position in the group of Theory of Strongly Correlated Materials of the LPEM laboratory in ESPCI, Paris. The recruited person will pursue a line of research on the Density-Functional Theory + many-body strong correlations descriptions of Fe-based Superconductors and similar or related materials. In particular the candidate will investigate the interplay between non-local exchange interactions, spin-orbit effects and other realistic aspects of the one-body electronic dynamics in these materials with local many-body correlations and in particular Hund’s exchange coupling. Other opportunities of research within the objectives of the ERC Consolidator project StrongCoPhy4Energy and collaborations within the project group and outside will be available to the candidate depending on his/her interests and competencies.

Profile of the Candidate

Requirements : PhD or equivalent
PhD in physics (experience in theoretical physics or condensed matter physics preferred). Experience in Density Functional Theory (and especially in pseudo-potential codes like Quantum Espresso) represents the ideal asset. Experiences in theoretical methods for many-body physics such as Dynamical Mean-Field Theory, Quantum Monte Carlo or slave-particle methods will be highly appreciated.
