پسادکتری فیزیک در نروژ
The University of Oslo is Norway’s oldest and highest rated institution of research and education with 28 000 students and 7000 employees. Its broad range of academic disciplines and internationally esteemed research communities make UiO an important contributor to society.
The Centre for Materials Science and Nanotechnology (SMN) is an interdisciplinary focus field for material and energy research at the University of Oslo. SMN has focused on basic research in renewable energy and environmentally friendly use of fossil energy sources. The center consists of research groups from the Department of Physics (Fi) and Chemistry (Ki), has about 100 employees from around the world and manages more than 80 projects funded by the EU, the RCN and others.
۱ position as postdoctoral research fellow is available at Department of Physics / Centre for Materials Science and Nanotechnology (SMN).
The fellowship period is 2 years. Starting date no later than September 1st 2017. No one can be appointed for more than one fixed-term period at the same institution.
The postdoctoral position in theoretical semiconductor physics – first-principles modeling of defects in semiconductors – is associated with the Centre for Materials Science and Nanotechnology (SMN) at the Department of Physics, University of Oslo (UiO).
The aim of the studies is to explore novel concepts and ideas, as well as to elucidate and understand fundamental properties of semiconductors.The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will theoretically functionalize defects in semiconductors; more specifically to model, explore, and analyze various dopants, point defects, and complexes in advanced semiconductors by means of first-principles atomistic methods based on the density functional theory (DFT). She/he will perform DFT-based calculations of materials and systems with extraordinary potential, utilizing state-of-the-art computer simulation packages on national and international HPC resources. The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will be part of several research tasks that involve advanced theoretical investigations as well as close collaboration with the research groups within the FUNDAMeNT project.
The position is part of the Frontier Research Project “Functionalizing Defects in Advanced Semiconductors” (FUNDAMeNT), funded jointly by the Research Council of Norway and UiO. The project’s primary objective is to accelerate processes towards groundbreaking functionalities with a holistic approach to defects in advanced semiconductors and nanostructures, linking defect behavior with electrical,optical and magnetic functionalities and targeting size dependence of defect properties on nanostructure size and shape.A strategic aim of FUNDAMeNT is to consolidate the team as an internationally leading research environment in advanced semiconductors and defect physics, spanning from materials synthesis, characterization, and theoretical analyses to realization and evaluation of test (device) structures.

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition of being a leading research faculty. Candidates for these fellowships will be selected in accordance with this, and expected to be in the upper segment of their class with respect to academic credentials.
The applicant must have a PhD or other corresponding education equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree in Physics.
We seek candidates with very solid scientific background in condensed matter theory, who have strong experience in modeling and analyses of semiconductors using DFT based program packages, specifically experience in analyzing the impact on the material’s electronic structure due to impurities or dopants.
Good command of English is required. The successful candidate will interact closely with researchers and students, therefore collaborative abilities are important. Programming skills are advantageous.
Candidates without a PhD degree have until August 30th 2017 to complete the final exam.
The main purpose of post-doctoral research fellowships is to qualify researchers for work in top academic positions within their disciplines. Please also refer to the regulations pertaining to the conditions of employment for post-doctoral fellowship positions:
A good command of English is required.
