Subject: 20.02.26 Postdoc positions in quantum chemistry/condensed matter physics/machine learning.
Postdoc positions in quantum chemistry/condensed matter physics/machine learning.

We are seeking candidates with strong interest and expertise in quantum
method development in relation to a project involving a combination of
quantum chemistry, condensed matter physics and machine learning.  

The positions will involve working in a small and focused team consisting
of 2 other post docs and professors Nicola Lanata (condensed matter
physics, Aarhus University) and Ove Christiansen (Theoretical Chemistry,
Aarhus University).

This team is embedded in the bigger Lanata and Christiansen group at
respectively the physics and chemistry departments at Aarhus University.

The ideal candidate has a Ph.D. degree in theoretical Physics or
Chemistry, or related discipline. 

Important background includes expert programming skills and analytical abilities. 
Collaborative skills are necessary as well as a high level of independence.
Other key-words of notice are embedding theories, machine
learning/regression, dynamic mean field theory or related methods, QM/MM,
metalloproteins, second quantization, C++/Python.

The project team will develop, test, and apply new methods to treat strong
electron correlation in isolated molecules and condensed phase systems. 

Qualified applicants should email an expression of interest, including CV,
list of publication, a letter of motivation, and reference names (all in
one pdf file) to Nicola Lanata ( and 
Ove Christiansen (

We will consider applications as they appear until the position is filled.

Aarhus is Denmarks second largest city, and forms the center of the
western parts of the country on the Jutland peninsula.

Recently, Aarhus has attracted international attention as a travel
destination due to its unique combination of a thriving food-scene,
high-quality museums, a surrounding beautiful nature, a very lively city
due to the young population, many cultural events including music
festivals etc.

See e.g. the recent recommendation by CNN 

Aarhus is easily reached through local international airports in Jutland
within 1 hour of Aarhus, or through either Copenhagen or Hamburg Airports,
both situated about a 3-hour train-journey from Aarhus.

Aarhus University is consistently ranked as a top-100 university in the
World and it houses both an engineering and a medical school, as well as
the traditional sciences, social sciences, environmental and agricultural
sciences and arts.
