PhD position available! – 2D materials for hydrogen splitting

We are looking for a talented and motivated student with a good knowledge of quantum mechanics and solid-state physics, and experience in manybody perturbation theory with a computational condensed matter physics profile. The candidate will investigate 2D materials for hydrogen splitting. In particular, by using density functional theory and manybody perturbation theory techniques he/she will investigate the structural electronic and optical properties (excitons and exciton dispersions) of several g-CxNy materials from monolayer to bulk. Most important he/she will try to address the potential of these materials for water splitting.
