  • Dirac Medal
    Edit Mátyus has been awarded the 2021 Dirac Medal of WATOC.
  • PhD and PD applications
    Applications are invited for PhD and postdoctoral positions to work in the Molecular Quantum Dynamics Research Group at ELTE in Budapest.

    We offer projects in the field of theory, method development, and applications in
    • * rovibrational spectroscopy (rovibrational coupling & large amplitude motions, applications for molecular complexes) and
    • * precision spectroscopy (pre-Born-Oppenheimer or non-adiabatic & bound-state relativistic QED, applications for few-particle molecular systems)
    Our research is driven by the desire to foster the quantum theory of molecules in terms of completeness, consistency, and efficiency - also motivated by input from our experimental colleagues.

    For the positions a solid background in molecular quantum mechanics, mathematics & programming skills, and fluency in English are required.

    Please submit your CV, motivation letter, and the names for at least two references to matyus@chem.elte.hu . The screening starts on 1st October 2020 and continues until the positions are filled.

    • * Starting date for the positions is 1 November 2020 (negotiable).
    • * We offer a competitive salary.
    • * The doctoral position is for 2+2 years.
    • * The post-doctoral position is with an initial appointment for one year with possible extension to further years.
  • Doctoral and post-doctoral positions
    There are doctoral and post-doctoral positions available in the group! Motivated candidates with strong chemical physics background are encouraged to contact the PI!

    We offer a range of student projects!
