We invite applications for one postdoc position within the newly funded European Center of Excellence TREX – “Targeting Real chemical accuracy at the EXascale”, which started its activities on October 2020. Hiring for this position will start in July-October 2022 and will continue for about six months.
A postdoctoral position at SISSA is available in the group of Prof. Sandro Sorella (http://people.sissa.it/~sorella/), starting date June-July 2022, awarded by the Simon's collaboration on the many electron problem (https://www.simonsfoundation.org).
First time users of the SISSA cluster can be smoothly introduced to high performance computing (HPC) by the guide https://ulysses.readthedocs.io/ that was written by the CM student Matteo Seclì.
It is a student project and you can freely contribute and partecipate to the discussion on Ulysses-doc.

Precise control over size and edges of graphene nanostructures allows tuning of physical properties in a wide range. Famous examples are armchair graphene nanoribbons with width-dependent electronic band gaps. Even more intriguing are nanostructures with zigzag edges where the intrinsic symmetry breaking between the two sublattices induces spin polarization or net magnetic moments. In all examples, precise control of the properties requires structuring with ultimate, i.e. atomic, resolution. Here, I will introduce on-surface synthesis as a successful deterministic bottom-up fabrication method for nanographenes. Using specifically designed molecular building blocks with dedicated leaving groups allowing for controlled colligation allowed us to grow a multitude of graphene nanoribbons with simple armchair or zigzag edges, but also periodic edge modulations giving rise to deterministically defined topological in-gap bands. Based on these earlier studies we recently achieved nanographenes with net magnetic moments building on a sublattice imbalance or topological frustration of the pi-electron network. I will discuss nanographenes with chemically tailored exchange coupling between different spin centers with a magnitude that largely surpasses those of transition metal nanomagnets together with theoretical approaches for the description of their properties. Combining these achievements allows for the construction of spin chains. As an example, I will discuss the triangulene S = 1 spin chain where we observe the gapped spin excitations predicted by Haldane and fraction edge states at the chain termini.
