HPC project IT4I/FLAMENCO: second period fully granted with 3.8 millions core-hours

After submission of our first TDDFT-baked publication, national facilities of IT4I.cz kindly provided the full requested time for our second period of the FLAMENCO project. This amount of computational time must be used by 9 months, up to March 2022.

A PhD student position aimed at supporting the development of TDDFT activities at HiLASE is open and will give opportunity to ambitious and talented student to make his/her steps in high power computation for laser processing.

The list of active collaborations articulated around the TDDFT activities is available.

PhD position for 2021-2024 is now open

A PhD position is open in the group of Ultrafast Photonics, on quantum modeling of laser-matter interaction with solids. It consists in numerical modeling using high power computations.

The offer is available at the top here: https://www.hilase.cz/en/list-of-ph-d-thesis-topics/

To apply, just contact me by email [ d e r r i e n (arobase) f z u . c z ], or Twitter (@tjyderrien), or by reply to this post.

Looking forward to meeting new curious people!

Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellowship 2015: granted!

Marie Sklodowska Curie ActionsThe “QuantumLaP” project has been approved by the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions of the European Union.

As a consequence, I will be funded by Europe for two years to perform advanced numerical modeling using classical and quantum calculations to improve the knowledge and control over the femtosecond laser processing of matter.

The project is supervised by Prof. Nadezhda M. Bulgakova (Hilase, Prague) [1].

The work will be performed within HiLASE Centre, part of the Institute of Physics (located in Dolni Brezany, near from Prague, CZ), Academy of Science of the Czech Republic.

The fellowship also includes 6 months at the Max Planck Institute for Structures and Dynamics of matter (Hamburg, Germany) under supervision of Prof. Angel Rubio (Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of matter, Hamburg) [2], and Dr Heiko Appel (MPSD, Hamburg) [3].

Official press release is available at the Hilase Centre.
