Nano-structured functional oxides such as thin films, super-lattices or nano-composites attract great interest because of the wealth of possibilities that they offer for optimizing functional propertiesand even inducing new ones.

The project EXPAND is a collaboration between several laboratories in France (CNRS / Thales, Centrale Supelec) and Luxembourg (LIST) with a focus on ferroelectric and anti-

ferroelectric (hetero)structures, and their responses to external electric and stress fields, including negative-capacitance and other effects of interest for various energy-related applications.


In this context, we are looking for a post-doc to conduct theoretical research at LIST. More specifically, this post-doc will :

  • run atomistic simulations based on first- and second-principles methods
  • to understand, and find ways to optimize, the properties complex (anti)ferroelectric oxides
  • an important goal being to support / guide the experimental efforts in EXPAND
  • The post-doc will work under the supervision of Dr. Jorge Íñiguez (jorge.iniguez list.lu), whose recent work on related projects can be consulted in Google Scholar, and to whom interested candidates are welcome to address their queries.


  • Condensed Matter Physics, Statistical Physics, Computational Materials Science
