Description of the offer :

The PhD project is dedicated to the study of the Fermi-surface topology and its interplay with quantum phase transitions in strongly correlated electronic systems. Complementary theoretical calculations will be performed invoking both first-principles-based electronic structure numerical calculations and Kondo-like model Hamiltonian analytical approaches. In particular, the PhD student will investigate Lifshitz transitions and metal to Mott or Kondo insulator transitions in realistic systems which are conceivably associated with unconventional orders (magnetic, orbital, charge, spin liquid, or hidden orders). This theoretical research is part of the joint French-German collaborative project “Fermi-NESt” (Fermi-surface topology and emergence of novel electronic states in strongly correlated electron systems) awarded by the ANR (Agence National de la Recherche) and by the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). The PhD student will collaborate with the experimental partners of the Fermi-NESt project that regroups 9 research institutes located in Bordeaux, Braunschweig, Grenoble, Dresden, Paris, and Francfort.
