Electronic Structure Theory


We conduct research in condensed matter theory, specializing in particular in the Electronic Structure of Materials.


Our research group is part of the Centre de Physique Théorique (CPHT) at Ecole Polytechnique, and is affiliated with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). The group is headed by Silke Biermann.

We are a node of the European Psi-K network on Electronic Structure Calculation of Complex Processes in Materials and an associate partner of the European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility.

We make use of the CPHT computing facilities, to consult the documentation check this page.


Job openings and internships


If you would like to do an internship with us or to join our group as a Phd student or post-doc, please write an email to Silke Biermann.


Upcoming workshops and seminars


A schedule of the joint condensed matter theory seminar on the plateau can be found here. Also note further seminars at LPS in Orsay here and seminars in the field of physics and mathematics located in the Paris area here.
