Computational physicist Dorothea Golze receives prestigious Emmy Noether Award

Dorothea Golze received funding from the German Research Foundation within the Emmy Noether Programme to establish her own junior research group at the Technical University of Dresden.

Golze’s Emmy-Noether project will develop highly accurate theoretical methods for core-level spectroscopy of complex materials based on fully relativistic Green’s function theory in the GW approximation. The project will focus on X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) , which are powerful tools for materials characterization. However, the experimental spectra are generally difficult to interpret without aid from predictive theoretical models. The goal of the Emmy-Noether project is to advance highly accurate GW-based methods for the prediction of XPS and XAS of complex materials, including light and heavy elements. The project will push GW-based methods to previously inaccessible system sizes by developing low-scaling algorithms and exploiting the computational power of the new generation of exascale supercomputers.

The project will start in June 2021 and offers PhD and Postdoc positions. If you are interested, please contact Dorothea ([email protected]) for more information.
