  1. Curriculum Vitae with a complete publication list and the names of at least three referees. 
  2. Description of current research interests.  
  3. List of ten publications of greatest interest for the selection.
SISSA is a leading research centre and PhD school beautifully located at and overseeing the northernmost spot of the Mediterranean Sea. It hosts renowned materials modeling and scientific computing groups, and offers first-rate HPC facilities, both in-house and off-campus. Strong collaborations are ongoing with top scientific institutions, including the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, the University of Trieste, the National Research Council (CNR), and the Elettra-Fermi synchrotron radiation facility. All of its activities are held in English. More information about the school and the group can be found at and .
