Since April 2017, Soumyajyoti is working as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the group of Prof. Dr. Stefan Heinze in the Spintronics Theory Group of Institute of Theoretical Physics & Astrophysics at Christian-Albrechts-Univesität zu Kiel.
Soumyajyoti completed his PhD in Physics at Division of Materials Theory, in Department of Physics and Astronomy, at Uppsala University from April, 2012 to March 2017. Involved research topics include Ab-initio electronic structure calculations, computational material science, density functional theory. His PhD work was supervised by of Dr. Biplab Sanyal and Prof. Olle Eriksson. These researches were financed by various funding agencies and funded by Uppsala University.
Previously, he worked as a Junior Research Fellow (JRF) at Centre for Modeling and Simulation, University of Pune under the supervision of Prof. D. G. Kanhere. The research works he carried out there were similar in nature and were financed under the ISJRP project sponsored by DST, India and SER, Switzerland.
He received his Master of Science (M.Sc) in Physics from Department of Physics, University of Pune. Previously, he received his B.Sc (Hons.) in Physics from St. Xavier's College (Kolkata), University of Calcutta.
He carried out a summer internship in TIFR supervised by Dr. Mandar Deshmukh. Researches involved in the application of electron beam lithography to study electrical transport properties of Niobium diselenide flakes.
