Postdoctoral position in modelling fractional topological insulators

Job type: 


Application deadline: 

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Research group: 

We invite applications for a postdoctoral position in the Functional Materials Group at the University of Kent, under the supervision of Dr Gunnar Möller. We are looking for candidates with enthusiasm for numerical simulations to join an EPSRC funded research project. In this project, we will investigate the equilibrium and non-equilibrium many-body physics arising in time-reversal invariant topological band structures based on density matrix renormalisation group methods. The project also aims to explore new directions for realising fractional topological orders in layered two-dimensional materials. Funds are available to visit our international project partner Prof. Frank Pollmann at the Technical University Munich.

This position is available for 18 months starting from September 2017 (or shortly thereafter). Candidates in the final stages of completing their PhD are strongly encouraged to apply. For further details, see

The opening closes on May 4th.

Please feel free to contact Gunnar Möller at for further information.
