2-year postdoc on dynamics of quantum systems (Uni.lu)

Job type: 


Application deadline:

Research group: 

Position open for a 2-year postdoc in the group “Quantum Dynamics and Control” lead by Aurelia Chenu at the University of Luxembourg. Starting date is flexible. See our group at chenulab.com

The postdoc fellow will be working on dynamics of non-Hermitian quantum systems. The applicant should be a creative and motivated researcher with knowledge of one or all of the following:
- many-body physics
- quantum optics
- quantum dynamics
- stochastic processes

In addition, they should have
• Excellent analytical and numerical skills;

• A high-quality PhD in Theoretical Physics;

• Solid knowledge of Quantum Mechanics;

• Good written and oral skills in English.

Your possible role: develop and characterize master equation for the description of open quantum systems. 1. develop a simplified derivation of the commonly used master equation in the wave function picture 2. develop a master equation for all coupling strengths. 3. Characterize new master equations. You should be inclined towards analytical analysis, although numerics will be equally developed during the project. Mastering description of a many-body quantum systems and tools from quantum optics is an asset. You will be closely interacting with one PhD student.

We offer a dynamic research unit in a recently created, quickly growing University; excellent working conditions in an international and inspiring environment; together with opportunities to participate regularly in scientific activities in Luxembourg and abroad (seminars, summer schools, conferences, etc).

Please send the following documents for application:

• Motivation letter, stating your experience and why you are interested in the position;

• Curriculum vitae (include year of birth);

• Contact of two persons willing to send letters of recommendation.

Send the application to aurelia.chenu@uni.lu with the keyword ‘ATTRACTpostdoc’ in the email subject.

Please mention if you need a visa to work in Europe.

Applications will be processed upon arrival. The position will be closed when filled.
