PhD student: theory of a few ultra-cold atoms

Job type: 
Application deadline: 
Friday, September 22, 2017

The PhD student will participate in the theoretical project “Two-component mixtures of a few attractive ultra-cold fermions” inspired by the most recent experiments in the field of ultra-cold gases confined in optical traps. The main objective is to perform very accurate, realistic numerical simulations which will bring us closer to a better understanding of physics of a few attractive fermions.

Profile of a candidate for the PhD student position:
• master degree obtained (or master's thesis submitted) in theoretical physics or in related field,
• numerical modeling and programming skills,
• research experience in related field, ideally proven by publications,
• very good spoken and written English.

The project is granted by the (Polish) National Science Center and it is carried out in the international collaboration by a group of young scientists from the Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences.

Tax-free scholarship: 2500-3000 PLN per month (depending on qualifications).
Note, that living costs in Poland are much smaller than in western Europe (see go-poland!).
