Postdoc Positions: Analogue Gravity and Quantum Simulations of Curved Spacetime

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Thursday, April 30, 2020

In the Theory of Cold Atoms group of Prof. Uwe R. Fischer at Seoul National University, two Postdoc positions are open in the field of quantum simulations of curved spacetimes (aka analogue gravity). Previous experience in the latter field and its implementations in various systems is required, such as in ultracold dilute quantum gases, ion traps, polariton condensates etc., and is to be documented in published form.
Possible topics of research in my group include implementations of analogues of trans-Planckian physics in cosmology and in Hawking radiation, and the proper treatment of the quantum backreaction problem.
Initial appointment is for one year with a possible extension to two years. Salary is according to the Korean postdoc scale.
