Postdoctoral positions in quantum many-body systems and quantum thermodynamics

Job type:

Saturday, December 9, 2023

A newly established research group led by Dario Rosa - at the ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research (ICTP-SAIFR), located at the campus of the Instituto de Física Teórica (IFT-UNESP) in São Paulo - is looking for postdoctoral fellows willing to join the group.

The research interests of the group cover several topics, whose common theme is to study the impact of quantum chaos - or its absence - on the physics of quantum many-body systems. In parallel, we will apply this acquired knowledge to the flourishing fields of quantum technologies and quantum thermodynamics.
As an example, the following themes are of interest:

  1. Late-time quantum chaos and BGS conjecture
  2. Early-time quantum chaos and operator scrambling
  3. Many-body localization
  4. Quantum many-body scars
  5. Neural quantum states and MPS methods
  6. Quantum batteries
  7. Quantum engines
  8. Thermodynamic uncertainty relations

More details on Dario's research activity can be found at the following link, as well as at his Google Scholar web page.

Strong oral and written communication skills, excellent computational skills (analytical and/or numerical are both welcome) and the ability to work on the main research interests of the group are essential for these positions. Applicants should also have a strong interest in working in a multidisciplinary and dynamic research environment.

Interested applicants should apply following the procedure explained at this link.
