The position involves analytical and computational modelling of laser excitation of semiconductor quantum dots and other systems, devising schemes for the erasure of information stored in those systems, and extending the thermodynamical framework to incorporate the erasure schemes. The ideal candidate will have a strong track record in computational quantum physics preferably with a background in semiconductor quantum dot systems (or similar area of condensed matter physics). You must have expertise in an area of quantum physics, knowledge of numerical methods and scientific programming techniques, experience using programming packages such as MATLAB, Octave or Mathematica, and knowledge of high-level programming languages such as FORTRAN, C or Pascal. Experience in modelling the dynamics of semiconductor quantum dot systems (or similar area of condensed matter physics) is highly desirable. The position is in the Quantum Thermodynamics Program led by Associate Professor Joan Vaccaro ( http://www.griffith.edu.au/professional-page/joan-vaccaro/research ). The term is for 2 years initially with a possibility of extension for a further year, and is available immediately.
