Research Associate in Quantum Coherence in Non-equilibrium Light Matter Systems

UCL, Physics and Astronomy

Salary (inclusive of London allowance) £32,375 - £39,132 per annum

Start: as soon as possible

Duties and Responsibilities:

The main aim of this project is to explore novel emergent phenomena in far from equilibrium quantum systems with a particular focus on light-matter systems such as microcavity polaritons, quantum spins, circuit and cavity QED systems. There are two Research Associates positions available on this project.

One position is funded for 2 years in the first instance and the other position is funded for 3 years in the first instance.

Key Requirements:

The successful applicants will have a PhD in Physics and expertise in either of theoretical condensed matter physics, quantum optics or information, cold atoms or a closely related area. They should have a thorough understanding of quantum mechanics of many particle systems and mastery of analytical/numerical tools used to model quantum systems.
