Research Associate - Theory of Open Quantum Systems

Job type: 


Application deadline: 

Sunday, March 6, 2016

Research group: 

See for further particulars

In this EPSRC-funded position, you will specialise in developing the theory of the dynamics and thermodynamics of open quantum systems beyond weak-coupling regimes, with application to solid-state and molecular systems.

You must possess a PhD in quantum physics or a related discipline, and an active interest and excellent track record of publications in areas such as the theory of open quantum systems, quantum optics, and quantum nanosystems.

Experience of non-perturbative numerical approaches to modelling open quantum systems, or many-body quantum states would be an advantage.

You should be well-organised, self-motivated, and able to work effectively with a variety of collaborators, both theoretical and experimental.

You will be working under the supervision of Dr Ahsan Nazir, as part of an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship project “Redrawing the boundaries: new approaches to many-body open quantum systems”, please see:

The post is available immediately for a period of 24 months, with the potential for further extension subject to funding.

The University of Manchester values a diverse workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
