Research Fellow in many-body theory, University of Nottingham

Job type: 


Application deadline:

Research group: 

Reference: SCI020716
Salary: £25769 to £37768 per annum, depending on skills and experience (minimum £28982 with relevant PhD). Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance.
Fixed term.

The project is to carry out research on the equilibrium and out-of-equilibrium properties of many-body system, for example cold atomic gases, quantum optical systems or classical colloidal systems. One focus will be on the study of the emergence of correlated states and collective phenomena in the presence of dissipation and/or (coherent) driving.

The researcher will be an integral part of an interdisciplinary team of researchers covering a broad range of topics including statistical physics, condensed-matter theory, computational physics, atomic physics and quantum optics, and soft-matter physics. We seek a motivated, skilled and highly independent researcher to complement our team.

The main responsibility of this post will be to carry out independent theoretical research on quantum or classical many-body systems, and to apply and/or develop analytical and numerical methods for exploring their strongly correlated dynamics. The researcher is moreover expected to actively contribute to the research activities of the condensed matter theory group at the School of Physics and Astronomy.

Candidates must have, Bsc/MPhys Degree in Physics, PhD (or near to completion) in Physics related to the subject.

The post commences on or after 1st April 2016.
