Research Fellow in theoretical quantum many-body physics

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Thursday, July 17, 2014

The project is to carry out research on the equilibrium and out-of-equilibrium properties of many-body quantum system, for example cold atomic gases. 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 and – if possible – their potential use for applications, e.g. quantum information processing.

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.

We seek a motivated, skilled and highly independent researcher to complement this team. The main responsibility of this post will be to carry out independent theoretical research on quantum many-body physics. 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 at the University of Nottingham.

The post commences on or after 1st August 2014 and lasts for 24 months.

Applications need to be submitted online through where also further details, such as salary can be found.
