many-body physics

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to work on theoretical aspects related to quantum many-body physics. The research will focus in particular on:

- the investigation of non-equilibrium processes in synthetic quantum matter

- the development of protocols for novel engine cycles using non-equilibrium phase transitions

- the application of advanced numerical methods (e.g. tensor networks) to model quantum many-body engines

The Center for Complex Quantum Systems at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Aarhus University, invites applications for several postdoc positions with exciting opportunities to join new collaborative research projects in theoretical and experimental quantum physics.

The positions are available from September 1 2020, or as soon as possible hereafter.

The position is a two year full-time position.

There is an opening for a postdoctoral fellow to work at the QuSys Group at Trinity College Dublin starting around October 2020 with some flexibility in the precise date. The QuSys group is a young, dynamic and international group lead by Prof. John Goold. The groups interests are diverse ranging from thermodynamics of quantum systems and quantum transport in non equilibrium steady states (NESS) to quantum information and many-body physics. The position is initially for 2 years and can be extended further.

We are offering a funded three year postdoctoral position to a highly motivated and well-qualified researcher who intends to work in the field of quantum thermodynamics. The successful candidate will work as part of the research group led by Jens Eisert at the FU Berlin. For an overview of research activities of the group, see

The PhD project is in the domain of many-body physics with highly excited Rydberg atoms. The position is funded via the DFG priority programme GiRyd ( through the grant "Non-equilibrium phenomena in Rydberg lattice gases with facilitation constraints".
