many-body physics

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".

The Quantum Information Group at University College London (UCL) invites applications for the postdoctoral research position associated to the EPSRC project Scrambling of Quantum Information in Many-Body Systems, working with Dr Lluis Masanes. The goals of this project are: to establish realistic time scales for equilibration processes, to quantify the depth/strength of thermalisation processes, to study the effect of causal structure and conformal symmetry in the previous problems, and to construct unitary designs generated by time-independent interactions.

Quantum simulation is an exceptionally vivid field of research embracing several areas of physics, ranging from atomic, molecular, and optical physics, to condensed-matter, nuclear, gravitational and high-energy physics, as well as quantum information science. The goal of quantum simulation is to address important, yet unsolved quantum Hamiltonians by “synthesizing” them in experimental quantum systems so as to directly measure the properties of these models, otherwise very hard to be handled by classical computations.

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 quantum group at the University of Malta is seeking one or more PhD students and a post-doctoral researcher to work on the Horizon 2020 project HOT: Hybrid Optomechanical Technologies. These positions are accompanied by a generous salary, a travel and equipment budget, and are fully funded for three years. We also promise copious sunshine and great beaches.
