The University of Kent has an active research community studying a range of phenomena in theoretical and applied condensed matter physics. The School of Physical Sciences hosts the interdisciplinary Functional Materials Group, with major recent investments in both theory and experiment of correlated quantum matter.
Of particular interest to the quantiki community, several theory groups within the Quantum Materials and Magnetism are working with quantum information methods, including DMRG (groups of Sam Carr and Gunnar Möller), tensor networks (Gunnar Möller) and other entanglement based approaches (group of Jorge Quintanilla). Some overarching themes of our research are: relativistic quantum-mechanical effects (e.g. spin-orbit coupling) in rare earths and superconductors; topological aspects of condensed matter physics; light-matter interactions; ferroic complex oxides and their interfaces; and new quantum phases of matter.
Closely related experimental work is undertaken in the groups of Silvia Ramos (neutron scattering), and Emma Pugh (low temperature, high pressure, high field experiments).
We invite applications for a postdoctoral position in the Functional Materials Group at the University of Kent, under the supervision of Dr Gunnar Möller. We are looking for candidates with enthusiasm for numerical simulations to join an EPSRC funded research project. In this project, we will investigate the equilibrium and non-equilibrium many-body physics arising in time-reversal invariant topological band structures based on density matrix renormalisation group methods.
We are currently offering a PhD position to a highly motivated and well-qualified student who intends to enhance his or her career in quantum information theory. The successful candidate will work as part of the research group led by Jens Eisert at the FU Berlin. For an overview of the research activities of the group, see
We are currently offering two PhD positions to highly motivated and well-qualified students who intend to enhance their career on the intersection of quantum many-body theory and quantum information science. The successful candidates will work as part of the research group led by Jens Eisert at the FU Berlin, in collaboration with that of Emil Bergholtz at the FU Berlin and in Stockholm. For an overview of the research activities of the groups, see
