Research Associate/Fellow in Theoretical Many-body Physics

University of Nottingham - Physics & Astronomy

Location: University Park

Salary: £26,495 to £29,799 per annum, depending on skills and experience (£29799 with relevant PhD).

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, as well as 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 research on the mathematics of open quantum many-body systems, and to apply and/or develop analytical and numerical methods for exploring their strongly correlated dynamics and stationary states. 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.

The post commences on or after 1st January 2018 and will be offered on a fixed term contract until 31 December 2018.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Juan Garrahan, email or Professor Igor Lesanovsky, email Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.

The University of Nottingham is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
