Do you want to participate in a joint experimental/theoretical research programme solution and explore the viability of un-particle superconductivity?
The School of Mathematics and Physics at Queen’s University Belfast is seeking a highly motivated Research Fellow for the duration of three years, to undertake theoretical research on microscopic mechanisms of superconductivity in low-dimensional materials through advanced first principle calculations.
The research will carried out as part of the EPSRC funded project “Un-particle superconductivity in low-dimensional materials” which is a collaboration between the team at Queen’s University Belfast lead by Dr Myrta Gruening and experimental groups from the University of Bristol, working on high magnetic field transport measurements in novel high-temperature superconductors.
This is truly an exciting opportunity, where the successful candidate will be part of a world class innovative and mission-led team, with responsibilities in independent research, planning and collaboration.
The successful candidate must have, and you should clearly demonstrate this in your CV/Cover letter:
- A proven track record of using Density Functional Theory for electronic structure calculations
- Undertaking research in the area of Condensed Matter Physics
