Research Assistant/Research Associate in Theory of Condensed Matter (Fixed Term)

University of Cambridge - Department of Physics, West Cambridge

Location: Cambridge
Salary: Not Specified
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 16th December 2021
Closes: 15th February 2022
Job Ref: KA29441

Research Assistant: £27,116 to £31,406

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 2 years in the first instance.

 A position exists for Research Assistant/Associate in the group of Dr Slager, embedded in the Theory of Condensed Matter group at the Department of Physics, University of Cambridge.

The aim of the role is to explore new topological phases of matter, broadly defined. In particular, we will be keen on expanding the role of Euler or multi-gap topologies as addressed in recent works of our group. The candidate will be funded from a grant that aims to further develop these new phases of matter. Please see our recent works on the website or contact the PI for more details. Although the candidate will by and large be concerned with the theoretical aspects of this pursuit, this position is part of an ambitious research program, with a strong interdisciplinary nature, including but not limited to collaborations with the Monserrat group in the Materials Science Department as well as other international experimental and theoretical partners.

The successful candidate will hold (or be close to obtaining) a PhD in theoretical physics with a proven track record in topological phases of matter. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in modelling and topological analysis of various systems as demonstrated by publications in major journals.  A solid understanding of Euler topologies is also a requirement.

The candidate will also have the ability to further develop own research ideas as well as profit from all training programmes in place to further progress their career.

The post holder will be located at the Department of Physics Cavendish Laboratory JJ Thomson Avenue Cambridge CB3 0HE, UK.

Salary Ranges: Research Assistant: £27,116 to £31,406 Research Associate: ££33,309 to £40,927.

Appointment at research associate is dependent on having a PhD including those who have submitted but not yet received their PhD (in which case appointment will initially be made at research assistant and amended to research associate when the PhD is awarded).
