The Department of Physics is seeking to appoint a lecturer in the Theory & Simulation of Condensed Matter (TSCM) research group.
The successful candidate will help in the delivery and development of high-quality undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes and undertake original research in Condensed Matter Physics. The TSCM Group has a broad remit of research, including significant expertise in correlated many-body systems. Research activities span from quantum chemistry and the atomistic modelling of molecules and materials, to dynamical phenomena in quantum many-body systems. We are looking to both enhance and diversify these research activities.
The successful candidate must have developed a creative, original and distinctive research vision, a high-quality publication record and should have the potential to secure external research funding. We are looking for researchers with the qualities to build a team, to function within the group and with the ability to provide high-quality teaching. We are looking for candidates who can demonstrate creativity, enthusiasm for group, intergroup and interdepartmental collaboration and qualities which will help to maintain and enhance the culture of the Department of Physics.
The study of Physics at King's dates back to the foundation of the College in 1829. The Department is currently undergoing significant growth with substantial investment in new appointments, research infrastructure and laboratory space refurbishment. We offer a range of UG courses in both three-year (BSc) and 4-year (MSci) versions as well as MSc and PhD programmes.
The Department of Physics at King’s College London is diverse, international and friendly with a positive atmosphere of collaboration and support between research groups. We currently hold a silver Athena Swan award and Juno Champion status from the Institute of Physics (IOP). We offer a welcoming environment and welcome applications from applicants of all backgrounds.
Celebrating diversity and supporting staff is important to us and we offer a range of provision including flexible working, caring support (including a Parenting and Carers Fund and the Carer’s Career Development Fund), training, and a variety of diversity and inclusion networks. Staff can apply for flexible working to help them balance the demands of their professional and personal commitments and we offer comprehensive leave policies for parental, adoption, surrogacy, dependant, and shared leave.
The Faculty of Natural, Mathematical & Engineering Sciences (NMES) comprises Chemistry, Engineering, Informatics, Mathematics, and Physics – all departments are highly rated in research activities and have a wide-ranging portfolio of education programmes. The university is making investment in NMES and both student and staff numbers are growing. Our staff come from over 45 countries and 56% of our students are from outside the UK. KCL staff are principally located on the Strand Campus in the heart of central London. Further details are available at https://www.kcl.ac.uk/nms and https://www.kcl.ac.uk/physics
