Research Fellow in Quantum Many-Body Physics

University of Leeds - Faculty of Engineering & Physical Sciences - School of Physics & Astronomy

Location: Leeds
Salary: £37,099 to £44,263 per annum - Due to funding restrictions, an appointment will not be made higher than £39,347 pa (Grade 7)
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 31st October 2023
Closes: 8th January 2024
Job Ref: EPSPA1096

Do you have a background in many-body quantum physics, tensor networks or topological phases of matter? Would you like to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities?

Applications are invited to work on a project New Paradigms of Order Amidst Quantum Chaos funded by Leverhulme Trust. You will work within the Theoretical Physics Group, in the School of Physics and Astronomy, as part of the research team of Dr Zlatko Papic.

The project will involve the development of new theoretical and computational approaches to study dynamics of interacting quantum systems, in the context of condensed matter physics and ultracold atomic systems. Some of the focus areas of the project include classical and quantum simulations of many-body systems (in particular, matrix product states and tensor network methods), quantum ergodicity and its violations (e.g. quantum scars and many-body localisation), as well as topological phases of matter. The job will involve collaborations within the group, e.g., with the group of Prof Pachos, as well as with our international collaborators.

You will have a PhD (or you will have submitted your thesis prior to taking up the appointment) in many-body quantum systems, broadly defined. You will also have experience in modelling, analysis and computational skills and evidence of contributing to papers in internationally recognised, peer-reviewed journals or evidence of publishable research in progress.
