Come and join the research group of Dr Davide Proment to explore the intriguing application of holographic duality in modelling strongly interactive quantum fluids such as superfluid liquid helium and quantum Fermi fluids. This Senior Reseach Associate opportunity is a key part of the exciting and innovative “Holographic Quantum Fluids” research project, funded by the EPSRC in collaboration with the University of Heidelberg (Heidelberg, Germany) and the European Laboratory for Non-Linear Spectroscopy (Florence, Italy).

This project seeks to bridge two distinct realms of physics: the AdS/CFT holographic duality, initially conceived within the framework of string theory, quantum field theory, and general relativity, with the fascinating world of quantum fluids and condensed matter. The ultimate goal is to model various facets of strongly interacting quantum fluids at finite temperatures for which comprehensive first-principle theoretical models are currently lacking.

By joining Dr Proment’s research group at the University of East Anglia (UK), you will become part of a team with expertise in theoretical and numerical modelling of out-of-equilibrium quantum fluids. Together with Dr Davide Proment, you will work on all the work packages of the project and undertake visits to our project partners in Heidelberg (Prof. Carlo Ewerz and Prof. Thomas Gasenzer) and Florence (Dr Giacomo Roati) - a unique chance to collaborate with leading experts in the field.

We are actively seeking an exceptionally talented and motivated candidate with a PhD degree in physics (or an equivalent qualification) or experience in Physics/Applied Mathematics topics such as classical & quantum mechanics, Lagrangian & Hamiltonian mechanics, PDEs, statistical mechanics, and numerical methods, who aspires to become a leading member of our dynamic and diverse research group. While not mandatory, a strong knowledge of general relativity, fluid mechanics, classical & quantum field theory, quantum fluids, parallel computing, and/or code deployment in git would be highly desirable.

For further information on the project, including references to relevant literature, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Dr Davide Proment via email at d.proment@uea.ac.uk.

This full-time post is available from 1 April 2024 on a fixed term basis for up to three years, subject to grant funding.

Further information on our great benefits package, including 44 days annual leave inclusive of Bank Holidays and University Customary days (pro rata for part-time), can be found on our benefits page.

Closing date: 5 February 2024
