Position Description:    

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

An opportunity has arisen for a motivated researcher to work on a project Quantum many-body scars 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 Papic.

The project will involve the development of new theoretical and computational approaches to study dynamics of strongly interacting quantum systems, either in the context of condensed matter physics or ultracold atomic systems. The focus of the project is non-ergodic dynamics which leads to the phenomenon of quantum many-body scars, as well as related phenomena in the context of many-body localisation and topologically ordered systems. The job will involve collaborations within the group, e.g., with the group of Prof Pachos, as well as with many of 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.
