Position Description:    

There is a postdoctoral opening in the group of Prof. Mikhail Lemeshko at the Institute of Science and Technology (IST) Austria. The Lemeshko group works at the interface of theoretical condensed-matter, chemical, and AMO physics. Our interests include (but are not limited to):

  • Physics and applications of the recently discovered angulon quasiparticles.
    The angulon represents a quantum impurity (an electron,  an atom, or a molecule) dressed by a cloud of many-particle excitations carrying angular momentum (e.g. phonons, particle-hole excitations, etc.). We are using angulons to describe angular momentum dynamics in a variety of systems, from molecules in quantum solvents to Rydberg atoms in ultracold gases to electrons coupled to phonons in solids (with applications to ultrafast magnetism). 
  • Interaction of chiral molecules with a many-body environment, with applications to chirality-induced spin polarisation and unconventional superconductivity.

  • Many-body physics of dipolar quantum systems, such as ultracold gases of magnetic atoms and polar molecules, and excitons in semiconductors.

We are looking for strongly motivated candidates experienced in theoretical AMO and/or condensed-matter physics. The position is offered for 2 years (an extension is possible), with a flexible starting date. Highly qualified applicants are also encouraged to apply for the ISTplus fellowship.

Please provide your CV with a publications list, a brief research statement, and a minimum of 3 letters of recommendation.
