Position ID:Boston College-Physics-POSTDOC [#24328]
Position Title: Postdoctoral Associate
Position Type:Postdoctoral
Position Location:Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts 02467, United States [map] sort by distance
Subject Area: Condensed Matter Physics / Condensed Matter Theory
Appl Deadline: (posted 2023/05/05, updated 2023/02/14, listed until 2023/10/01)
Position Description:    

The research group of Prof. Benedetta Flebus invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate position in the Department of Physics at Boston College. The successful candidate will conduct theoretical research at the interface between spintronics and quantum many-body dynamics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, 1) the emergence of cooperative quantum phenomena and entanglement in quantum hybrid spin systems; 2) the application of novel quantum sensing techniques, such as nitrogen-vacancy centers, to probe condensed matter systems; 3) developing new theoretical frameworks and numerical tools to bridge classical and quantum descriptions of dissipative magnetization dynamics.

A PhD in physics or a closely related field is required. Candidates with a strong background in the theory of open quantum systems and non-Hermitian phenomena are strongly encouraged to apply. The initial appointment will be for two years, with the possibility for a third year, depending on availability of funding. The start date of the appointment is ideally October-December 2023, but it can be anticipated.

Interested applicants should not apply on this portal, but are instead encouraged to contact Prof. Benedetta Flebus directly at providing a CV with publications and a brief description of research interests, and indicating the preferred start date.

Application Materials Required:
Those requested in the position description.
