Position Description:    

Applications are invited for a Research Fellow in Quantum Many-Body Physics. 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.
