Position: Research Fellow
Institution: University College London
Department: Dept of Physics and Astronomy - CMMP
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: Two Research Fellow positions in theoretical condensed matter physics are available on the topic of correlated non-equilibrium quantum matter. The positions will be in the group of Dr. Arijeet Pal. The current focus in the group is on the phenomenon of quantum thermalisation, many-body localization, time crystals, and dynamics in topological systems. The project goes beyond isolated systems and investigates the effect of dissipation on such quantum coherent phenomena. More broadly the work in the group brings together tools and ideas from condensed matter physics and quantum information science. The group has strong links to experimentalists and the project envisages potential collaboration on questions relevant to experiments
Requirements: The successful applicant will complete/has completed a PhD in Physics or related fields with expertise in quantum many-body physics. Skills in quantum dynamics of isolated and/or open quantum systems will be advantageous. Knowledge of numerical techniques of tensor networks and exact diagonalization for quantum dynamics is desirable. Candidates should have a strong publication record and also excellent written and verbal communication skills

The current focus in the group is on the phenomenon of quantum thermalisation, many-body localization, time crystals, and dynamics in topological systems. The project goes beyond isolated systems and investigates the effect of dissipation on such quantum coherent phenomena. More broadly the work in the group brings together tools and ideas from condensed matter physics and quantum information science. The group has strong links to experimentalists and the project envisages potential collaboration on questions relevant to experiments. UCL hosts a fertile research environment in condensed matter and atomic physics (Professors Andrew Fisher, Andrew Green, Frank Kruger, Tania Monteiro, Marzena Szymanska) and quantum information science (Professors Sougato Bose, Toby Cubitt, Jonathan Oppenheim, Luis Masanes). The London Centre for Nanotechnology and the Quantum Science and Technology Institute provide ample opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration on a broad range of questions. These positions are funded through a grant from the European Research Council. Initial funding is for 2 years in the first instance (with a possible extension for a 3rd year, contingent on performance and funding). The successful candidates will be expected to begin by October 2020. Key Requirements The successful applicant will complete/has completed a PhD in Physics or related fields with expertise in quantum many-body physics. Skills in quantum dynamics of isolated and/or open quantum systems will be advantageous. Knowledge of numerical techniques of tensor networks and exact diagonalization for quantum dynamics is desirable. Candidates should have a strong publication record and also excellent written and verbal communication skills. Post holders are expected to conduct research in collaboration with Dr. Pal. Duties will include carrying out research within the general areas supported by the ERC grant; in addition to collaborating in the preparation of publications, the PDRA will be presenting papers and representing the group at conferences and workshops. There will be opportunities to mentor PhD. and Masters students. Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at Research Assistant Grade 6B (£31,479), with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis. Further Details A job description and person specification can be accessed at the bottom of this page. To apply for the vacancy please click on the Apply Now button below. Candidates will need to upload a CV (including a list of publications), a statement of research interests and plans (3 pages maximum), and the contact information for three references. A cover letter can be included using the Statement in Support of your Application section of the online form. Applicants should arrange for three letters of reference to be emailed to Dr. Arijeet Pal (a.pal@ucl.ac.uk) by the application deadline. If you have any queries regarding the application process, please contact Katherine Coleman by emailing k.coleman@ucl.ac.uk CMMP.
