Position: Research Fellow in Theory of Non-Ergodic Quantum Manipulation
Institution: University College London
Department: Physics and Astronomy
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The applicant will play a leading role in modelling quantum many-body systems so as to compute uniquely quantum properties such as entanglement, work out regimes of isolation in which non-Ergodic behaviour can be experimentally evidenced, model transport in strongly interacting disordered systems, and design quantum technology applications. It will involve a close interaction with experimentalists to model their results, as well as design new experiments. The applicant will be expected to play an active role in the co-supervision of PhD students and the writing up of the results as articles for publication
Requirements: The successful applicant will have, or be about to receive, a PhD in Physics or a related discipline and have expertise in one or more of: numerical modelling of quantum many-body systems, quantum transport in mesoscopic systems, open quantum systems, quantum simulators, quantum information and entanglement or a closely related area; Candidates should also have excellent written and verbal communication; An experience of interactions with experimentalists or an understanding of experiments is desirable
   
Text: Research Fellow in Theory of Non-Ergodic Quantum Manipulation, - Ref:1879577 Click here to go back to search results Apply Now UCL Department / Division Physics and Astronomy Location of position London Grade 7 Hours Full Time Salary (inclusive of London allowance) £36,770 - £44,388 per annum Duties and Responsibilities UCL Department of Physics and Astronomy has an immediate opening for one/two theoretical Research Fellow/s to work alongside experimentalists on a UKRI funded multi-university programme grant Non-Ergodic Quantum Manipulation. The major objective of the project is to realize a novel platform for investigating non-Ergodic behaviour of quantum many-body systems of strongly interacting electrons in semiconductor nanostructures, in much the same way as has been done recently with atomic and superconducting quantum simulators. It will involve evidencing entanglement in solid state many-body electronic systems, and exploiting them for possible future quantum technologies. The applicant will play a leading role in modelling quantum many-body systems so as to compute uniquely quantum properties such as entanglement, work out regimes of isolation in which non-Ergodic behaviour can be experimentally evidenced, model transport in strongly interacting disordered systems, and design quantum technology applications. It will involve a close interaction with experimentalists to model their results, as well as design new experiments. The applicant will be expected to play an active role in the co-supervision of PhD students and the writing up of the results as articles for publication. This position is funded for 2 years in the first instance. Key Requirements The successful applicant will have, or be about to receive, a PhD in Physics or a related discipline and have expertise in one or more of: numerical modelling of quantum many-body systems, quantum transport in mesoscopic systems, open quantum systems, quantum simulators, quantum information and entanglement or a closely related area. Candidates should also have excellent written and verbal communication. An experience of interactions with experimentalists or an understanding of experiments is desirable. 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 (salary £32,217 - £33,958 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis. Further Details 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. If you have any queries regarding the application process, please contact Shanice Thomas, shanice.thomas@ucl.ac.uk , ( 44 (0)20 7679 3943).
