Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 4 years.

Applications are invited for an EPSRC funded post-doctoral research position in theoretical condensed matter physics, under the supervision of Dr D. Kovrizhin at the Theory of Condensed Matter group, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge. The post is available from 1 October 2015, for a duration of four years.

The post will involve the study of non-equilibrium phenomena in strongly-correlated quantum systems. Examples of topics include: quantum Hall edge states far from equilibrium, dynamics of quantum spin liquids, emergence and fractionalisation out of equilibrium, and development of analytical and numerical techniques (such as Keldysh diagrammatic Monte-Carlo) for strongly-correlated non-equilibrium quantum systems.

The successful candidate should have a strong track record of research in theoretical condensed matter physics, demonstrating excellent analytical skills and some experience in scientific programming. Candidates should hold a PhD/DPhil in the area of theoretical physics.

The Theory of Condensed Matter group ( in Cambridge has an established track record in strongly correlated physics and collective phenomena. The group has a lively range of scientific activities (meetings, journal clubs, internal and external seminars) and has close ties with experimental groups in the Laboratory. Interactions and collaborations with other members of the group and the Cavendish in general are encouraged.
