They are specifically looking for individuals who are interested to explore the cross roads of condensed matter physics, quantum information theory and string theory, aiming at the physics of strange metals as described by holographic duality.

The Instituut Lorentz is a vibrant research environment (see  forming part of the Leiden department of physics (see while it is embedded in the dutch excellence initiative Delta Institute for Theoretical Physics (see
