Postdoctoral position in theory of quantum transport, Birmingham, UK

A Research Fellow position (fixed-term for up to 2 years initially, with a possible extension to three years) is available for a postdoctoral researcher in theory of quantum transport in strongly interacting semiconducting systems.

The candidate will work as part of a larger team funded with EPSRC program grant entitled “Non-Ergodic Quantum Manipulation” (EP/R029075/1 ) headed by Professor Sir Michael Pepper at UCL as well as researchers in experimental groups from Royal Holloway (RHUL) and University of Cambridge. The project will explore ways of decoupling the charged carriers from energy loss mechanisms which has potential applications in quantum technologies.

A successful candidate, who would work under the management of Professors Igor Lerner and Mike Gunn in a close collaboration with experimental groups in UCL, RHUL and Cambridge, must hold or be close to completing a PhD in theoretical physics or applied maths with a proven track record in theory of quantum transport and/or strongly correlated electron systems. Preference will be given to candidates with relevant research experience as demonstrated by publications in major journals and presentations at international conferences.

Main duties will include:

  • Participating in and conducting research activities of national/international repute
  • Analysing and interpreting experimental information
  • Formulating and developing adequate simplified models for multi-electron dynamics in the presence of strong disorder.

Our University actively supports equality, diversity and inclusion and encourages applications from all sections of society from the UK, Europe and across the globe.

The position expects to start in September 2019 or as early
