Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Protocols for Quantum Thermodynamics Measurements
Department of Materials, Parks Road, Oxford
Grade 7: £32,817 – £40,322 p.a.
We are seeking to appoint a 2-year theory postdoc to work on the theoretical description of the interplay between quantum states and vibrations in carbon nanotube devices, and establish how to utilize this interplay to monitor quantum thermodynamic processes.
The successful candidate will have a background in quantum thermodynamics/condensed matter theory with a PhD completed or near completion.
They will be knowledgeable in their field, highly self-motivated and show evidence of having actively driven research forward and completed projects on time.
They will have experience engaging with experiments, and be able to work independently as well as contributing actively to the project’s multidisciplinary team.
The successful candidate will be expected to spend a significant amount of their time in the group of Professor Janet Anders at the University of Exeter.
The project involves designing experimental protocols for a nanoelectromechanical platform, with the aim of measuring signatures of work extracted from quantum coherence.
We are a team combining experimentalist and theorists, and the specific aim of this project is to model the experimental platform and lead the design of an experimental realisation of a work-from- coherence extraction protocol for the nanomechanical platform. All applications must be made online.
You will be required to upload a CV and a Supporting Statement as part of your application. Please do not attach any manuscripts, papers, transcripts, mark sheets or certificates as these will not be considered as part of your application.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 25 June 2020. Interviews are scheduled to take place on 3 July 2020 and you must be available on this date.

Senior Research Fellow in Computational Geosciences
Department of Earth Sciences
Grade 10: £55,750 – £64,605 p.a.
The postholder will support computational geoscience in the Department by bringing modern standards of software engineering, distributed development, code maintenance/documentation, interoperability, and open-source distribution to the research groups.
This includes the interface between geophysical software and hardware, including that required for instruments such as seismometers and gravimeters.
Furthermore, the postholder will collaborate with faculty, postdoctoral a visiting scholar researchers and students to develop new software that is verified, efficient, and scalable on evolving computer architectures.
The postholder will lead research in geophysical computing in the department, and will be responsible for co-supervising and supporting research in this field for graduate students and postdoctoral scientists.
S/he will also contribute to development and grant preparation for new computational projects in collaboration with members of the Department, and the University more broadly.
S/he will be responsible for managing a small network of Linux workstations, including 2-3 shared, multi-core machines, as well as managing geophysical instrumentation.
The postholder will play a key role in the development and expansion of such computing facilities and equipment.
Candidates will in mathematics, computer science, earth sciences or physics, or a related discipline, and have significant post-qualification research experience, a recognised international authority in computational geosciences, with a high level of expertise in numerical solution of PDEs, experience in supervising students and managing staff, ability to lead an independent research programme and to work well with others in an interdisciplinary environment.
Experience mentoring graduate students and managing open-source code projects and software licenses are desirable but not essential. For further details of the responsibilities/duties, please see job description.
This is an open-ended position. The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on Monday 29 June 2020. Interviews to take place in early July 2020.
