The Many-body Quantum Dynamics Group, led by Prof Ulrich Schneider, of the Department of Physics, invites applications for postdoctoral positions on experimental research on many-body dynamics using ultracold atomic gases and optical lattices.
You will design and carry out experimental investigations together with a team of PhD and undergraduate students. In addition, you will communicate research findings through publications, talks, or lectures, contribute to the infrastructure of the research group, and assist with the training of students.
We are looking for an experimental quantum-optics/cold-atoms expert with (or being close to complete) a PhD in physics or a related area. Specific experience with ultracold atoms, optical lattices, or tweezer arrays is advantageous. Knowledge of the theory of many-body physics and condensed matter physics or related numerical techniques is helpful.
More information on our research can be found at: www.manybody.phy.cam.ac.uk
In addition to our main experiments on Quantum Simulations in Optical Quasicrystals and a Kagome Quantum Gas Microscope, we are also starting a new activity on Tweezer Arrays with Strontium Atoms for Quantum Information and Sensing applications.
Current Postdoc opportunities include fundamental many-body physics in Optical Quasicrystals, or being part of the UK Quantum Technology Hub and developing lattice and tweezer-based quantum simulators.
This position is dependent on the applicant having a PhD including those who have submitted but not yet received their PhD (in which case appointment will initially be made at research assistant and amended to research associate when the PhD is awarded).
The position is available immediately but the starting date can be negotiated individually.
Further information on the scientific details may be obtained from: Prof Ulrich Schneider (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Administrative inquiries should be addressed to: email@example.com.
Please ensure that you upload your Curriculum Vitae (CV), a covering letter and a list of publications in the Upload section of the online application. The closing date for applications is 15/8/23 and first informal online interviews and informal visits can happen also before the application closes.
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 2 years in the first instance.
Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.
Please quote reference KA37320 on your application and in any correspondence about this vacancy.
