Research Associates in Quantum Many-Body Theory (Physics/DAMTP)

Applications are invited for two Postdoctoral Research Assistant/Associate positions, funded by an ERC Starting grant, to work with Dr B. Béri at the Department of Physics and/or the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. The posts are for theoretical investigations of quantum many-particle systems, including certain strongly correlated forms of topological phases, in part motivated by developments in solid-state quantum devices, ultracold atoms, and quantum information theory.

Closing date: 15th January 2019.

Start date: 1st September 2019, or a mutually agreed date shortly before/after. Please note that the funds for these posts are available until 31th August 2021.

Research Associate in Quantum Many-Body Theory

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position, funded by the Simons Foundation, to work with Prof Nigel Cooper. The role holder will work on the theory of quantum many-body systems. Areas of current interest within the group include topological phases of matter, light-matter interactions, and far-from-equilibrium quantum dynamics.

Closing date: 21st January 2019.

Start date: between 1st March and 1st October 2019, by mutual agreement. Please note that funds are available for two years in the first instance.

General Openings

If you are looking for independent post-doctoral opportunities, listed here are some links to prestigious fellowships in Cambridge and in the UK in general. These fellowships are competitive and often require the explicit support of a host institution. If you feel qualified to apply and would like to discuss the possibility, please contact your prospective host advisor. For those awards intended for experienced postdocs to lead their own research groups, please contact the TCM staff member to whom your research is most closely linked.

Please be sure to contact a member of the TCM group well in advance of the deadlines stated on these external pages. Advance notice is needed for the group to determine whom it can offer to host, and also to ensure any application meets the (earlier) internal University deadlines. These fellowships are competitive and the group will only support the strongest applicants. While the group tries to be flexible, we may not be able to give full consideration to expressions of interests received less than two months prior to the closing date of the call.
