Research Associate in The Theory of Photon Condensation

Applicants are invited to apply for a Postdoc position at Imperial College London. This fellowship is available for all students around the world. Applications are invited up to October 05, 2018.

Applications are invited for an enthusiastic individual Research Associate position to join our research team working across the Quantum Optics & Laser Science Group and Experimental Solid State Group within the Department of Physics at Imperial College London. with a substantial track record in theoretical quantum optics to join our research team working across the Quantum Optics & Laser Science and Experimental Solid State Groups in the Department of Physics at Imperial College London. The project involves original research on the theory of condensation of photons in microcavities. This work is funded under an EPSRC grant on "Near-equilibrium thermalised quantum light" and an EU consortium "PHOtonic QUantum Simulators" (PhoQuS) providing the opportunity to work alongside leading researchers throughout Europe in this field.

The scientific background to thermalisation and condensation of photons in microcavities can be read about in a recent review. Recent results from our group can be found in the publication lists of Robert Nyman and Florian Mintert, including articles in 2018 in Phys Rev Lett and Nature Physics. The project will move the field forward through several sub-projects on: 1. 1. Two-time quantum correlations 2. 2. Thermalisation and condensation of light in inorganic semiconductor microcavities 3. 3. Transport and superfluidity of one-dimensional driven-dissipative Bose gases of light and the search for dissipative Anderson localisation of light You will be self-motivated and be able to work alongside and assist graduate students. You will be responsible for driving the theoretical research projects highlighted above. You will also be expected to collaborate with our experimental team.

You will have a PhD (or equivalent) in the Physical Sciences or in a closely related discipline., or have an equivalent level of professional qualifications and/or experience

In addition, you must be able to demonstrate the following essential criteria: It is essential to the project that you have the following:- Hold a PhD in the Physical Sciences or in a closely related discipline, or have an equivalent level of professional qualifications and/or experience- Experience in efficient numerical techniques for simulation of many-body quantum systems (e.g. DMRG).- Experience with ensembles of quantum system (atoms, molecules or spins) coupled to quantum mechanical oscillators- Evidence of outstanding promise and originality in research, demonstrated by a good publication record, commensurate with your career stageA track record of publications commensurate with career stage. In addition to above, experience in the following areas would be advantageous: It is desirable that you also have experience in:- Semiconductor quantum optics- Nonlinear optics- Numerical electromagnetic modelling- Ultrafast pump probe measurements- Imaging and Microscopy This is a fixed term position for up to 24 months, commencing in October 2018
