Research Associate Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics/quantum Optics

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral associate position in condensed matter physics at University of Cambridge. This fellowship is available for all students around the world. This position is available for 24 months. The deadline for applying is October 07, 2018.

Applications are invited for a research associate investigating Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics/Quantum Optics at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge.

The successful candidate will join the research group of Dr Andreas Nunnenkamp, and will investigate inter alia feedback control and reservoir engineering, topological phases of light and sound as well as disorder and synchronization in multimode optomechanics. The role is funded by the H2020 FET proactive grant “Hybrid Optomechanical Technologies”. The close collaboration with partner institutions, e.g. HITACHI Cambridge Lab and EPFL, is envisioned.

The candidate must hold (by the start date) a PhD in theoretical quantum optics, condensed matter theory, or closely related discipline. Strong background in the theory of open and/or many-body quantum systems is highly desirable. Background in optomechanics is desirable, but not essential. The candidate should have a publication record commensurate with their career stage, and they must be able to demonstrate the capacity for independent research.

The appointment will be on the Research Associate scale at a level determined by skills and experience. Expenses for travel and computing associated with the project will be provided. Funding is available immediately. Start date negotiable, ideally not later than 1st Jan 2019.

Limit of tenure: The funds for this post are available for 24 months in the first instance, but the current funding of this position will end on 31st Dec 2020, irrespective of the start date.

The closing date for applications is 7th Oct 2018.

Please ensure that you upload your Curriculum Vitae (CV) including a list of publications and the contact details of at least two referees and a covering letter in the Upload section of the online application. If you upload any additional documents which have not been requested, we will not be able to consider these as part of your application.
