Research Assistant / Associate in Quantum Many-Body Theory (Fixed Term)

Limit of Tenure: 24 months in the first instance (Earliest possible start date 1st September 2019 but no later than 1st October 2019)

Applications are invited for Research Assistants / Associates 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, University of Cambridge.
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, ultra-cold atoms and quantum information theory.

The successful candidates will have a PhD (or be close to obtaining) in condensed matter theory or a closely related subject. They will have demonstrated a strong background in the theory of quantum many-body systems, including expertise in relevant mathematical and/or numerical approaches (e.g., quantum/statistical field theory, matrix product state methods and / or exact diagonalisation). Familiarity with the theory of topological phases and quantum information theory is desirable.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate experience in writing reports, presenting results, drafting and contributing to academic papers, as evidenced by a strong publication record in leading international journals in the field. Further essential requirements include: the ability to work productively in a team, to communicate clearly and to present data to other members of the group and collaborators; experience in managing one's own workload; high level of accuracy and attention to detail. Applicants will continually update their knowledge in the specialist area and engage in continuous professional development.

The post holder will be located in the Cavendish Laboratory, Department of Physics and/or Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), Centre for Mathematical Sciences.
