    Qualifications

    You must hold a PhD degree in physics or a closely related field

    Preference

    You are expected to have experience with programming within the area of strongly-correlated quantum many-body systems, and experience with exact diagonalization is an advantage.
    A solid background in quantum physics is required, and experience with anyons or nonthermal physics is an advantage

    Responsibilities/ Job Description

    The successful applicant will join our team working on strongly correlated systems. The applicant will develop new types of models, which display topological order or nonthermal properties and will investigate how different phenomena influence the properties of the models. The investigations of the constructed models will involve extensive numerical simulations on our computer cluster. The applicant is also expected to contribute to disseminating the results.

    About the Department

    The Department of Physics and Astronomy is a department at the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Aarhus University, Denmark. The main objectives of the Department are to carry out research at the highest international level, to offer research based teaching at Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and PhD levels, and to exchange knowledge with other areas of society, e.g. by offering our expertise to industrial partners and the business world.

    The Department is an attractive workplace for researchers, teachers, technicians, laboratory technicians and administrators and has a good study environment with many talented and active students at all levels. The research at the Department of Physics and Astronomy is of high quality, attracts significant international attention – in several fields the Department is within the world elite – and is characterized by many international collaborations with other high-ranking universities and research institutions around the world.

    We are a research group that has recently moved to Aarhus University from the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems. We do cutting edge research in the area of strongly-correlated quantum many-body systems with connections to both condensed matter and quantum optics. The position will be funded through the Sapera Aude program of the Independent Research Fund Denmark or through the Carlsberg Foundation.
