We are looking for a PhD student in theoretical physics to work on the interface between condensed matter theory, emergence, and quantum foundations, as part of a collaborative project involving experimental and theoretical groups in Leiden and Amsterdam.
What are you going to do?
In this project we will use the tools of condensed matter physics to theoretically model ongoing experimental work in the areas of emergence and quantum foundations, and to formulate proposals and predictions for future experiments. We will collaborate closely with both experimental and theoretical groups in Leiden and Amsterdam.
What do we require?
- A MSc degree in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics;
- an affinity both with real experimental data, and with abstract theoretical argument;
- preferably, some experience in either emergence, quantum information, or quantum foundations, in the context of condensed matter theory;
- fuency in English, both written and spoken.
A temporary contract for 38 hours per week for the duration of 4 years (initial appointment will be for a period of 18 months and after satisfactory evaluation it will be extended for a total duration of 4 years) and should lead to a dissertation (PhD thesis). We will draft an educational plan that includes attendance of courses and (international) meetings. We also expect you to assist in teaching undergraduates and master students.
The salary, depending on relevant experience before the beginning of the employment contract, will be €2,325 to €2,972 (scale P) gross per month, based on a full-time contract (38 hours a week). These amounts are exclusive 8 % holiday allowance and 8,3% end-of-year bonus. A favourable tax agreement, the ‘30% ruling’, may apply to non-Dutch applicants. The Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities is applicable.
