The Institute of Physics (IoP) of the Faculty of Science has a two-year postdoctoral position is available at the Institute for Theoretical Physics of the University of Amsterdam, in the group of prof. J.-S. Caux, starting in September 2018.

This position is part of an ongoing initiative aiming to develop nonperturbative methods for in- and out-of-equilibrium systems in low dimensions, in the context of quantum magnetism, cold atoms and nanoscale solid-state systems. Exceptional candidates with a PhD in theoretical physics and a strong background in integrability and the Bethe Ansatz, field theory, bosonization and numerical methods are particularly encouraged to apply.


  • PhD degree in Theoretical Physics;
  • the ability to work independently as well as in a team;
  • good communication skills (English).


The full-time appointment will be on a temporary basis for a period of two years. The monthly gross salary will range between €3,111 and €4,084 (scale 10 according to the Collective Employment Agreement of the Dutch Universities) based on a full-time appointment. We offer a pension scheme, a holiday allowance of 8% per year, an end-of-year bonus of 8.3% and flexible employment conditions. Conditions are based on the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities. Favourable tax agreements may apply to non-Dutch applicants.

With over 5,000 employees, 30,000 students and a budget of more than 600 million euros, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) is an intellectual hub within the Netherlands. Teaching and research at the UvA are conducted within seven faculties: Humanities, Social and Behavioural Sciences, Economics and Business, Law, Science, Medicine and Dentistry. Housed on four city campuses in or near the heart of Amsterdam, where disciplines come together and interact, the faculties have close links with thousands of researchers and hundreds of institutions at home and abroad.

The UvA’s students and employees are independent thinkers, competent rebels who dare to question dogmas and aren’t satisfied with easy answers and standard solutions. To work at the UvA is to work in an independent, creative, innovative and international climate characterised by an open atmosphere and a genuine engagement with the city of Amsterdam and society.
