We invite applications for the position of Research fellow in Condensed Matter Theory.
Topic of the research project is quantum simulation with ultracold atoms and molecules. The research will be done in close collaboration with the Condensed Matter Theory group (Kareljan Schoutens in particular) and Florian Schreck's Strontium Quantum Gases group.
Key areas of interest will be topological band structures and states of matter, quantum magnetism, and many-body systems with long-range interactions. A unique opportunity of this position is the close connection of theory and experiments, which will allow us to implement some of the developed ideas in a strontium quantum gas microscope or with ultracold RbSr groundstate molecules. There’s flexibility for pursuing your own research agenda as long as it broadly aligns with proposed activities. You will conduct the research ogether with the two PIs, one theory PhD student and four experimental PhD students or postdoctoral researchers.
- PhD degree in Physics;
- expertise in the area of the research project;
- the ability to work independently as well as in a team;
- good communication skills (English).
The appointment will be for a period of 3 years. The salary ranges between €2.599 and €4.084 in dependence of experience. An 8% holiday allowance and an 8.3% end-of-year bonus will be added. Favorable tax agreements may apply to non-Dutch applicants. The Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities (Cao) is applicable.
