Dear Colleague:

I would like to inform you about the opening of both a
postdoctoral position and a PhD position in Condensed Matter
Theory in Grenoble, France. I would be very grateful if you
could bring the announcement below (see also the attached
poster) to the attention of qualified candidates.

___________________________________________________________

Postdoctoral position in condensed matter theory - Grenoble,
France

Applications for a postdoctoral opening in condensed matter
theory are requested. Preference will be given to candidates
with expertise in the quantum aspects of condensed matter
physics and research interests in the general area of
superconductivity, mesoscopic physics, electron correlations,
and disordered systems. The position is for two years. It is
funded through an ANR project on the electrodynamics of
disordered superconductors.

Grenoble offers a great research environment with a number of
strong theoretical and experimental groups. The postdoctoral
work will be guided by Manuel Houzet ( href="http://inac.cea.fr/Pisp/manuel.houzet/"
moz-do-not-send="true">http://inac.cea.fr/Pisp/manuel.houzet/)
and Julia Meyer ( moz-do-not-send="true">http://inac.cea.fr/Pisp/julia.meyer/)
at INAC/PHELIQS, Université Grenoble Alpes and CEA Grenoble.
Collaborations with experimentalists and other theorists are
expected and will be encouraged.

Applicants should send a CV including a publication list and a
brief summary of research interests by email to href="mailto:julia.meyer@univ-grenoble-alpes.fr"
moz-do-not-send="true">julia.meyer@univ-grenoble-alpes.fr.
Selected preprints or reprints may also be included. Electronic
submission in a single pdf file is strongly preferred. In
addition, each applicant should arrange for two letters of
recommendation to be sent.

For full consideration please apply before January 15, 2018 –
though later applications are possible until the position is
filled.

PhD position on "Quantum transport in voltage-biased
topological Josephson junctions"

Applications for a PhD position in condensed matter theory are
requested. The PhD work will be guided by Manuel Houzet ( href="http://inac.cea.fr/Pisp/manuel.houzet/"
moz-do-not-send="true">http://inac.cea.fr/Pisp/manuel.houzet/)
and Julia Meyer ( moz-do-not-send="true">http://inac.cea.fr/Pisp/julia.meyer/)
at INAC/PHELIQS, Université Grenoble Alpes and CEA Grenoble. It
is funded through a joint ANR-NSF program on the transport
properties of superconducting hybrid structures.

Topological phases of matter have attracted much interest in
recent years. Topological superconductors are of particular
interest because they may host Majorana bound states. Josephson
junctions have been proposed as probes of topological
superconductivity, and possible signatures of such Majorana
bound states in topological Josephson junctions have indeed been
observed. However, important aspects related to the effect of
the environment on the properties of the junction are still not
fully understood. The aim of the PhD work is to make progress in
the understanding of quantum transport in voltage-biased
topological Josephson junctions in the presence of an
electromagnetic environment. More information can be found here:

moz-do-not-send="true">http://inac.cea.fr/Pisp/julia.meyer/Sujet2018-Majorana.pdf

Interested candidates should have a good basis in quantum
mechanics, statistical physics, and condensed matter physics.
Applicants should send a cover letter, a CV, as well as Master's
and Bachelor's transcripts by email to href="mailto:julia.meyer@univ-grenoble-alpes.fr"
moz-do-not-send="true">julia.meyer@univ-grenoble-alpes.fr.
Electronic submission in a single pdf file is strongly
preferred. In addition, each applicant should arrange for two
letters of recommendation to be sent.

The search will be continued until the position is filled.
