LPTMS Postdoc: Condensed Matter Theory

A postdoctoral position for two years is available for a candidate interested in statistical physics and condensed matter theory at LPTMS, a joint laboratory of CNRS and University Paris-Saclay. This position starts in the fall of 2018. The deadline for the application is November, 1, 2017.

The candidate is expected to study the interplay of thermalization and many-body localization in open quantum systems out of equilibrium. The candidate should have good background in statistical/condensed matter physics.

This position is financed by the ANR grant “Thermalization and Localization in quantum systems” and will include strong collaborations with Denis Basko and Markus Holzmann (LPMMC, Grenoble). Collaborations with Fabien Alet and Nicolas Laflorencie (LPT, Toulouse) are also encouraged. Depending on project and the candidate's expertise and preferences, the work might range from mostly analytical to largely numerical.

Applications including a CV, a list of publications, a brief description of past research and future interests should be sent to Claudine Le Vaou by email at secretariat.lptms@lptms.u-psud.fr
Applicants should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address. Informal inquiries welcome.
