Dear colleagues,

We have an opening for a two-year postdoctoral position in the
Quantum Mesoscopic Physics group (Rodolfo A. Jalabert and Dietmar
Weinmann) of the Institut de Physique et Chimie des Matériaux de
Strasbourg (France). The position is funded by the French ANR in
the framework of a collaboration with the Laboratoire de Physique
et Modélisation des Milieux Condensés of Grenoble (Denis Basko and
Robert Whitney).

The candidate will theoretically explore how and where dissipation
occurs in quantum transport through nanostructures, when such
transport is known to be "non-local". He/she will use modelling of
local probes of nanoscale systems to address fundamental questions
of quantum thermodynamics.

This project is motivated by recent experimental breakthroughs in
local probes that have given unprecedented spatial resolution on
where such dissipation occurs, and require quantitative
theoretical analysis.

We are looking for a candidate with a PhD in theoretical condensed
matter physics, preferably with a focus on mesoscopic physics,
quantum electronic transport, heat transport in nano-systems,
quantum thermodynamics, and/or modelization of local probes. Our
team is dedicated to equal opportunities employment, and committed
to creating an inclusive and supportive environment for the

The targeted starting date is during the first half of the year
2021. The postdoc will be based in Strasbourg, and the
collaboration implies regular working meetings at Strasbourg and
Grenoble. Applications sent before 15 December 2020 will be
preferentially treated. They should be emailed to Dietmar Weinmann

Please feel free to bring this announcement to the attention of
any possible candidate.

Best regards,

Denis Basko
