Research Associate in Condensed Matter Theory and Modelling of Quantum 2D Materials (2 Posts)
Oxford Road, Manchester

Job reference: S&E-14329

Location: Oxford Road, Manchester

Closing date (DD/MM/YYYY): 02/09/2019

Salary: £32,236 - £39,609 per annum (according to experience)

Employment type: Fixed Term

Department: Science and Engineering

Division: Condensed Matter, Atomic and Biological Physics

Hours per week: Full Time

Contract Duration: 01 October 2019 until 30 September 2020

This is an opportunity for talented researchers in condensed matter theory to study physical properties (electronic band structure, electronic transport, optical and thermoelectric) of two-dimensional materials, their heterostructures, and devices based on such materials.

They are based at the National Graphene Institute (NGI), a brand-new world-class science and technology Centre with a broad scope of research in two-dimensional materials.

We seek theorists with experience (proven by publications record) in physics of two-dimensional materials, quantum transport studies, or in strongly correlated quantum systems. Skills in field-theory methods in condensed matter theory or ab initio modelling using density functional theory will be equally welcome.

Funding is provided by the European Research Council Synergy Grant Hetero2D, which involves collaboration with experimental groups at the NGI and Cambridge Graphene Centre.

Applications should be made online (see below) by the deadline. With your application you should upload a single file comprising your CV, list of publications, and a brief (max 1 page) research statement summarising your research interest, practical experience in condensed matter theory, and career aspirations.
