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 EPSRC, 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.

The Department is strongly committed to promoting equality and diversity, including the Athena SWAN charter for gender equality in higher education. The School holds a Silver Award which recognises their good practice in relation to gender; including flexible working arrangements, family-friendly policies, and support to allow staff achieve a good work-life balance.
