PhD position
Oct. 1, 2020 - April 1, 2024 , University of Exeter

We are looking for motivated students to work on the thermodynamics of strongly coupled open quantum systems and tweak the design of quantum-thermodynamic cooling cycles. This award provides annual funding to cover UK/EU/International tuition fees and a tax-free stipend. The studentship will be awarded on the basis of merit for 3.5 years of full-time study to commence in October 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. Earlier start dates can be discussed.

PhD student position in quantum matter and open quantum systems
April 27, 2020 - April 30, 2020 , University of Jyväskylä

We seek talented doctoral students to work in an inspiring environment, in one of the following theory projects linking condensed matter theory and open quantum systems - Interplay of superconductivity and magnetism out of equilibrium - Correlated electronic states in quantum matter - Optical response of quantum matter with non-trivial topology

Postdoc position in the theory of stochastic phenomena in driven superconductor/ferromagnet systems
April 27, 2020 - May 17, 2020 , University of Jyväskylä

We seek a postdoc to work on the theory of hybrid superconductor/ferromagnet structures driven out of equilibrium, in particular the stochastic magnetization dynamics affected by superconductivity, and the physics of SUPERTEDs, superconducting thermoelectric detectors.

Postdoctoral fellow in Nanoscale and Quantum Thermodynamic, theory
Feb. 24, 2020 - March 16, 2020 , Lund University

The research will be based on the project “Information-to-work conversion from classical to quantum – a nanoscale electronic demon in double quantum dots”, supported by the Foundational Questions Institute under the call “Information as Fuel”. The subject is theory for stochastic and quantum thermodynamics in nanoscale systems, with a focus on statistical properties of thermodynamical quantities such as work, heat and entropy production.

Research Assosciate in Theoretical Chemistry/Physics
Feb. 1, 2020 - March 31, 2020 , University of Manchester

An ERC-funded Research Associate position is available to undertake research in the field of open quantum systems, molecular magnetism and vibronic coupling. This position is part of the “ContraVib: Chemical Control of Vibronic Coupling for Magnetic Materials” project, that seeks to use high quality physical measurements and state-of-the-art theoretical techniques to develop guidelines for the chemical control of vibronic coupling.
