Two Postdoctoral Positions in Theoretical Ultracold Atoms

Location
Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia

Description
http://www.swinburne.edu.au/cqos, please see “Latest News and Events”. We are advertising two theoretical postdoctoral positions at the Centre for Quantum and Optical Science (CQOS): Academic Level A6-A8 (x2): $ 76,531 – 82,110 plus 17% superannuation – Fixed-term position for two years, commencing August 2015. Two Postdoctoral Research Fellows with strong theoretical skills and a solid background in ultracold quantum gases and quantum physics are sought to work on existing projects, funded by the Australian Research Council, with Assoc. Prof. Xia-Ji Liu and Hui Hu. The research will be carried out at the Theory Group in the Centre for Quantum and Optical Science. One Postdoctoral Research Fellow will work on a project that understands Majorana fermions using the controllable setting of ultracold atomic Fermi gases. The research will focus on creating atomic topological superfluids, probing Majorana fermions and giving realistic proposals for Majorana fermions towards their real-world applications. The position will be available on the full-time basis for up to two years. The other Level A Postdoctoral Research Fellow will work on a project that involves the theoretical study of spin-orbit coupled atomic Bose and Fermi gases. The research aims to better understand novel topological states of matter, which underlie new generation materials known as topological insulators and superconductors. The position will be available on the full-time basis for up to two years. In addition to independent research activities, the incumbent at all levels will be responsible for the supervision of postgraduate students working on the project, writing up results for publication and presenting results at conferences. All applicants must supply a CV, bibliography, a brief statement of research interests and a research proposal. For further information, including contact details, position descriptions, and access to the online submission form, please visit https://swinjobs.nga.net.au/ and search for Job Ref. S150082.
