Postdoc positions in many-body quantum theory for superconductivity, topology and quantum geometry

position expired
Aalto University Finland FI

Two theory postdoc positions are available in the group of Prof Päivi Törmä. The research in these positions will be directed towards understanding the significance of quantum geometry and topology on the macroscopic quantum state of bosonic and fermionic many-body systems. The emphasis will be on superfluidity, superconductivity and Bose-Einstein condensation, ordered phases competing with these, and the corresponding normal state properties. Your main responsibility is to study superconductivity and related phases in fermionic systems, in particular in the context of ultracold gases and moire materials such as twisted bilayer graphene, and to explore the effect of quantum geometry on superfluidity in bosonic systems with a connection to the experiments done in our group. Since two postdocs will be hired, you can specialize to only a subset of these topics according to your interests. The group has a powerful dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT) code, and it is desired that at least one of the postdocs would utilize it in the research.
