Postdoctoral position in the field of ultracold atomic gases or nuclear theory

position expired
Warsaw University of Technology, Faculty of Physics Poland PL

Job Description:

The successful candidate will be investigating dynamical properties of strongly interacting fermionic superfluids being far from equilibrium state. In particular, he/she is expected to pursue studies of dynamics of quantum atomic gases (vortex and soliton dynamics, quantum turbulence) and/or dynamics of neutron star interiors, within the framework of the density functional theory, in particular with its time dependent version. Inevitably, high performance computing (HPC) will be essential part of the researches. Presently we use one of the fastest computing systems, like Piz Daint (CSCS, Switzerland), Titan (ORNL, USA) and Tsubame3.0 (GSIC Center, Japan). The candidate will be also partly involved in the software development for such systems. The position assumes also very strong collaboration with our partners from USA and Japan.

The successful candidate will be employed as a research assistant professor within the project: Investigation of quantum turbulence in strongly correlated Fermi systems (National Science Center grant), for a minimum period of 12 months, which can be extended up to 42 months.


Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree, or foreign equivalent, and a strong record of published research in condensed matter theory or in nuclear theory. We are looking for a candidate with knowledge of methods of many body quantum mechanics and possessing programming skills in C or Fortran. Knowledge of MPI or CUDA as well as experience with supercomputing will be an advantage.

Employment status: Full-time, position should start at the end of 2018 or beginning of 2019 (precise date will be decided together with successful candidate)

Salary: Depends on qualifications. From 8,000 to 10,000 PLN per month (before taxes).

Application details:

The applications including CV, publication list and research statement should be submitted to Please include the subject 'postdoc' in your email. At least one recommendation letter send by an external researcher is expected.

Application deadline: The process of collecting applications and screening candidates will be continued till successful candidates are selected but not later than December 1, 2018.

Please include in your application the following statement: “I hereby give consent to process my personal data included in the offer, for the purposes of the recruitment procedure, in accordance with the Personal Data Protection Act dated 29.08.1997 (Consolidated text: Journal of Laws of the Republic of Poland, 2016, item 922, as amended)”.
