PhD position in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics
One Ph.D. position in theoretical condensed matter physics is available at the Niels Bohr Institute (NBI) in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The project will focus on theoretical studies of high-Tc superconducting systems including both cuprates and iron-based superconductors. A major goal is to apply existing techniques and develop new methods to tackle interacting systems and their emerging unconventional superconducting phase.
In collaboration with several experimental groups, the project will also contain a more empirical aspect consisting of modeling and understanding existing experimental data. It is expected that the latter aspect will be centered on the role of correlations, disorder and spin fluctuations in cuprates and iron-based superconductors.
The project will be funded by a grant for research in unconventional superconductivity. This is the first of several positions funded through this grant and more positions will follow soon.
The position will thus be part of a flourishing research environment including collaboration with researchers within the condensed matter group at NBI. Significant collaboration and exchange with other people including W. A. Atkinson, P. J. Hirschfeld, and world-leading experimental STM, neutron and X-ray scattering groups is also expected to take place. For further information on the group please see http://cms.ku.dk/nat-sites/nbi-sites/condensedmattertheory/.
The applicant should have a master´s degree in physics, preferable with a strong condensed matter background and should ideally have experience with the theory of superconducting and/or magnetic systems.
Applications should apply online http://www.nbi.ku.dk/jobs/.
The project title is "Novel Superconductivity" and the main supervisor is Brian M. Andersen. As evident from the online application form, all applicants have to upload a CV, a list of grades obtained, list of publications, and the names and contact information of up to three references. Separate letters of recommendation can be sent directly to Brian M. Andersen, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Terms of employment
The post will be filled according to the Agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The post is covered by the Protocol on Job Structure.
The deadline for applications is September 25, 2012.
The candidate should be able to start the project by end of September, 2012.
We seek excellent candidates and offer research opportunities at the forefront of theoretical physics in a stimulating international environment with an attractive salary.
