Job Title:
Research Fellow in theoretical quantum optics and cold
atomic physics
School/Department:
School of Physics and Astronomy
Salary:
£28,132 - £35,597 per annum, depending on qualifications
and experience
Job Family and Level:
RT Level4
Contract Status:
Fixed term ends 31 August 2015

Location:
School of Physics and
Nottingham, NG7 2RD
Reporting to:
Head of School
Astronomy,
University
Park,
Job Outline:
The project is to carry out research on the interaction of light with cold atomic gases. One
focus will be on the study of the emergence of correlations in the ground state and excited
state of this system and its use as quantum simulator for field-theoretical models. The
researcher will be an integral part of an interdisciplinary team of researchers covering a broad
range of topics including statistical physics, condensed-matter theory, computational physics,
atomic physics and quantum optics, and soft-matter. We seek a motivated, skilled and highly
independent researcher. The post commences on or after 1 st September 2014.
Main Duties and Responsibilities:
The main responsibility of this post will be to carry out independent theoretical research on
quantum many-body systems formed by cold atoms interacting with ligth. The researcher is
moreover expected to actively contribute to the research activities of the condensed matter
theory group at the School of Physics and Astronomy.
This job description may be subject to revision following discussion with the person appointed
and forms part of the contract of employment.
