Candidates must hold the degree of PhD, or equivalent, from a recognised university and should already have some Postdoctoral research experience. Ideal candidates should have excellent numerical programming skills and an interest in topological-condensed-matter and/or quantum information science.
The project will be based within DIAS’s School of Theoretical Physics. The School hosts a continual stream of visiting scientists and acts as a hub for theoretical physics groups in the Dublin region. As such, it offers an ideal environment for pure and focused research.
The successful candidate will participate in the Schools’s on-going efforts to characterise and stabilise quantum information in complex systems. Encouragement and opportunity will also be given to develop independent research programmes. Travel and equipment funds will be available, as well as the option to gain teaching experience and supervise PhD students.
Appointment will be on the basis of a fixed-term contract of up to 4 years with a starting gross salary of €35,489-€42,394 subject to experience. Employment for the first six months will be on a probationary basis.
