Applications are invited for an "Irish Research Council Laureate Project Fellow", level 2 postdoctoral position in condensed matter theoretical physics, to join the Theoretical Nanoelectronics Group led by Dr Andrew Mitchell in the School of Physics at University College Dublin. The position is funded through the prestigious ‘Laureate’ programme of the Irish Research Council, for 2 years in the first instance, and with funding in place for renewal for a further 2 years.
The project concerns quantum transport through single-molecule junctions, especially those in which strong electron interactions and/or quantum interference effects play a key role. The successful applicant will have a PhD in quantum condensed matter theory, with experience of quantum transport in nanostructures, simulation, or strongly correlated quantum systems. The group benefits from existing collaborations with leading experimental groups. Generous funding is available for equipment and travel.
