Postdoctoral Positions in Condensed Matter Theory

Applications are invited for two new postdoctoral positions to perform research on the theory of condensed matter working with J T Chalker, F H L Essler, and S H Simon. Position (i) is supported from an EPSRC grant held jointly by all three faculty members, to work on a wide range of problems involving non-equilibrium dynamics, strongly correlated quantum systems, and systems with topological order. Position (ii) is supported from an EPSRC grant held by F H L Essler, to work on the non-equilibrium quantum dynamics of ultra-cold low dimensional atomic Fermi gases. Successful PDRA candidates will hold (or be about to complete) a PhD/ DPhil in Physics, or a closely related field. The postholders are expected to conduct research in collaboration with the theoretical condensed matter physics group at Oxford University. Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. To apply for this position and for further details, including a job description, please click on the links below: For position (i) For position (ii) Note that candidates who wish to be considered for both positions must submit two online applications. Only applications received before midday on Friday 25 January 2013 can be considered. You will be required to upload a CV and list of publications, statement of research interests, and details of two referees who should be asked to email letters of recommendation by the closing date to

Current interests include: strongly correlated quantum systems, statistical physics, disordered systems, and complex fluids. Information on the research groups, including a complete listing of faculty members, is available from: and

Applications with a curriculum vitae, which includes nationality, a brief report on research to date and the names and addresses of two or more referees (who should be asked to write separately by the same deadline) should be emailed to or sent to Miss V. Bateman, Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics, 1 Keble Road, Oxford OX1 3NP, UK by 14th January 2008, quoting reference DR07/003.
