We have an opening for a postdoctoral fellowship (2 years, fixed term) in theoretical and computational physics of ultracold few-atom systems. The postdoctoral fellow will work on fundamental aspects of quantum dynamics, semiclassical quantum chaos, and stochastic computational methods applied to strongly correlated ultra-cold atom systems with short-range interactions.

A further aspect of the project is the development and implementation of stochastic algorithms for quantum dynamics and excitation spectra of closed and open quantum systems, extending the existing projector quantum Monte Carlo algorithms in the software package Rimu.jl.

The position is located at Massey University’s campus in Auckland, New Zealand. New Zealand is currently free of covid (in the community) and a wonderful place to live and work. Due to the pandemic it has border restrictions in place and thus we are particularly encouraging applicants who either reside in New Zealand or are entitled to travel to New Zealand (NZ nationals or permanent residents). We will also consider international applicants who, however, will require a border exemption for travelling to NZ.

Applications close 1 September 2021 (NZ time zone!).
