Работодатель: Department of Physics, Clarendon Laboratory, Oxford

Тип: PhD position; Vacancy for students or masters;

Для кого: For researchers;


The project will investigate fundamental aspects of non-equilibrium physics using ultracold atoms including thermalisation, the KT transition and universality. We have developed highly innovative experimental techniques to trap 2D quantum gases in a double-well potential created by multiple radio frequencies. Using this potential, we are making interferometric measurements to determine the probability distribution function of the quantum wave function. The cold-atom apparatus is used as a 'quantum simulator' of many-body phases. For further details see:

The successful candidate will carry out experimental research as part of a team. Tasks will include presenting results at conferences and co-authoring research papers, sharing responsibility for safe laboratory practice, especially laser systems, and assisting with some administrative duties . The post-holder will have the opportunity to teach, including small group teaching, tutoring of undergraduates and graduate students, or demonstrating experiments on the practical course.

Applicants should hold a PhD, or be near completion, in physics or a related field and a strong background in experimental atomic physics.

Candidates are expected to demonstrate proven research skills in a relevant area including operating complex experimental apparatus, motivation and the ability to work as part of a team, experience of analysing data and publishing results, experience in experimental design and purchasing of equipment alongside good communication and presentation skills.
