Project Description

It is proposed to study 2+1d relativistic interacting fermions by numerical simulations of a lattice field theory which models layered systems with very strong interactions between charge carriers, leading to superfluid ground states via condensation of particle-hole pairs known as “excitons" (see Armour et al, Phys. Rev. B92 (2015) 235143, arXiv:1509.03401). Focus will be on charge transport in such strongly-interacting systems, in particular non-linear effects such as electron viscosity, and the interlayer conductivity known as “drag”. The project will be carried out in collaboration with the Center for Complex Quantum Systems, UTexas Austin.

Entry requirements

Candidates must have a minimum of an upper second class honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject, or an appropriate Master’s degree (with Merit). Informal enquiries are welcome by emailing the project supervisor.

For candidates whose first language is not English, we require IELTS 6.5 (with 6.0 in each component) or equivalent. Please visit our website for a list of acceptable English language tests. We prefer candidates to have already met the English Language requirements at the point of application, although this is not a requirement.
