Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
Ultracold atomic gases have emerged as an ideal platform for investigating the physics of strongly correlated materials in a highly controllable environment. The Theory of Quantum Matter group at Monash University works primarily at the interface between condensed matter physics and the physics of ultracold atoms. We are particularly interested in systems where strong few-body correlations impact the many-body behaviour. As such, we investigate a wide range of topics, including few-body systems, impurities in degenerate quantum matter, systems out of equilibrium, and low-dimensional systems.
Applications should have a strong background in theoretical physics. Experience with few- and/or many-body physics of ultracold gases would be advantageous, although it is not necessary. A number of speciﬁc research directions are possible, depending on the student’s interests.
