Precision Many-Body Physics - developing state-of-the-art methods for the accurate description of many-electron systems
Applications are open for a PhD studentship in Condensed Matter Theory to work on the project “Precision Many-Body Physics” in the group of Dr. Evgeny Kozik at King’s College London.
We are looking for candidates with background in field-theoretical techniques for many-body systems, such as Green’s function methods and Feynman diagrams, interest in algorithm development and artificial intelligence, as well as solid computer programming skills. The project will be focused on development of state-of-the-art methods for accurate description of many-electron systems and their application to longstanding problems of high-temperature and unconventional superconductivity, quantum magnetism, and other prominent effects of strong electron correlations. The work will involve both analytic derivations and advanced code development with the use of novel machine learning algorithms.
The successful candidate will be a part of the Theory and Simulation of Condensed Matter Group at King’s, comprising 49 members working as a team across a broad range of problems involving many-body theory in and out of equilibrium, quantum field theory and ab initio approaches, transport, dynamical mean-field theory, quantum chemistry and GW methods.
The successful candidate will be actively involved in the international Simons Collaboration on the Many-Electron Problem ( https://www.simonsfoundation.org/mathematics-physical-sciences/many-electron-problem/ ) with access to personal development through schools and international scientific events.
Full funding is available for UK / EU candidates. Applicants from other countries can apply, but would need to cover international student fees from other sources.
Applications are considered on a rolling basis.
Start date: September 2018.
