The Quantum Thermodynamics group under the guidance of Patrick Potts is looking for a post-doctoral researcher. Our research is focused on out-of-equilibrium, open quantum systems.

Areas of interest include quantum thermal machines, the thermodynamics of information, quantum measurement and control, quantum sensing, as well as any related and exciting topic that you may bring to the group.

  • The position is in the field of open quantum systems and quantum thermodynamics. A special focus lies on the theoretical description of non-equilibrium systems;
  • developing and applying Fluctuation Theorems and Thermodynamic Uncertainty Relations that hold across the quantum-to-classical transition and take into account measurement backaction as well as feedback protocols.

    Theoretical advances and case-studies of physically relevant scenarios are to be combined, and analytical calculations are to be complemented with numerical studies, to ensure a balanced and thorough understanding.

    A considerable potential for independent research is expected from the post-doctoral researcher. They should bring their own ideas and approaches to the group and take on a supervisory role.

    Teaching duties that may benefit the career of the post-doctoral researcher can be discussed.

  • PhD in Physics, with a focus on open quantum systems, mesoscopic physics, quantum thermodynamics, or a related field (mandatory)
  • Proven knowledge and experience in analytical approaches to solve problems in the above-mentioned fields (mandatory)
  • Experience with basic numerical approaches to model open quantum systems (beneficial)
  • Solid background in thermodynamics, quantum theory, statistics, open quantum systems (beneficial)
  • We look forward to hiring an open-minded, creative, enthusiastic, responsible, and ambitious person with an independent work style and the ability to work in different teams and build international networks.

    Excellent written and spoken communication skills in English are required.

  • 2 year position, starting date : September 2021 (negotiable)
  • Integration in a growing and dynamic research group
  • A supportive, collaborative, and cooperative work environment with regular meetings and exchanges
  • Participation in a broad and well established international research network
  • An excellent scientific environment at Basel University
  • Application / Contact

    If you are interested in the position, please include a CV (with a list of publications and the names of three references) and a letter of motivation in your application.

    For any questions, please contact Patrick Potts ().
