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.
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.
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.
