Grade 7 (£33,199 - £39,609)

The position is to work as a theoretical postdoctoral researcher in an internationally recognized theoretical and experimental atomic and optical physics research effort, consisting of the theoretical research of Simon Gardiner, and experiments led by Charles Adams, Ifan Hughes, Matthew Jones, and Kevin Weatherill, with frequent experiment-theory collaborations. This will be working in the area of theoretical and computational study of atom-light interactions (broadly interpreted, to also extend into near infrared, ultraviolet, and terahertz regimes). Recent Durham theoretical research in this area has focused on the study of lattices of dipole-interacting ensembles of driven atoms, and an understanding of open systems and associated theoretical approaches is essential. 

This role is a 24 Months Fixed Term Contract or until 31 January 2021
