DODD-WALLS CENTRE & DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS

About us/Mō mātou

The University of Otago is New Zealand’s oldest university, with its Physics Department a founding element of the University. The Dodd-Walls Centre is a national Centre of Research Excellence, providing opportunities for collaboration across world class experimental and theoretical quantum physics groups.

The Role/Te mahi

A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in Theoretical Quantum Physics is available in the Dodd-Walls Centre at the Department of Physics.  The position is in the group of the Centre’s Director, Professor David Hutchinson, and will support the research programme of the group.

The main research aims of the group involve the theoretical studies of ultracold atomic gases and, in particular, the effects of disorder upon properties of cold gases. A strong theoretical background in ultracold gases or condensed matter physics is strongly desirable, although candidates with backgrounds that complement Professor Hutchinson’s other research interests will be considered.

PhD scholarships are also available within the group.

Further details/Pūroko

This position is fixed-term, full-time for two years.

Specific enquiries may be directed to Professor Hutchinson via the contact details on the Current Vacancies page at: Postdoctoral Fellow in Theoretical Quantum Physics
