Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral Research Associate role in the group of Dr Evgeny Kozik at King’s College London to work on development of diagrammatic Monte Carlo techniques for understanding and controlling mechanisms of unconventional superconductivity with a start date from 1st October 2023. Applicants are expected to have a PhD (or be awaiting its award) in the area of Theoretical/Computational Physics and a strong expertise in precision numerical methods for correlated electrons, their implementation and application. Experience with diagrammatic Monte Carlo approaches and studies of superconductivity or closely related problems is desired. The successful applicant will be part of a collaboration with the experiment group led by Dr Clifford Hicks (Birmingham) and the theory group of Prof Joseph Betouras (Loughborough).
Within King’s, the candidate will be part of the Theory & Simulation of Condensed Matter Group at the department of Physics, which belongs to the Faculty of Natural, Mathematical & Engineering Sciences (NMES). Supporting our staff is important to us and we offer a range of provision including flexible working, caring support, and training opportunities. Our staff come from over 45 countries and around 56% of our students are from outside the UK.
The university is making significant investment in the Faculty and both student and staff numbers are growing. The Department is currently undergoing significant growth with substantial investment in new appointments, research infrastructure and laboratory space refurbishment. Further details are available at www.kcl.ac.uk/nmes and http://www.kcl.ac.uk/physics.
This post will be offered on a fixed term contract for one year in the first instance, with potential for extension for up to additional three years (up to 4 years in total).
