About us:

College of Southampton is a world-leading analysis centre in theoretical and computational excessive power physics with a gaggle consisting 16 lecturers, 2 emeritus professors, 5 Analysis Fellows, and 30 PGR college students. Throughout the Southampton Excessive Power Physics (SHEP) group, Dr Bipasha Chakraborty leads analysis in quantum computation for top power physics. The opposite analysis pursuits of the SHEP embrace: lattice QCD, physics past the usual mannequin, particle physics and cosmology, neutrino physics, b-quark and kaon phenomenology, precise renormalization group, extra-dimensional fashions of the weak interactions, weak interplay corrections at excessive energies, twistor strategies, holography, strings and branes, and excessive density QCD. Extra data is accessible through our web site . 

In regards to the function:

SHEP invitations functions for a Analysis Fellow (post-doctoral) place to work with Dr Chakraborty on sturdy and dependable implementation of near- and medium-term quantum computations in excessive power physics. This place is for 2 years on the first occasion and is funded by a big collaborative grant EPSRC RoaRQ: Strong and Dependable Quantum Computing undertaking (in collaboration with Dr Miriam Backens at College of Birmingham, Dr Balint Koczor and Dr Zhenyu Cai on the College of Oxford, and Dr Sarah Malik at College Faculty London).  

Please word, this funding cycle will not be in sync with common theoretical excessive power physics funding cycle, and in order the hiring. Subsequently, the tentative becoming a member of date can be in October, 2023 or as quickly as attainable thereafter (we are going to contemplate circumstances the place flexibility is required). 

For casual enquiries, please contact Dr Bipasha Chakraborty, [email protected] .

About you:

The profitable applicant may have or be quickly to finish a PhD* (or equal skilled qualification and expertise) in arithmetic/theoretical physics/theoretical pc science/computational science, and have analysis expertise in quantum discipline theories and/or excessive power physics and/or quantum computation. Expertise in lattice QCD computations or numerical simulations of quantum discipline theories is desired. 

Candidates might want to apply by way of the net system to be thought of for the place. Candidates might want to add a canopy letter in assist of utility, a Curriculum Vitae, a listing of publications, and a analysis assertion together with previous analysis experiences and future analysis pursuits (most two pages lengthy), and prepare for 3 letters of reference to be uploaded by your referees on the net system by the applying deadline. In case of no earlier quantum computation analysis expertise candidates ought to tackle it of their assertion and clarify why they’re appropriate for this function. 

On the College of Southampton, we worth range and equality. The College recognises that workers might want to have working patterns that match with their caring obligations or work-life steadiness. Due consideration can even be given to candidates who’ve had profession breaks for causes together with maternity, paternity or adoption depart, incapacity or sickness. Each the College of Southampton and Physics & Astronomy are proud to carry Athena Swan Silver Awards. The Faculty of Physics & Astronomy can be a Venture Juno Champion.

*Functions for Analysis Fellow positions can be thought of from candidates who’re working in the direction of or nearing completion of a related PhD qualification.  The title of Analysis Fellow can be utilized upon profitable completion of the PhD.  Previous to the qualification being awarded the title of Senior Analysis Assistant can be given.
