=====================================



Research Fellow in quantum thermodynamics



Applications are invited for the post of Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Quantum Thermodynamics based at the University of Surrey, United Kingdom, in the group of Dr Andrea Rocco.



The post is funded by the John Templeton Foundation as part of a major multidisciplinary research project entitled “Life on the Edge: quantum thermodynamics, quantum biology and the arrow of time” that aims to elucidate how irreversibility emerges from quantum mechanics.



The overall project is organized into a series of parallel, complementary and interconnected themes, led by different academics across a range of disciplines (theoretical physics, computational chemistry, applied mathematics, molecular biology and philosophy). The successful candidate for this post will undertake research in a vibrant, inter-disciplinary research environment with excellent reputation and collaborations, and will be one of five RAs working on this multidisciplinary project.



The focus of this specific theme is to analyse the impact of different environmental dynamics on macroscopic thermodynamic properties. This will involve adapting the standard open quantum systems approach to the case when there is no timescale separation between system of interest and thermal bath, with memory kernels described by inverse power laws in extreme memory-reach cases, leading to effective fractional-order dynamics.



Candidates for this post should have a PhD in Theoretical Physics with a research focus on statistical mechanics and/or open quantum systems. Previous postdoctoral experience is an advantage, but not necessary. The research fellow will be expected to bring expertise in equilibrium and nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, open quantum systems theory, and/or fractional calculus.



This position is for 2.5 years, starting at any point between 1 December 2021 and 1 March 2022.



For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Dr Andrea Rocco via email at mail to: [log in para visualizar]<mailto:[log in para visualizar]>. For further details and for applying please visit https://jobs.surrey.ac.uk/vacancy.aspx?ref=055421 .



Deadline is 31 October 2021.
