PhD Scholarship in Physics with Focus on The Theoretical Analysis of Ultra-cold Atomic Quantum Droplets

Lund University has an opening PhD position in mathematical physics. The funds for this fellowship are available for 5 years. Eligible candidates should submit the applications before July 26, 2019.

LTH forms the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, with approximately 9 000 students. The research carried out at LTH is of a high international standard and we are continuously developing our teaching methods and adapting our courses to current needs.

The Department of Physics is with a staff of about 350 scientists and educators one of the largest departments within Lund University. There are seven research divisions and a number of research centra within the department. The research activities at the department cover a broad spectrum of modern physics.

Mathematical Physics is a common division between the Natural Science and Engineering (LTH) faculties and is part of the Department of Physics. Research is conducted primarily in the field of quantum mechanical many-particle physics, which includes theoretical nuclear structure physics, nanometer physics, quantum information, atomic theory and material modelling, with numerous partnerships both internationally and within Lund University.

Job assignment

The PhD project sets focus on investigating, describing and modelling phenomena and properties of ultra-cold atomic quantum gases and liquids that can be described in the framework of many-body quantum physics.

The doctoral student is expected to work with and develop further methods in many-particle quantum physics. Focus is on the development of theoretical models to describe the properties of self-bound quantum droplets of binary or dipolar Bose-Einstein condensates. The work will imply both analytical and numerical work. There will be great flexibility to vary between analytical and numerical work, depending on the student’s preferences and interest.

The main duties of doctoral students are to devote themselves to their research studies which includes participating in research projects and third cycle courses. The work duties will also include teaching and other departmental duties (no more than 20%).

Entry requirements

A person meets the specific admission requirements if he or she has

Finally, the student must be judged to have the potential to complete the program.

Basis of assessment

Selection to third-cycle studies is based on the expected ability to perform well in the studies.

Consideration will also be given to good collaborative skills, drive and independence, and how the applicant, through his or her experience and skills, is deemed to have the abilities necessary for successfully completing the third cycle programme.

Only those admitted to third cycle studies may be appointed to a doctoral studentship. Third cycle studies at LTH consist of full-time studies for 4 years. A doctoral studentship is a fixed-term employment of a maximum of 5 years (including 20% departmental duties). Doctoral studentships are regulated in the Higher Education Ordinance (1993:100), chapter 5, 1-7 .

Application procedure

Apply online! Application must contain a covering letter in which you describe yourself and your particular research interests. Application must also include a CV, a copy of your Master's thesis (or a summary text if the thesis is not yet completed), contact details of at least two references, copies of grade certificates, and any other documents that you wish to refer to. You are also required to answer the job specific questions as the first step of the application process.
