PhD fellow in Condensed Matter Theory

Department of Physics, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship in condensed matter theory commencing 1. October 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.  
 
Description of the scientific environment  
The project will be funded by a post doc fellowship grant through the Carlsberg foundation. The position will be part of a growing research environment including collaboration with researchers within the broader condensed matter theory group at the Niels Bohr Institute. Significant collaboration with other people including K. Flensberg, P. Hedegård, M. Rudner, J. Paaske, I. Eremin, R. M. Fernandes, P. J. Hirschfeld, and world-leading experimental STM, neutron and X-ray scattering groups is expected to take place. For further information on the group please see http://cmt.nbi.ku.dk.  
 
Project description  
The position is aimed at theoretical studies of magnetic and superconducting systems including cuprates, iron-based superconductors, and topological superconductors. It is expected that significant efforts will be centered on general aspects of correlations, and spin and charge fluctuations on e.g. the pairing properties of iron-based superconductors. Another important branch of exploration will be centered on new proposals for generation of topological superconductivity and exploration of the associated Majorana fermions.  
 
Principal supervisor is Prof. Brian M. Andersen, Niels Bohr Institute, E-mail: bma@fys.ku.dk, Direct Phone: +4550468651.

Terms of employment  
The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff.  
 
Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.

Please include  
• Cover Letter  
• CV  
• Diploma and transcripts of records (BSc and MSc)  
• Acceptance Letter for the relevant MSc Programme at SCIENCE, if any  
• Other information for consideration, e.g. list of publications (if any),  
• Full contact details (Name, address, telephone & email) of 1-3 professional referees  
 
The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.  
 
The deadline for applications is 10. September 2017, 23:59 GMT +1. Applications received after the deadline for applications will not be considered.
