We are committed to identifying and solving grand societal challenges and building an innovative future. Aalto University has six schools with nearly 11 000 students and nearly 400 professors. Our campuses are located in Espoo and Helsinki, Finland. The newly formed group lead by Academy Research Fellow Sebastiano Peotta is looking for one PhD student on quantum many-body theory. This position is part of the project “Superfluidity, topology and disorder in lattice models with flat bands (SuperFlat)” funded by the Academy of Finland. In your research work, you will tackle the problem of how disorder affects the transport properties of a superfluid phase occurring in a flat band (a so-called flat band superfluid). An example of a flat band superfluid is the recently discovered magic angle-twisted bilayer graphene, which has attracted enormous interest in the condensed matter physics community, therefore this is a very timely research topic. Position summary The position will be filled for a four-year period between 2020 and 2025. The position is subject to a mid-term evaluation at the end of the second year, as required by the Department of Applied Physics. At the end the candidate is expected to successfully complete the doctoral dissertation at Aalto University. The salary will be based on the salary system of Finnish universities. The gross starting salary amounts approx. to 2530 €/month. Applications Candidates should send the following documents (all in English) as a single pdf-file. • Motivation letter • CV • List of publications if any • Copy of the Master’s thesis • Master’s degree certificate • Contact information of two references, possibly including the Master’s thesis supervisor The deadline for applications is 20th September 2020, but the position will remain open until filled. For questions, please contact Dr. Sebastiano Peotta (see contact information below). Aalto University reserves the right for justified reasons to leave the position open, to extend the application period, reopen the application process, and to consider candidates who have not submitted applications during the application period. https://rekry.saima.fi/aaltohome/application_edit_welcome.html?field_id=0&job_name=PhD+position+in+Quantum+Many-body+Theory+with+Focus+on+Superfluidity%2Fsuperconductivity+in+Flat+Band+Systems+in+the+Presence+of+Disorder&job_id=2890&jc=1&lang=en&place_id=102&did=5900
