PhD position, University of Zurich, group of Prof. Titus Neupert

The Condensed Matter Theory Group at the Department of Physics of the University of Zurich invites applications for a PhD position. We look for a motivated individual with a masters degree in quantum condensed matter theory, who enjoys cracking challenging problems using both numerical and analytical approaches, and who is a good communicator as well as a great team player.

The successful applicant will work under the supervision of Prof. Titus Neupert on the exploration of quantum many-body systems and quantum materials — in particular topological phases thereof — as well as the development of quantum and classical computing methods for these systems. The PhD student will benefit from interactions with the rich local scientific environment within the group and beyond (University of Zurich, Paul Scherrer Institute, ETH Zurich) as well as close ties with many experimental groups, and will further be embedded in international collaborations. The appointment is envisioned for spring 2023, with some flexibility on the starting date. The competitive salary follows the University of Zurich salary scheme for PhD positions.
