The recruited scientist will work on developing a theoretical understanding of many-body effects in quantum circuits and new materials. The work will be carried out in the framework of an ANR (SIM-CIRCUIT) grant which investigates nano-engineered circuits and systems with strong correlations possibly exhibiting quantum phase transitions.

The theoretical analysis will combine many-body techniques with a modeling of the relevant experimental systems and will aim at new predictions in regimes adapted to current technology. These studies will be performed in close interaction with the two Saclay experimental teams involved in the ANR project.

The researcher will have to interact very regularly and spend part of his research time at the laboratory LPS (Orsay) in the team of Pascal Simon, a theorist involved in the ANR project.

Work Context

The laboratory « Matériaux et Phénomènes Quantiques » (Quantum Materials and Phenomena) is a joint research unit (UMR) of University Paris Diderot and CNRS. It involves about 120 people in total, and is located within the city of Paris in France.

The laboratory specializes in the study of frontier quantum materials and in the development of quantum devices. These activities rely on a large spectrum of theoretical and experimental expertise in quantum physics, material physics, optics, transport, and technological platforms of clean-room fabrication, spectroscopy and high-resolution electronic microscopy.
