The successful candidate will carry out research in Theoretical Physics, in the field of quantum thermodynamics and quantum transport.
The project aims to develop theories that explore how and where dissipation occurs in quantum transport through nanostructures, when this quantum transport is non-local. In particular, the modelling of local probes in nanoscale systems will be used to answer fundamental questions in the field of quantum thermodynamics


The postdoc will work in the field of theoretical physics, performing analytical and numerical calculations. The concepts of quantum transport, in particular Landauer's approach to conductance will be used. The treatment of out-of-equilibrium situations, and electron-phonon coupling should be included to describe situations of coupled electric current and heat flow. Numerical tools for solving differential equations describing these coupled electron and heat currents will be used. While the work will be done in close collaboration with the members of the research team at the IPCMS and in the partner team in Grenoble, the ability to work in relative autonomy is expected.


The ideal candidate will have experience in Condensed Matter Physics and a good knowledge of quantum transport theory and quantum thermodynamics. He/she should preferably have knowledge of numerical approaches to solving differential equations in the context of diffusion and heat flow problems.

Work Context

The work will be carried out in close collaboration with the team of Mesoscopic Quantum Physics at the Institute of Physics and Chemistry of Materials in Strasbourg (IPCMS) and with R. Whitney and D. Basko at the Laboratoire de Physique et Simulation des Milieux Condensés (LPMMC) in Grenoble. The selected candidate will be based at the IPCMS, an interdisciplinary laboratory located on the Cronenbourg Campus in Strasbourg, where about 200 people work, and will make regular visits to the LPMMC, a condensed matter theoretical physics laboratory with about 30 staff members, located on the CNRS campus in Grenoble.

Constraints and risks

Regular trips between Strasbourg and Grenoble are to be expected.
