Post-Doctoral position
Localization of quantum states in nonlinear Schrödinger Hamiltonians
•	Salary: 33,000 € – 44,000 € per annum
•	Limit of tenure: 24 months
We are seeking to find a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on the properties of quantum states for nonlinear Schrödinger.  The position will be based at the Centre Borelli, located at ENS Paris Saclay (Palaiseau, France).
The successful candidate will join an international project supported by the Simons Foundation on ‘Localization of Waves’. It builds on a recent theoretical breakthrough called the ‘localization landscape’. This interdisciplinary collaboration brings together mathematical tools from harmonic analysis, partial differential equations and probability, with high performance computational simulations and state-of-the-art experimental investigations of ultra-cold atoms and semiconductors. The goal of the project is a unified understanding of wave localization, enabling the solution of some of the most compelling puzzles in modern condensed matter physics and gaining control over the behavior of waves in disordered media.
The activity will develop understanding of the localization of quantum states of a nonlinear Hamiltonian (e.g. Gross-Pitaevskii equation). This type of model plays an important role for instance in mimicking the behavior of a large number of interacting atoms in a Bose-Einstein Condensate. We are looking for a researcher able to develop numerical simulations within the ‘localization landscape’ formalism, and who will be able to work closely with the theoretical team  of Prof. Filoche at Ecole Polytechnique and the experimental team of Prof. Aspect at IOGS (Palaiseau, France), as well as with the other modelling activities across the Simons Foundation ‘Localization of Waves’ project. This researcher will have many opportunities to work within the consortium, including mathematicians at the University of Minnesota and MIT.
Further information can be found on the Simons collaboration website: 
Candidates will have a Ph.D. in Physics, Applied Mathematics, Engineering or a related area, will demonstrate high levels of motivation and enthusiasm, and will have an excellent publication record.  The ability to work both as part of a team, and independently, coupled with excellent communication, organizational and problem-solving skills is also required. Direct experience of the modeling and numerical simulations of semiconductor materials is required. Programming skills are expected.
The position is available from September 1st, 2020. 
Informal inquires can be addressed via email to Prof. Frédéric Dias ( Please include a curriculum vitae while doing so.
Applicants should provide a CV, including contact details of two referees, a list of publications and a cover letter describing their suitability for the position.
Closing date: until position filled
