Postdoctoral position in the Quantware group (Toulouse)

A postdoctoral position opens in autumn 2012 in the Quantware group of the Laboratory for Theoretical Physics, CNRS and University Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France. The position is funded by the LABEX NEXT in the framework of the grant ENCOQUAM (Engineering of Complex Quantum Matter Waves) attributed to a team composed of the permanent researchers Bertrand Georgeot (theory) and David Guery-Odelin (experiments).

The research project is centered on theoretical studies of the physics of cold atoms, Bose Einstein condensates, complex wave phenomena and quantum chaos, in connection with experiments realized in the cold atom group of David Guery-Odelin.
The candidate should have a good knowledge of quantum mechanics, theoretical physics and computer simulations. Expertise in quantum chaos, cold atoms or quantum optics would be an advantage. Citizenship does not matter.

The Quantware group is part of the Laboratory for Theoretical Physics (CNRS and Paul Sabatier University). The Laboratory is internationally recognized in the fields of mesoscopic physics, many-body interaction systems, high Tc superconductivity, quantum and classical chaos, statistical physics.

The position is available for 18 months and should be extendable to a total of two years. In addition to the salary, the health insurance, the retirement and unemployment benefits, and the support for travels will be provided. The successful candidate is expected to take the position by autumn 2012, but the precise date can be shifted by mutual agreement.

Applicants should provide a CV with the list of publications, a motivation letter,
and arrange for two or more letters of recommendation to be sent (all preferably via e-mail) to :
