PhD position at Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands

A 4-year PhD position is available at Radboud University in Nijmegen (the Netherlands) to theoretically study ultracold molecules.

Ultracold molecules can be a platform for new quantum technologies.
Realization of these applications has long been limited by fast losses in collisions between molecules.
We are making rapid progress to control collisions and limit these losses, bringing these applications within reach.
This makes it an exciting time to further develop the necessary tools, such as the ability to control interactions between molecules using external fields.

During your PhD, you will develop theoretical methods to compute interactions between molecules, and find out how these can be controlled using external fields -- enabling applications such as quantum simulation. To study collisions between molecules, we use quantum mechanical coupled-channels calculations using computer code developed in my group. You will work together closely with experimental collaborators in Nijmegen as well as internationally.

We ask
    • Knowledge of quantum mechanics
    • Affinity for molecular physics
    • Programming experience is a plus

The starting date is completely negotiable.
The position is for 4 years (full time). Salary, benefits, holidays etc. follow the collective labor agreement for Dutch Universities
