Joining us

We are always interested to hear from talented and motivated scientists. If you wish to join the group, please get in touch (animesh dot datta at warwick dot ac dot uk).


Applications are invited for one Postdoctoral Research Assistant to study mechanisms of energy transport in multi-chromophore systems.

The post is available initially for fixed-term duration of 24 months, with extensions of 12 or more months contingent on additional funding.

The starting date is expected to be no later than September 01, 2017.

The post will develop theoretical techniques for studying excitonic energy transport in nanoscale multi-chromophore systems using analytical and numerical tools from open quantum systems theory as well as computational modelling of multidimensional spectroscopy. Particular emphasis is to be placed on designing novel experimental proposals to study non-classical correlations in artificial and natural light harvesting systems using multidimensional optical spectroscopy. We will seek to combine methods from physical chemistry with concepts from quantum information theory to isolate and identify non-classical correlations in these systems.

Application deadline: April 23, 2017. Apply here.

For informal enquiries, please get in touch (animesh dot datta at warwick dot ac dot uk) exlpaining why you are suitable for this position, along with your CV, publication list, and a statement of interest.

Enquiries from outstanding candidates in quantum information theory who seek support for external fellowship applications are welcome at any time. Please include a CV, publication list, and cover letter, detailing potential funding agencies. All of these applications require endorsement from our research group and the department. So, get in touch (animesh dot datta at warwick dot ac dot uk) well in advance of the deadlines.

Potential sources of funding include Newton International Fellowships, Royal Commission for the exhibition of 1851, EPSRC, The Leverhume Society, Marie Curie actions, JSPS, SNSF, The Branco Weiss Foundation, US NSF, Canadian NSERC, University of Warwick (IAS), AXA Research Fund.

There may also be fellowships available from your home country as well as other institutions.


We are offering a PhD project on Mechanisms of quantum-enhanced excitonic energy transport. The chosen candidate will be supported by either the Chancellor's International Scholarship and/or the Warwick-China Scholarship. Please select one or both (as per your eligibilty) and apply here.

Deadline: January 09, 2017.

To make informal enquiries, get in touch (animesh dot datta at warwick dot ac dot uk) with a CV, degree grades/marks, a research statement stating why, and how your past expertise and experience is useful for this position.

There are also a number of scholarships available through the university, such as the extremely competitive Chancellor's International Scholarship. Look out for the deadlines and get in touch (animesh dot datta at warwick dot ac dot uk) well in advance if you want to be considered. Informal enquires are encouraged as early as possible; please include a CV.

Undergraduate/Masters/Summer projects

Get in touch (animesh dot datta at warwick dot ac dot uk) with your grades and interests. We should be able to find something to work on.

We can also accommodate talented and committed undergraduate students for short research projects in the group over summer through the Warwick Undergraduate Research Scholarship Scheme (URSS). Enquires from prospective students are welcome at all times, although advanced expressions of interest for summer projects is advised.
