Warwick Physics seeks to make two academic appointments in the area of condensed matter physics (CMP). At Warwick, the broad CMP research agenda spans traditional and emerging interdisciplinary areas, including diamond, ferroelectrics, magnetic materials, multiferroics, semiconductors, superconductors, and other novel functional materials. We specifically invite applications from candidates who work in the following areas: crystal growth, spectroscopy/modern optics, functional materials. In addition, we encourage applicants who would collaborate with our well-equipped microscopy group and/or our team of theoretical and computational materials modellers. Applicants for these positions should have an excellent track record in publishing internationally leading research and a clear vision of how their work would complement our existing research strengths. Successful applicants will augment the Department’s current portfolio of CMP research activities, and will be committed to excellence in both research and teaching.
The Centre for Fusion, Space and Astrophysics (CFSA) within the Department of Physics at the University of Warwick seeks to appoint to an Assistant Professor in the area of Computational Plasma Physics. Applicants will have a strong research track record and be ready to build their own research team with the support of colleagues at Warwick.
Fixed-term position for 2 years
The Astronomy & Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick is seeking one ambitious post-doctoral researcher to work within the project “Evolution of white dwarfs with 3D model atmospheres”. The position is funded by an ERC Starting Grant held by Dr. Pier-Emmanuel Tremblay, and the candidate will join an existing team of PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers. The proposed project will be centred on the exploitation of the Gaia Data Release 2 colours and trigonometric parallaxes for white dwarfs. The post-doctoral researcher is expected to investigate questions ranging from the star formation history in the Milky Way, the composition of the interior of white dwarfs, and the nature of magnetic degenerates.
Fixed-term position for 3 years
A position is available to work on Ferrotoroidic Structures: polar flux-closure, vortices and skyrmions, in the group of Functional Electronic Materials of Physics Department at Warwick University. The work is built on the encouraging results obtained in PbTiO3-based multiferroic tunnel junctions displaying exotic topological phenomena. The successful candidate will join a program aimed towards to obtain and analyse the fundamental structural and functional properties of polar ferrotoroidic oxides.
Fixed-term position for 5 years
The Centre for Fusion, Space and Astrophysics (CFSA) within the Department of Physics at the University of Warwick seeks to make a senior research appointment in the area of Computational Plasma Physics. Applicants will have a strong research track record. This position provides an ideal career development opportunity during which to build an independent research reputation whilst interacting strongly with existing CFSA activity. This research activity is part of a strategic expansion in Warwick Physics that, if successful, may provide career opportunities beyond the 5-year fixed-term contract.
