Research Fellow position on Coupled Quantum-Classical Dynamics at Surrey

The Mathematics Department at the University of Surrey (UK) is advertising a full-time Research Fellow position on Coupled Quantum-Classical Dynamics.

High quality candidates from Applied Mathematics or Theoretical Physics (or related areas) with familiarity with numerical methods and a solid background in quantum and classical mechanics are particularly sought.

At the basis of measurement theory, the interaction of classical and quantum degrees of freedom has attracted much attention in several other fields, ranging from mathematics to physics and chemistry. Different levels of scientific capabilities will be engaged: on the one hand, the Fellow will investigate the mathematical features of QC coupling in both reversible and irreversible regimes; on the other hand, they will perform numerical simulations to study decoherence dynamics and other physical effects of QC correlations.

This position is for 2.5 years, starting at any point between 1 December 2021 and 1 March 2022. For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Dr Cesare Tronci via email at

In addition to salary, the successful candidate will receive a generous annual leave entitlement and excellent development opportunities.  The University of Surrey offers benefits packages which include pension, childcare assistance and leisure facilities.

Deadline for application: 6 October 2021
