Call for doctoral position in the field of nuclear theory or ultracold atomic gases

Job Description:

Nuclear Theory Group invites applications to fill one doctoral position in the field of nuclear theory or ultracold atomic gases. The successful candidate will be working on the description of dynamical properties of strongly interacting fermionic superfluids being far from equilibrium state. In particular, he/she is expected to pursue studies of dynamics of quantum atomic gases (vortex and soliton dynamics, quantum turbulence) and/or dynamics of neutron star interiors within the framework of the time- dependent density functional theory. We offer a unique opportunity to work on the most challenging problems related to superfluid dynamics of fermionic systems far from equilibrium. The complexity of the problem poses novel computational challenges. Inevitably, high performance computing (HPC) will be the essential part of the research. Presently we use the fastest computing systems available for open science, like Piz Daint (CSCS, Switzerland), Titan (ORNL, USA) and Tsubame3.0 (GSIC Center, Japan). The candidate will also be partly involved in the software development for such systems. The research will be conducted in collaboration with our partners from USA and Japan.

Requirements:

Applicants must have a M.Sc. degree, or foreign equivalent, and some experience in nuclear theory or condensed matter theory. We are looking for a candidate with basic knowledge of methods of many body quantum mechanics. Prospective candidate should have an interest in computational methods, and their application to solve physical problems. Knowledge of parallel programming techniques (OpenMP, MPI) or CUDA technology will be an advantage.

Employment conditions:

Employment status: Full-time, position starts March 1, 2020.
Salary: 4,500 PLN per month (scholarship).
The successful candidate will be employed as a research assistant within the project: Low-energy nuclear processes within time dependent density functional theory (National Science Center grant). It is expected that the candidate will defend his/her Ph.D. thesis within 4 years.

Application details:

Applications including CV, publication list and research statement should be submitted to ntg@fizyka.pw.edu.pl.
Please include the subject 'phd student' in your email. Recommendation letter sent by supervisor of M.Sc. thesis is expected.
Please include in your application the following statement: “In accordance with the personal data protection act from the 29th of August 1997, I hereby agree to process and to store my personal data by the Institution for recruitment purposes”.

The candidate will be selected according rules of awarding scientific scholars in research projects funded by Polish National Center Science:

For computer scientists:

Nuclear theory group invites computer scientists (both on Ph.D. and postdoctoral level), who would like to get involved in the project directed towards the description of equilibrium and non equilibrium processes in strongly correlated quantum systems: atomic nuclei and quantum gases. The important part of the project consists of the software development being used on leadership class computers. The existing codes created by our group, are based on the density functional theory (DFT) and quantum Monte Carlo methods (QMC). Those codes based on DFT are capable of solving millions of coupled non-linear, time-dependent partial differential equations with high accuracy, allowing for studies of a real-time 3D superfluid dynamics without any symmetry restrictions, which makes them the most advanced simulation capability of its kind in the world, suitable to describe processes of nuclear fission/fusion or quantum turbulence. We are currently in the process of testing our codes on hybrid architectures involving GPUs. We have access to supercomputers of both CPU and hybrid architectures and possess a cluster which is currently being installed, consisting of 36 newest Nvidia GPUs. We offer a unique possibility for a prospective computer scientist to deal with a variety of computational problems ranging from numerical issues, through visualization of the results to problems strictly related to adaptation of the codes to a given computer architecture. The results of our research are published in the most prestigious scientific journals including Science and Physical Review Letters.

Interested persons should contact Gabriel Wlazłowski, Faculty of Physics, office 226b, (email: gabrielw@if.pw.edu.pl)


Call for Postdoctoral position in the field of ultracold atomic gases and nuclear theory (EXPIRED):

The successful candidate will be investigating dynamical properties of strongly interacting fermionic superfluids being far from equilibrium state. In particular, he/she is expected to pursue studies of dynamics of quantum atomic gases (vortex and soliton dynamics, quantum turbulence) and/or dynamics of neutron star interiors, within the framework of the density functional theory, in particular with its time dependent version. Inevitably, high performance computing (HPC) will be essential part of the researches. Presently we use one of the fastest computing systems, like Piz Daint (CSCS, Switzerland), Titan (ORNL, USA) and Tsubame3.0 (GSIC Center, Japan). The candidate will be also partly involved in the software development for such systems. The position assumes also very strong collaboration with our partners from USA and Japan.

The successful candidate will be employed as a research assistant professor within the project: Investigation of quantum turbulence in strongly correlated Fermi systems (National Science Center grant), for a minimum period of 12 months, which can be extended up to 42 months.
