The Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research in Oxford is a research centre that aims to uncover the molecular causes of cancer and turn this knowledge into better treatments. High-throughput experiments, such as next-generation sequencing, have become an indispensable tool for our research.

Contact Name: Recruitment Administratorq Contact Email: personnel@physics.ox.ac.uk

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant position in the Atomic and Laser Physics department.

The post is available initially for a fixed-term duration of 1 year, with the possibility of extension for 1 year.

The overarching goal of the ERC synergy grant Q-MAC is to exploit materials design, coherent optical methods and multiple theoretical approaches to deterministically control ordered states of strongly correlated electron materials, also referred to as “quantum” or “complex” materials. The underlying ideas can be applied to vast number of problems in materials physics, but the stated goal is that of optimizing superconductivity at higher temperatures than achieved so far, possibly even at room temperature. The proposal starts from research strands that follow challenging but well-establish paths, such as the use of complex-oxide heterostructures and strain engineering at interfaces to modulate the electronic properties. In a second class of investigations, coherent optical control of lattice dynamics with strong field THz transients is proposed to “anneal” the competing order quenching superconductivity. We also investigate using static and dynamic techniques to engineer new phases of condensed matter, e.g. by controlling materials with a single band crossing the Fermi level, to optimize superconductivity. This post calls for an expert researcher to assist with theoretical research in this strand of the project. Specifically, our work aims at developing and adapting optical schemes for the dynamical manipulation quantum materials and to describe the ensuing dynamics.

The postholder will define, develop and undertake theoretical work and numerical experiments directed towards the research programme. They will have involvement in key decisions on research directions, methodologies and research responsibilities.

The successful candidate will be expected to independently write research papers, as well as grant milestone and final reports, as well as presenting results at conferences. Study and interpret experimental results and propose new setups jointly with experimental collaborators.

The role also involves Instruction and day-to-day supervision of graduate students and others and there will be the opportunity to teach.

Applicants should possess a PhD in Physics or a related area, and ideally a strong background in in the theory of driven strongly correlated many body quantum systems, superconductivity, and/or non-equilibrium transport phenomena.

Previous experience in the field of Tensor Network Theory for describing strongly correlated quantum systems will be an advantage.

Candidates are expected to demonstrate a proven track record of research experience, ability to take forward a research project and to deliver output, communication and analysis skills, as well as the ability to work in a team or independently.

Please direct enquiries about the role to Dieter Jaksch (dieter.jaksch@physics.ox.ac.uk).

Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Understanding the Fingerprints of Large Igneous Provinces in the Sedimentary Record

Department of Earth Sciences, Oxford
Vacancy type: Research Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.
Vacancy ID: 141255 Closing Date: 09-SEP-2019
Contact Name: Human Resources Contact Email: personnel@earth.ox.ac.uk

The department seeks to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work under the direction of Professor Tamsin Mather (University of Oxford) to further our understanding of the traces left by large igneous provinces (LIPs) in the sedimentary record. The role will have a specific focus on the element mercury (Hg) that has received widespread recent attention. This post is part of the ERC-funded ‘Revealing hidden volcanic triggers for global environmental change events in Earth’s geological past using mercury (Hg) (V-ECHO)’ project, whose principal aim is to understand the role of prolonged large-scale volcanism in periods of major environmental change throughout Earth’s geological past. The PDRA will contribute to an improved understanding of the environmental processing of volcanic-related emissions between outgassing and deposition and their chemistry within the sediments themselves. This approach will allow us to unlock more information from these volcanic proxies and elucidate the interplay between LIP volcanism and global environmental change.

The researcher will be responsible for undertaking measurements on a series of carbon-isotope excursion events and other records of major environmental change throughout the geological record in order to understand the role of LIP volcanism in triggering such changes. These measurements will include: Hg concentrations, total organic carbon (TOC) and C isotopes (in Oxford with Tamsin Mather and Hugh Jenkyns); Os isotopes (at Royal Holloway University of London with Alex Dickson); Hg-isotope measurements (at the University of Toronto with Bridget Bergquist) and exploratory development of techniques such as sequential extraction and synchrotron measurements to improve understanding of Hg processing and preservation. The PDRA will also work with Nick Tosca at the University of Oxford to undertake low-temperature experiments in the aqueous geochemistry laboratory followed by analyses to understand key, but poorly understood, diagenetic pathways of Hg in seawater both in Mesozoic oceans and under the ‘ferruginous conditions’ thought to characterize the marine environment during much of the Precambrian.

Candidates must hold or be close to completion of a PhD/DPhil in a relevant field, have experience of generating and interpreting carbon-isotope excursions and/or other geochemical signatures of major environmental change encoded in the stratigraphic record, together with an appreciation of the syn- and post-depositional processes potentially surrounding the far-field sedimentary fingerprints of LIPs. The project involves collaborations with other UK and international institutions. Experience working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, networking and setting up new contacts is required. Furthermore, the successful candidate must be able to manage their own research and administrative activities, lead and report on an independent research programme and have excellent written and oral communication skills. There is scope for the PDRA to undertake some teaching, either in taught courses, field courses, or in the supervision of Masters projects.

For further details of the post please see the further particulars. This post is full-time and fixed-term for up to 48 months. We wish to fill the post at the earliest opportunity.

Applications must be received by 12.00 noon on 9 September 2019. Our provisional date for interviews is Monday 30 September 2019.
