JQC Junior Research Fellowship 2017

Posted on 11th January 2017

Applications are being invited for a JQC Junior Research Fellowship.

The intended fellowship duration is (up to) 3 months during the period March – July 2017, and the visitor will be hosted at Newcastle University, which will reimburse all reasonable expenses (including travel/subsistence/accommodation/visa-related issues, etc.) up to a maximum of £5,000.

The position is open to all applicants (UK, European, International), and we particularly encourage applications aimed at initiating a new research project, in collaboration with Newcastle researchers.

Quantum research at Newcastle is of a theoretical nature, focusing on all aspects of ultracold atoms and Bose-Einstein condensation, quantum turbulence, quantum transport and macroscopic quantum phenomena and superfluidity and superconductivity in neutron stars . Permanent JQC staff at Newcastle (with whom the applicant would interact) are: Dr. Andrew Baggaley; Prof. Carlo Barenghi; Dr. Thomas Billam; Dr. Clive Emary; Dr. Nick Parker, Prof. Nick Proukakis, Prof. Yuri Sergeev and Dr. Toby Wood. During their visit, the successful applicant is expected to become an integral part of the JQC, participating in JQC activities at both Newcastle and Durham.

Informal enquires can be made with any Newcastle-based JQC member.

Interested applicants should submit via email to Prof. Nick Proukakis ( the following documents

(1)  a brief application document (not exceeding 2 pages) outlining their research proposal and how it interfaces with (and/or extends) existing research within the Newcastle JQC node, and why they are an ideal applicant for such a post. The application should also include the intended applicants’ visit periods (commencing no later than 1 June 2016).

(2)   a separate curriculum vitae file, including their publication list

Deadline for submission of applications: Monday 20 February 2017 (with decisions communicated early March).
