PhD position in Theoretical condensed matter physics

A PhD is open at the Department of theoretical physics as part of the Slovenian research fund (ARRS).

Candidates will primarily work with Denis Golež, as well as with other members of the department and at the Department of Complex Matter (D. Mihailović).

The deadline for application is June 25.

The research program will include:

• Developing theoretical proposals to utilize driving to find new functionalities of correlated materials.

• Manipulation of symmetry-broken states by light (Mott or excitonic insulators, quantum magnetism, etc. ).

• Realistic simulations of qubit setups.

• Big data compression techniques for nonequilibrium field theory as part of the open-source project NESSi

Moreover, candidates will be embedded in the global research environment with envisioned collaborations including the Flatiron Institute (Prof. Antoine George and Prof. Andrew Millis), University of Fribourg (Prof. Philipp Werner), and University of Erlangen (Prof. Martin Eckstein).

Candidates should have a degree in Physics and excellent skills in theoretical and computation physics (knowledge of C++ is a plus). Your application should include CV, a short statement about your research interests, Bachelor’s and Master’s grades and names and e-mails of two possible referees via e-mail to Denis Goleˇz (
