2 postdoc statistical mechanics of glasses (ENS Paris)

A post-doctoral positions is open at ENS Paris to work in collaboration with Francesco Zamponi and Ludovic Berthier.
The research project concerns the low-temperature properties of glasses, and the nature of their excitations and defects. We want to systematically explore the microscopic nature of tunnelling Two-Level Systems (TLS) in these systems, following up on our recent preprints [arxiv:1910.11168 and arxiv:1906.06894]. The candidate is expected to have at least some background in the physics of glasses, and on standard computational methods such as Molecular Dynamics. Experience with LAMMPS is welcome.

Applications are invited for a postdoc in theoretical statistical mechanics, to work with Francesco Zamponi and Giulio Biroli at ENS-Paris, in close collaboration with Grzegorz Szamel and Patrick Charbonneau.
The overall project focuses on obtaining a first-principle statistical mechanics description of amorphous solids. The specific goal for this position is to obtain a microscopic understanding of activated hopping processes, which are elementary, non-perturbative corrections to the mean-field description of liquids and glasses [see e.g. arxiv:1407.5677].
Candidates should have a PhD in physics or related fields, with experience in the statistical mechanics of disordered systems.
