Post-Doc position Quantum-Phase-Field Theory

The phase-field theory describes the evolution of a set of “phase-fields” in space and time. It treats, base on a Ginzburg-Landau approach the transformation between different phases. Exciting new perspectives are opening by the quantization of this theory. This is done by interpreting the phase-field as a finite domain where quantum fluctuations defined by a wave function |w> exist, i.e. an infinite spectrum of quantum oscillators is attached to non-zero values of the field [arXiv:1703.05583 [physics.gen-ph]]. Further development of the theory will focus on the introduction of charge and a consistent description of the quasi-local limit of space-time which corresponds to the “thin interface limit” of a classical phase-field theory.

One post-doc position is available for initially two years. We seek a theoretical physicist with strong background in relativistic quantum mechanics, but interest and open-mindedness for new concepts.
