PhD openings (including openings at the LPT) at the Doctoral School Sciences de la Matière can be consulted on the website of the doctoral school.

Theory of constrained quantum systems

Starting date: October, 1st 2019 This a proposal in condensed matter theory. The PhD topic deals with the theoretical study of strongly correlated quantum systems, in the presence of constraints between constituting elements. Constraints arise in the physical description of a wide variety of systems, ranging from gauge theories, glass physics, quantum magnets, atomic physics (such as with Rydberg blockade). They result in exciting new phenomena, such as the appearance of magnetic (...)

Investigation of the many-body localized phase

PhD advisors: Fabien Alet, Nicolas Laflorencie

This condensed matter theory PhD proposal deals with the study of the Many-Body Localized phase, a recently discovered new phase of matter induced by the interplay between disorder and strong interactions between quantum particles.

Applications of quantum chaos to the study of the Google matrix of directed networks

PhD advisors: Bertrand Georgeot & Dima Shepelyansky

In the past few years, social and communication networks have become more and more important. In addition, networks appear in many scientific contexts such as genetics, linguistics, dynamical systems...

Stochastic extension of mean field theories

PhD advisors: Eric Suraud & Phuong Mai Dinh

The quantum description of dissipative mechanisms in finite quantum systems if a long standing question in physics. The problem was originally pointed out by N. Bohr in the late thirties, taking as illustration the case a nucleus hit by a neutron, which progressively heats up the system.
