KG Zloshchastiev's group at the Institute of Systems Science, Durban University of Technology, located in the city of Durban, South Africa, opens the visiting positions for 2017. Visits are funded by the National Research Foundation of South Africa through the Durban University of Technology. There is no formal deadline, applications will be considered until the positions will be filled.

The group is now working on several multi-disciplinary topics, with a strong emphasis on these:

Application deadline:

Many-body physics with photons and polaritons is a highly interdisciplinary field, merging diverse areas such as nano-photonics, quantum optics, condensed matter physics, and quantum technologies. The inherent accessibility to local observables, and the ability to probe out-of-equilibrium phenomena make driven many-body photonic systems especially promising for a variety of applications in quantum simulations and quantum computing, as well as in materials science and optical circuitry.
