Professor Antonio Lasanta Becerra, from the Department of Algebra at the University of Granada, welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) in 2020 at this University. Please note that applicants must comply with the Mobility Rule (more information: http://sl.ugr.es/0aNV).

Brief description of the institution:

The University of Granada (UGR), founded in 1531, is one of the largest and most important universities in Spain. The UGR has been awarded with the "Human Resources Excellence in Research (HRS4R)", which reflects the UGR’s commitment to continuously improve its human resource policies in line with the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The UGR is also a leading institution in research, located in the top 5/10 of Spanish universities by a variety of ranking criteria, such as national R&D projects, fellowships awarded, publications, or international funding.

UGR is one of the few Spanish Universities listed in the Shanghai Top 500 ranking (http://sl.ugr.es/0aw0). The Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) places the UGR in 268th position in the world and as the 4th highest ranked University in Spain, reaffirming its position as an institution at the forefront of national and international research. From the perspective of specialist areas in the ARWU rankings, the UGR is outstanding in Documentation (ranked in the 36th in the world) or Food science technology (ranked 37th in the world), Mathematics and Computer Science (ranked among the top 76-100 in the world).

The UGR has 4 researchers at the top of the Highly Cited Researchers (HCR) list in the Computer Science area. With regard to broader subject fields, the UGR is ranked in 45th position in the universities worldwide in the discipline of Engineering. It is also well recognized for its web presence (http://sl.ugr.es/0a6i) taking 36th place in the top 200 Universities in Europe. Internationally, we bet decidedly by our participation in the calls of the Framework Programme of the European Union. For the duration of the last two Framework Programmes, the UGR has obtained a total of 66 projects, with total funding of 18.02 million euros, and for H2020, 80 projects with total funding around 20.6 million euros.

Brief description of the Centre/Research Group

The Non-Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics Group is pioneering the study of new fundamental physics at the University of Granada. Some of the group’s interests are:

• Memory effects far from equilibrium.

• Fluctuations and relaxation towards equilibrium.

• Brownian motion in the nanoscale and energy harvesting.

• Granular materials.

• Large deviations.

Project description

Memory effects in Soft Matter: In this line we are interested in the understanding and generalization of memory effects, where memory means the capacity to remember, access, and erase signatures of evolution history in the state of a system. We will develop new techniques for the theoretical treatment of these phenomena and define the problem in a number of soft matter material systems. Also, we will collaborate with experimentalists on the design and theoretical treatment of novel and fascinating experiments of actual memory effects at the nano and macroscopic scales.

This line involves the knowledge of stochastic processes, stochastic thermodynamics and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. In addition, analytical and numerical skills are appreciated.

Research Area

Mathematics (MAT) and Physics (PHY)
